In order to have access to a renwable energy source, mainly for our irrigation system as well as other appliances onsite, Evans traveled to South Africa to buy a solar system, as prices from local suppliers in Zimbabwe are too high.
Evans managed to buy a 6KVA/4000W Solar Kit including 4x batteries, 1x inverter and 2x 330W solar panels, which will be installed shortly onsite.
The plan is to pump the water straight from the river (close by) into a tank (500m) in order to irrigate our fields more effiecient and sustainable.
For this purpose a DC solar system and pump would be the best choice but it is quite expensive.
Unfortunately Evans hadn’t had enough money to buy the DC pump.
Therefore we are currently raising money for the urgently needed pump for the solar irrigation system.
At this point we want to thank all our supporters for their help.
Together with you we made great progress in 2019.
Let’s keep up the good work.
