Following the successful installation of the first treadle pump on the Matitatana River, the community of Sarinesy has joined with TASC Madagascar to install a second pump to irrigate land close to their village. These treadle pumps are substantial, erected on a concrete platform to raise them above the river water during the monsoon season, and built to last. They will irrigate a substantial area and should help local communities provide food and employment. We will add more pictures as the work progresses.
