Challenge

Efficient irrigation provides a controlled source of water to diverse crops throughout the year, enabling rural farming families to stagger production cycles and cultivate their land during the dry season as well as the rainy season. This advantage provides a year-round source of employment and income, empowering thirty-six (36) families and communities to stay on their land and build productive and stable lives and economies.

Solution

The project includes the build this year of one 20,000 gallon tank and laying of tubing/piping for 19 acres of irrigation. Thirty-six (36) families in the village will benefit from this water source for both communal and individual family crops.

Long-Term Impact

A sustainable source of water year-round provides stability for families by lengthening growing season, diversifying crops and increasing their income-generating potential, as well as increasing quality pasture for livestock.
