The project was to repair the water basins in the women’s garden.

Kimberly reports:

The Diagaly Women’s Garden Project is now fully completed.

Cement and iron reinforcement were applied to three of the four basins in order to repair their many cracks and leaks. The final basin required a little more work and, thus, needed to be completely torn down and rebuilt. Additionally, a water hose was purchased to connect the basins to the water tap.

Project funds provided funding for the mason’s labor, numerous bags of cement, iron reinforcement, and water hose.

Currently, the women’s garden is thriving and with the increase in water availability thanks to the basin repairs, the garden now sustains 130 garden plots for over 90 women and their families. This will increase ultimately increase food security and boost the economy within the village.

Thank you for your support and all the generous donations.

We in turn express our gratitude to Kimberly for completing the project. We again extend our thanks to Erin Orias Photography and Kimberly’s friends and family for providing the funds.
