Milling Machines

Milling-MachineOn a visit to Marlborough in 2009 by the Nyansimba, the head of the women in Gunjur put in a request for ten milling machines to mill rice and cous (millett).

Since 2011 we have sent groups from Lloyds Bank to work in Gunjur under the Duke of Edinburgh Award scheme, recognising that their personal development is considerably enhanced by the experience and in successive years they have constructed the housing for and purchased two milling machines. This has meant that women no longer have to undertake the back breaking and time consuming pounding of rice and cous with traditional mortar and pestle.
