Summary

With your support, CREATE! will help 2000 people in the Guinguineo District of rural Senegal achieve access to clean water, food security, improved nutrition and healthy lives using environmentally appropriate technologies and nature-based solutions under the UN Sustainable Development Goals framework. By rehabilitating existing wells and installing solar-powered pumps and irrigation systems, these rural communities can advance towards achieving agricultural and economic self-sufficiency.

Challenge

In rural Senegal, water, food, and energy insecurity resulting from climate change adversely impacts lives of women and children. Increasingly unreliable weather patterns and few water resources have restricted agricultural activities to the short, three-month rainy season. Rural subsistence farming communities have struggled to remain agriculturally and economically self-sufficient without reliable access to clean and abundant water. Many families thus cannot afford fresh nutritious vegetables.

Solution

By providing access to abundant and free water pumped from solar-powered wells, CREATE! can help rural Senegalese communities become agriculturally and economically self-sufficient. CREATE! field technicians will rehabilitate existing wells and install irrigation systems that will allow women in the communities' garden cooperatives to easily irrigate their vegetables and fruit and nut trees year-round. This will improve food security and nutritional outcomes for the women and children.

Long-Term Impact

In rural Senegal, water is life. Year-round access to abundant and clean water will help CREATE!'s 2,000 beneficiaries in rural Guinguineo District tend cooperative gardens and transform their lives. Through community gardens, residents will have sustainable access to nutritious foods and will gain a reliable source of household income by selling their excess produce. The women will also be trained to save their income that will help them become economically empowered and self-sufficient.
