Hafir for the Naitolia Primary School Farm in Naitolia, Tanzania

A timeline of the improved water collection practices implemented at school farms

 

TPP continues to provide support for improvements in the management and productivity of school farms. Together with the East Africa Impact Center (ECHO), TPP supported the community in constructing a specialized 75,000 liter water collection pond called a hafir next to the Naitolia Primary School farm. The hafir should capture enough water to meet the needs of the farm and ensure a successful harvest. School farms are an important source of food for the school feeding programs. Impacts of the hafir will be monitored and evaluated for potential use at other school farms and by households during dry seasons to reduce food insecurity.
