Improving Lives One Drip at a Time

In observance of World Water Day March 22, 2007 ASAP Africa has set a goal of providing 300 rural families directly affected by HIV/AIDS with the ability to extend the limited water available for year-round farming through home Drip Irrigation Kits. “We only need 240 more like-minded people, each donating $70, to reach our goal!”, according to Shannon Dunn, ASAP Africa’s Fund Development Coordinator. A single drip kit will allow a family of five or more to harvest crops all year-round - year in and year out. Located in Zimbabwe, the project will improve the lives of some of the neediest families living on Earth today.

There is no life without water. Nowhere is this more true than in the subsistence farming communities in rural Zimbabwe. Along with the ASAP training in Permaculture techniques, a home Drip Irrigation Kit creates a drought resistant family that will endure regardless of the rains. It enables them to use a relatively small amount water to produce abundant crops throughout the year. This enables the community to not only to better care for themselves but also to care for the increasing number of HIV/AIDS orphans in their community.
Your $70 donation today will bring new life and hope to a family, enabling them to sustain themselves throughout the year. Some may think that one person can not make a difference, but they are wrong! One person can make a difference. Just Imagine - the amount you may spend on one nice dinner ….only $70…. will help a family of 5 or more eat for a year!
