UPDATE II: Empowering Tanzanian Farmers

The project has been successfully completed and significant progress is being made on the farm. The entire drip irrigation system is currently fully operational, thanks in part to the adjustments we made to the water infrastructure on the farm. Thanks to S4S, we have been able to realize this project. S4S helped us acquire a new mother tank of 10,000 liters, which provides the entire farm with all the water it needs, and also enabled us to raise the level of this tank by 2 meters. This way, we have sufficient water pressure to supply the irrigation system with water using gravity.

At this moment, almost all 8000 tomato seeds have grown into tomato plants, and it is expected that harvesting can take place by the end of April. After this harvest, the farmers will use the proceeds from the tomatoes to save money for their own agricultural enterprise in the future. Once the tomatoes are sold, they will sow the land again and then attempt another successful harvest in the fully dry season. With the help of all the investments made in recent months and this fully sustainable irrigation system, this is now possible!
