Subsistence farmers in Lesotho are failing to harvest rainfall which is now coming in storm events. This water is now a threat rather than a help.
Subsistence farmers in Lesotho are ploughing their lands exposing the soil to the wind and sun and making it vulnerable to erosion.
Exposed soil in Lesotho is not producing sufficient food for its community members
By building rainwater catchment initiatives we catch every raindrop & transform a threat into a life saving resource. We stop,sink,store & share the rainfall & eliminate the overland flow of soil rich water. We replace ploughing with nitrogen fixing cover plants, through which food crops flourish.
Our impact video
Funding for: education workshops; cover crop seed; tools and solar water pump.
We seek to run 300 hours of education workshops
We seek capture 30 cubic metres of water per day.
Seek to acquire for subsidized purchase 500 Kg of cover seed
How can you help?
We seek financial contributions up to £15,000.
How we succeed
We work with community members to harvest rainfall, cover exposed soil from the wind & rain & grow food via companion planting retaining soil and soil moisture.
Through sensitive education for sustainable development we can enable community members to become resilient and self reliant.
We seek to advance the education of global citizenship through working together on sustainable development and conservation projects in Southern, Central and Eastern Africa.
