Water Pump Initiates Irrigation System

Tuti Village, Ethiopia

 

Tuti Village is located close to the Awash River, but most of the villagers were engaged in pasturing and raising animals. In spite of the proximity of the river, very few people were involved in Agriculture projects. The Transformational Community Development (TCD) workers trained a few people and GHNI provided a water pump that helped start irrigation. Even the elders of the village are now engaged in the Agriculture project, producing different vegetables and starting Income Generation. The river is now used for irrigation purposes and more land is being used to produce different vegetables.
 

Thank you!
