One of our goal as a home is to reduce expense as much as we can. We have worked towards being a self sustaining children program with little dependence on donor and well-wishers. One of the areas we have targeted is to invest in green energy and other means that will reduce expense. We have approached a number of companies to help us:-
• Harvest Rain Water
• Acquire Solar panels to generate our home electricity.
• Acquire Biogas for cooking.
• Acquire solar drive irrigating pump for pumping water for irrigating our 3 acre farm which we have been planting food crops for the last three years.
We receive a lot of rain throughout the year. Much of the rain water goes to waste because we do not have a mechanism in place that will help us harvest the rain water. We want to harvest the rain water for home use which will help us reduce the expense of paying the water bill. We need water gutters and one tank. We have estimated that we need 130 gutters and one extra tank to be able to achieve this goal. We intend to use this water for drinking and other domestic use.Each Water gutter goes for $3.75.
The total budget for the whole project including one water tank and labour will be $938.
