Water Storage System
September 2017, Mozambique
Help finalise a project for water storage and irrigation system for Casa do Gaiato-Maputo.
Casa do Gaiato receives sufficient rainwater yearly to fulfill all the needs of the orphanage, health care centre, schools and farm; however, all the rain occurs in a space of 4 months. So with a poor water storage system it means that the theoretically sufficient amount of rainfall falls short of the needs of the complex, meaning water needs to be transported from extremely large distances, making it expensive to maintain the farm functioning during the late months of the dry season.
