SELF pioneered the combination of solar water pumping and drip irrigation to create the Solar Market Garden. This two-village project demonstrates a reliable, economical and sustainable means of irrigation, enabling women farmers to grow crops during the annual six-month dry season for significant improvements in family income and nutrition. The scale-up will expand the project to 44 villages.
