Despite the disadvantages brought by COVID – 19, we shouldn’t lose our hope. We’re increasing our effort and working on more new water pump bikes.
A promise is a debt – therefore, we shouldn’t give up – we already have new water pump bikes for the farmers in Mozambique, being able to start the growing season, fighting against hunger in the dry season.
Riding a bike is a great joy, isn’t it? Anyone can go on a ride and do exercise… However, in Mozambique, they mean greater happiness; a whole family has a meal thanks to a water pump bike! In every opportunity that Mozambicans have to face the challenge of producing their own food their well-being is ensured; they are proclaiming food sovereignty.
To help them, we are working on 17 new water pump bikes – the total number going from 8 to 25; 15 of which are going to Mangunde and 10 to Estaquinha.Moreover, this year we are setting up a repair shop in both places.
A greater food security
After the corn harvest, Mozambicans will be able to grow vegetables, having a richer diet with varied food, guaranteeing greater food security.
Our experts at Green Pedal are supporting families to improve irrigation in May, the dry season.
Currently, Luis and Felipe are in charge of distribution, installation, and technical assistance of the water pump bikes in Mangunde, Filimone, andSete in Estaquinha. Our immediate goal is to train women to be part of the work team to provide increased productivity.
Once the water pump bikes are installed, four of our professionals will visit the places on a monthly basis to support the families in agricultural issues, training them and collecting data of the season.
