    Getting Where We Need To Go

    Pipe extensions will help the farmers of Annayo transport water from one end of their farm to the other, but it won’t get the water to the nooks and crannies that it needs to.

    We heard farmers talk about the need for irrigation systems that go the distance, but that are pliable, too. So we decided to help them get both!

    Today, we’ve gotten them soft, bendable pipes. They can attach these to the 100 and 200-meter pipes and reach any and all of the places they need to water.

    “One of our biggest problems is having long enough pipes that can reach all of our trees,” said Mohammed Mahdi, “and we risk losing some of them because we can’t get enough water to them.”

    Having not only enough pipe length, but the flexibility to get the water where it needs to go, will ensure that farmers like Mohammed can save their trees – and help them bear fruit.
