The first project is an irrigated organic crop initiative during the off-season, covering an area of 2 hectares, in the village of GOUMANGO, located in southwestern Chad. This enterprise is managed by a collective of 8 families. Its objective is to promote sustainable and environmentally friendly agriculture, enabling year-round harvesting through irrigation.
This involves the establishment of an agricultural irrigation system for vegetable and cereal cultivation using solar pumps (electric pumps powered by solar panels) to allow local organic agricultural production even in situations of water stress.
The goal is to improve food security in Chad, increase community incomes, and reduce imports. The total amount for the complete installation is 2.8 million FCFA, which is approximately 4,100 Swiss Francs. Repayment is planned over 18 months.
