Info about the Garden Irrigation System


This project aims to provide funding to purchase piping and other materials needed to build an irrigation system to a large garden owned and farmed by the local HIV/AIDS support group. During a year of severe drought, such as 2007, irrigation systems can mean the difference between eating and starving, especially when the fruits of the garden feed children orphaned or left vulnerable by the HIV/AIDS epidemic that is overrunning Lesotho.
