Mwinyi Village Drip Irrigation
Projected Completed Date
Mwinyi Village, home to 4,000 people, is located in the Chamwino District, 50 kilometers away from Dodoma. Since the installation of the solar water pumping system in April 2019, people’s health has tremendously improved and villagers have been involved in many economic activities, such as the creation of vegetable gardens. In December 2019, Innovation: Africa in partnership with Water 4 Mercy installed Drip Irrigation at Mwinyi Village. Nermine Khouzam Rubin, Founder & CEO of Water 4 Mercy, together with the technical support from CultivAid, was present as the newly established Drip Irrigation Farm was initiated. The community received seedlings for onions, tomatoes, sweet peppers, and okra along with one year of comprehensive training by a team of professional agronomists. The lead farmers at Mwiny Village’s farm are refining their skills in crop nutrition, soil and nursery management, pest and disease control, as well as harvesting methods. Today, Mwinyi Village is benefiting from access to safe and clean water as well as food security and economic independence, further improving their health and well-being.
