Project Irrigation Initiation will provide a reliable year-round water source and an irrigation system for four of the most knowledgeable and motivated farmers in a community in Senegal. The area has many farmers interested in establishing orchards and expanding their dry-season gardening, but most lack the technical knowledge to embark on these activities themselves. Irrigation systems will allow these farmers to expand not only the size of their orchards, but the activities within them.

The four farmers involved in this project all live in different villages within 40km of each other. Each is considered the tree expert in his village, and is a source of advice for many people interested in planting trees. They have begun communicating with each other, and hope to soon formalize their relationship into a farmers’ federation to exchange technical advice and to increase their market power.

With the help of the Peace Corps Partnership Program funds, they will dig wells in the orchards, install pumps, and construct small water towers, allowing the farmers to water trees at the far corners of their orchards with a garden hose. These orchards will serve as demonstrations for farmers from all surrounding villages to learn from, and as gardening sites for local women’s groups.

The farmers will contribute digging labor, food and shelter for the expert well digger, sand and gravel for cement mixing, and construction of the water tower. In addition, they will contribute 10% of the project costs in cash.
