Renewable World - Solar-powered Water Pumping in Nepal
Description: Renewable World uses high lift solar-powered water pumps to bring water to hill communities in Nepal living high above the water source. Water is piped to tap stands within walking distance of households. This project uses clean energy, harnessing the power of the sun, to improve access to water. With improved access to water: * Women and girls spend less time collecting water, carrying it up the steep hills, often causing injury and physical harm. * Families can ensure a higher level of hygiene, reducing illness. * Households can grow crops in the dry season, increasing their productivity and improving their income. Using climate smart agriculture techniques, such as drip irrigation, water can be used in moderation while still growing high value crops such as vegetables, which help improve the livelihood of households. Renewable world, powering people out of poverty!
