Making a piece of Egyptian desert fertile
TVL is supporting a project whose goal is to make a small piece of the Egyptian desert fertile. The first step is to level the ground with a bulldozer, and then cover this piece of land with black fertile soil. Secondly, a 120 m pipe is drilled to ensure the water supply. Finally, a solar energy source provides for the necessary energy to get the water pump working.
When the project is finished, the land will be cultivated by an entire family, who will be able to live from the selling of the harvest.
