Network for Ecofarming in Africa (NECOFA) in collaboration with Rotary club through Friends of Kenya Schools and Wildlife (FKSW) has supported Mau Stinging nettle presidia producers in construction and installation of ‘‘Rope & Washer Pump’’to ensure availability of clean water, improve sanitation within the households hence reducing cases of water borne diseases, and providing water for farm use during dry spells. With the installation of the pumps, this has created more hours for the members (women) to partake other economically viable activities.

  1. This is a GREAT idea. The Rope and Washer Pump technology is easy to make and quite affordable. We did publish a technical note in our BAOBAB magazine on how to make the pump and received many complimentary messages of success stories! Keep up the good work! Anybody who needs the technical note is available from Arid Lands Information Network (ALIN). Noah
