the Stars Foundation in Africa
The Stars Foundation visiting Action in the Community Environment (ACE) in Bungoma, Kenya...13 year old Bryan is tending to his vegetables (Amaranth) a vegetable full of nutritious vitamins and fibres. Bryan is taking part in one of ACE's programmes using a simple drip-drip irrigation technique where 20l water containers are raised of the ground and connected to tubes running down through the field. The tubes are perforated so that they irrigate the field and crops evenly as the water runs though the tubes and spurts onto the ground. This very low-tech system helps Bryan save a lot of hard labour in collecting and distributing water to his crops and the result is a fertile and busy field of Amaranth. Here Bryan is filling up his water containers used to drip feed his plants with water.
