Dear donors and supporters of TU eMpower Africa,
thank you very much for the huge support over the last months!
Together with the local community, we have already achieved the most urgent steps, despite all challenges accompanied by the global pandemic. This includes:
- planing and sizing of the system expansion
- installation of a solar-powered water pump by a local company
- purchase of drip irrigation components
The solar-powered water pump has shown to be the major backbone of the communities' water supply, particularly for irrigation but also for household needs and drinking water.
We are currently coordinating with our local partner to finalize the installation of the drip irrigation to make it fit best to the (new) conditions on site. This will be done within the next couple of weeks, depending on the schedule of our local partner, and will lead to a more efficient water usage already during this dry season.
We also started a project aimed at improving food processing infrastructure. In a participatory approach our project team is working on understanding local demand and requirements for sustainable operation.
As always, we'll keep you posted, more frequently on our social media accounts (Instagram, LinkedIn, Facebook). Please get in touch with us if you would like to find out more about how to support us.
