Recent updates from the field - 500 apples distributed to farmers
By Tsegay Wolde-Georgis - Project Manager
Surface water harvesting system under construction
I am happy to share with you that we bought and distributed 500 apple seedlings in the village of Atebes in July 2012. This was in response to demands of by the farmers to plant more fruit trees. Since the beginning of the project in July 2010, the number of apple trees planted by 200 farmers in the village has reached 1400 thanks to your support. The project is also in the process of completing the surface water harvesting well that started last year (see picture). The contract to dig the pond was given to students so that they can get additional skills and income. The project is almost completed it will collect water during the next rainy season. In collaboration with the local government and extension agents, we have began a restoration of a highly degraded creek using gabion wires. We will send you additional information on the impact of the project in our next report.
Thank you for the generous support. We will appreciate if you share the information with your friends and families so that we can reach our goal. Thank you.
