CHE Irrigation Training

Last month, Healing Hand International came to the CCC training center at Ngatataek in the Kajiado district to hold a training on drip irrigation.  Kajiado is a very arid area of Maasailand near the Tanzania border.  From the training center on a clear day, you can see the top of Mount Kilimanjaro.  This is the area where much of our drought relief was focused in 2010.

This past week, I received some pictures from Steven Kutingala, the CHE coordinator for CCC, of the training.

All went very well.  Twenty six of the CCC leaders attended and two leaders are already implementing what they learned in their home area.  As Steven reports:

We thank God for what he is doing giving his people hope where there is no hope. This is because Kajiado is one of the Arid Land and there is a scarcity of water. The community have identified that drip irrigation is the most simplest, cheapest and an important method of saving water in gardens.

Please pray for those in Kajiado as they continue to seek God’s leading in how they can love and support their families in a way honoring to God and his creation.
