Another day, another world-changing event: After a lot of hard work and collaboration, our community partners in Tunfwane, Zambia recently received seven brand-new treadle pumps!

Treadle pumps basically give farmers superpowers. No more long days hand-watering crops — now it’s all about foot-watering! Imagine an elliptical trainer attached to a water source. Set it up, aim it at thirsty plants, hop on, and after a few more steps, fields are quenched, free-time is reclaimed, labor is saved, and crop yields are increased!

We’re so proud of our friends in Tunfwane, and can’t wait to see all the big things they accomplish next.
