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

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

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​ ​plants,​ ​hop​ ​on,​ ​and​ ​after​ ​a​ ​few​ ​more “steps,”​ ​fields​ ​are​ ​quenched,​ ​freeing​ ​up​ ​time,​ ​saving​ ​labor,​ ​and​ ​increasing​ ​yield.
