Application of Money Maker Pumps to improve small scale irrigation systems by farmers themselves:
Thanks to financial and material support of United Nations - World Food Program and hard work of the team of Kilimanjaro Hope Organization (KIHO). On Wednesday, 23 and Thursday, July 24th 2014; the Kilimanjaro Hope Organization had a pleasure to be able to supply 7 manual pumps to farmers of Minyala village. On Wednesday 23rd, the three development initiative groups namely, Miu Mwera Group, Mwamko Group and Kilimo Hai Group, each received a complete set of the Money Maker Pump.
On Monday, KIHO visited some rural women in Kirinjiko, a sub-village of Chajo. It is a 15 minutes drive from Same town along the tarmac road to Dar es Salaam and the sub-village consists of some 70 households. In earlier times, the women sold charcoal to people-passing by in their vehicles on this busy road. However, all the big trees in the area have been cut down in the meantime, bringing the charcoal-making business to a halt. Today, the women rely on selling firewood. However, around their area even the smaller trees have been cut down.
KIHO director Kateri Daniel Genes and the three EU Aid Volunteers went for a two-day trip to Moshi and Arusha to learn more about agricultural and income-generating initiatives. On Monday we visited a woman, Mama Anna Shoo just outside of Moshi, a place called Maili sita. Mama Anna is involved in mushroom production, solar-drying of vegetables, fruits and mushrooms as well as in wine production made out of rosella (hibiscus). Since ten years Mama Anna is engaged in the women initiative called “Shiri Tumaini Group”.
