Rain Water Harvesting

Long periods without rainfall can devastate families who are dependent on agriculture for their food as well as their income.  As climate change makes weather patterns less predictable, it is the poorest who are suffering the worst.
 
We are working the local communities to cope with drought by helping to develop drought resistant crops, protect livestock and conserve precious water.
 
With a better understanding of the risks they face, and a range of skills to draw on, communities are able to prepare themselves to be able to cope in times of need.
 
We are looking for people of good will to help in training the communities in Rain water harvesting and also help in financing the building of either underground tanks or or open tanks to help in the irrigation of the local farmers gardens during the long dry spells that are common in these areas.
 
The system involves collecting rain in a tank below the surface of the ground, to be used for market gardening. The tanks are built using effective water conservation methods to reduce evaporation and can hold up to 15,000 - 30,000 litres of water.
