Challenge

The women and girls spent between 8 to 12 hours a day on the farm, and they manually supply irrigation which makes them busy all day. Women's poverty is reflected in the household wealth fare, and they are mostly occupied by the vegetable farm activities with intense labor for carrying water to the plant, as they have no modern irrigation equipment. They fetch water from a deep well and manually carry it to their garden. There is therefore a need to support these women.

Solution

The goal of this project is to empower the women's productive capacity in a small-scale irrigation system powered with solar energy for vegetable farming activities for more food and also free the women and girls from the manual irrigation burden which is hampered women socio-economic development and girl's education. This project is focused on improving the condition of women in the Kabinou village through equal access to productive resources, especially irrigation technology with solar power.

Long-Term Impact

The immediate results are the removal of the burden of manual crop watering by girls and their mothers. Adding to that, they have no knowledge of the irrigation technologies that can help them alongside with the smart irrigation water at the highest optimum efficiency, and with no cost on pumping daily irrigation water. So, the income-generating activities toward this micro-irrigation project will have a direct impact on rural socio-economic development. The project will benefit 4000 residents.
