Sustainability Award – Gorge and Solar Initiative

Finalist

Our project to develop a reliable water source for our farm in Kenya earned us this Sustainability Award. In order to combat the scarcity of water in the region, we created an innovative solution that diverts captured flash floods from rainfall to the dams that feed the farm. Energy drawn from solar panels is then used to pump the water and distribute it across 3km to the main dam. This storage can now supply the farm with over 2 million cubic meters of water using natural, sustainable means.
