Summary

TUMAM GHANA plans to replace grid powered boreholes with solar powered mechanized boreholes in Bongo-Tankoo-GHANA for 500 women farmers to cultivate organic vegetables during the dry season. Extreme drought, erratic rainfall and power supply due to climate change variability have increase the vulnerability of farmers mostly women in Northern Ghana. The project will eliminate malnutrition and address sustainable development goals of ending poverty, zero hunger, promote good health and well being

Challenge

TUMAM GHANA currently assist over 500 women farmers to cultivate organic vegetables using two grid powered mechanized boreholes. The power supply from the grid system is erratic, unreliable leading to the withering of crops in periods of no power. The cost of electricity bills is very expensive and result in high maintenance cost due to system breakdown. Our effort to use renewable power forms part of our goal of working with communities to sustainably minimize poverty using green growth methods

Solution

The project seeks to provide a solar mechanized borehole with storage tanks and irrigation systems that will enable farmers to undertake all year round organic farming of vegetables. The solar system will help make a savings of usd$ 5000 per year. It will also enable the women to gain access to clean water for drinking. women will also produce Moringa and fruit crops on the irrigation site.

Long-Term Impact

The project will eliminate malnutrition and address sustainable development goals of ending poverty, zero hunger, promote good health and well being among women farmers in the two communities. The solar system will help make savings of usd$ 5000 dollars per year. This will will make money available for replication of a similar facility to other women farmers in the district.
