Title: Sustainable Water Extraction and Distribution System for Agricultural Applications in the Namawanga Community, Kenya
James Madison University students will partner with the non-profit organization Least of These International, Inc. (LOTI) to create a sustainable water pumping and irrigation system for the Namawanga Community in western Kenya. Currently the community does not have adequate water for crops to feed everyone. The project will test two different systems designed for their durability, efficiency, ease of use, and ease of integration into the community.
