Providing Sustainable Irrigation Solutions

Greetings everyone. Seeds for Prosperity is gearing up for the next vegetable season. One of the biggest problems that most village vegetable gardens face is irrigation. As this farming is done in the dry season, irrigation is necessary. Unfortunately, most villages cannot afford the investment cost of irrigation. As a results, yields are often lower than they should be due to water stress. This translates into less production overall.  While a few farms are lucky to have boreholes, many farmers still draw water manually from open wells. This is time-consuming and physically-draining.

We are happy to announce that Seeds for Prosperity is helping five villages this year to address their irrigation problem in a sustainable way. The foundation will construct solar-powered borehole water supply systems for the following villages:

  • Salikeni, NBR
  • Taibatou, URR
  • Foday Kunda, URR
  • Briffu, URR
  • Misira, CRR

Approximately 700 farmers cultivate vegetables on the farms in these 5 villages. This improved water supply will be complementary to our seeds distribution programs by increasing yield.

We will update you soon when these water projects are completed.
