All plants at growing stages need water and nutrients to thrive. Desert regions and borders lack surface water and have scarce rainfalls. FADE provides boreholes with necessary distribution networks to facilitate the growth and survivability of the planted seedlings. In addition, pumps, pipes and sprinkler systems are provided to water the trees. The competing schools are also provided with a motorized borehole or a hand pump to irrigate the trees. These boreholes are used not only to irrigate the trees but also as a source of clean drinking water and for domestic needs.
In future, FADE plans to partner with other NGO’s for the provision of water. In addition to encouraging the return of farming communities to reclaimed lands, FADE will endeavour to encourage the construction of small earth dams and artificial lakes wherever possible, as sources of water for irrigation.
