Treadle pumps

The irrigation on the pilot irrigation fields in Kakwale takes place by means of treadle pumps which Foundation Hulp aan Malawi has made available in May 2012. In Zambia treadle pumps are also used. They are provided there by the organization IDE. Look at the story of Victoria Sianchenga who can grow far more crops thanks to a treadle pump. Her income and living standards have risen considerably.
