Our volunteer recently visited the project. The construction of surface water harvesting structure is going on as schedule. It will be filled with water in the coming rainy season. A 30 cubic meter structure is dug, stones are collected, and cements are bought for the structure. We hope to bring a picture of the pond filled with water at the end of the rainy season and lead to sustainable water supply. Our apples that are being watered with buried clay pots one year and 11 months. The fruit trees will be pruned very soon and additional training given to our partners. Our volunteer recently sent us one of the trees starting to give fruit at this young age. This achieved because of the support of volunteers alike. Thank you for your continued support.
