Renewable Energy for Farming





History Logs

Project Description

Region: Eastern Europe

Country: Turkey

Location: Adana - Kirikli

Total Budget: $70,000

Areas of Focus: Water and sanitation, Economic and community development

In Turkey, 72% of the available water is consumed in irrigation. Management of water resources for irrigation and increasing of water-saving irrigation is of paramount importance. Agriculture is most important source of income in Adana region. Although there are irrigation channels in the region, for the use of modern water-saving and effective methods must be installed.

By providing motor pomps for irrigation which work with the electricity provided from solar panels water saving and use of renewable energy will be possible. This will be an important matter for low-cost agriculture in the region.

In RC Adana Guney, there are members who are agriculture engineers. They will provide expertise knowledge. Other engineers and biologists will provide education regarding the importance of water saving. Medical doctors in the club will educate the farmers and their families regarding sanitation as well.

The installation of the system will start as soon as we find partner(s) and it will take 2-3 months.

There are 300 families living in Kirikli village and approximately 400 families living in the surrounding.

Note: as of July 1, 2015 there is a 5% additional support fee for cash contributions. This fee does not appear in the financials above because it does not apply if the funds are sent directly to the project account (without going through TRF, and therefore without Paul Harris credit). Clubs sending their cash contribution to TRF must be aware they will have to send an additional 5%.
