The District Development Fund Shipping Services came as result of the need to provide lake transportation to the Omay community. A project was submitted to donors and it resulted in the Fund been given equipment and facilities for the following activities:-
Ferrying passengers and cargo across the lake.
Private charter of the ferries
Transportation of fuel to Chalala and Binga for resale to the fishing communities along the lake shore.
Providing storage, refrigeration and chilling services.
However with the thrust of the ZimAsset programme, the Fund would like to expand it’s scope and run the shipping services on commercial bases thereby increasing the revenue base of the Fund.
