Summary

This project is to install a water system at Peace Demonstration Farm in Uganda. The purpose of the farm is to teach Ugandans to expand their thinking about farming, and to teach them new and innovative farming techniques. This will help people pull themselves out of poverty by giving them a hand up, instead of a hand out. The farm will use the water well to irrigate crops, and the well will serve as the primary source of clean water for the villages of Nyenje and Budugala.

Challenge

We need a sustainable way of watering our crops, on a year round basis- especially during the harsh dry seasons.

Solution

By installing a solar water pump, storage tanks, and an irrigation system, we will be able to water our crops year round and show the people and beneficiaries the value of new and innovative water techniques.

Long-Term Impact

Peace Farm is a demonstration farm. This means that we teach people new and innovative farming techniques such as watering, crop rotation, composting, ect. By watering our crops, Peace Farm will be better able to show people these techniques which will enhance the lives of the farmers, and thus help the farmers raise themselves and their families out of poverty.
