Access to life-preserving resource for home & farm
Your gift of water pumps and irrigation
Let your generosity flow with the gift of water.
Clean, safe, and healthy, fresh water is the gift that keeps on giving, year in and year out.
Dirty water kills millions of children around the world every year.
Clean drinking water means less disease, fewer deaths and happier, healthier families.
Irrigation systems, including water conservation and recycling, also help families to grow more fruit, grains and vegetables so they have better harvests and a variety of healthy food.
Harnessing the sun to make water flow
Tarsizio Kitti is a farmer from Msiyamphanje village in Chikwawa, Southern Malawi.
This area experiences frequent droughts and recurrent floods, leading to serious crop damage and high levels of food insecurity.
Trócaire and its partners are piloting a new solar-powered irrigation scheme in Tarsizio's village, to bring water from a nearby river to a storage tank, which can then be channelled to crops as needed.
This will ensure a consistent water supply and dramatically reduces the long-hours of physical watering previously carried out by farmers.
