SUCCESS STORY:REPLICABILITY OF THE INITIATIVE(RAIN WATER HARVESTING) AND LESSONS LEARNT



Rainwater harvesting is not a new phenomenon in Kenya except for magnitudes and proportions. Kenyan communities have practised different techniques in rainwater harvesting for a long time but in varying scales and conditions. Most applicable harvesting techniques are simple, acceptable and replicable across many cultural and economic settings.

MAINSTREAMING/SUSTAINABILITY OF RAINWATER HARVESTING



Water impoundment in dams, ponds and wetlands has been encouraged by the Kenya Government for a very long time. Although it is not mandatory for institutional buildings to construct rainwater harvesting facilities, necessity has made many institutions such as hospitals and schools, especially in rural areas, to install rainwater harvesting facilities. As an incentive, tax rebates on roofing materials and guttering facilities have been applied by the Government.To underscore the importance… Continue

i love your photos
ten years ago i walked your land
from the moment of arrival, through the fumes in the airport,
i breathed home
when arriving in the countryside
the joy filling my heart and filling my eyes with tears
undescriblable
to this day that visit home remains the most powerful experience of my life

Fourth of July on the Lake

This past weekend was the annual celebration at the lake house in Connecticut. It is amazing that the lake is still so clear and beautiful after all these years. The watershed association has done a wonderful job protecting these waters from the damaging effects of development.The wood grill was finally ready to cook on, so we didn't miss the propane tank fueled grill anymore. The food actually tasted fresher than in the past and was easy to keep fueled.Dad was very proud of the solar hybrid…See More

Future

FutureToday is 2020/1/1. It is just like yesterday. The war is still continuing. It has started since 2010. In 2010, that year was a horrible year. Almost every energy ran out. Every country’s governments were crushed down at the same time. There were riots everywhere. All of the big company’s bosses were killed xdeadx in the riots. Troops fought each other everywhere. Food was bought up xawayx at once. There were no more food supplies in any shops. The economy was all crushed down. All the…See More

public servants

The exchange works directly for state and public workers and servants. It gives them credit in exchange for the amount of public work they contribute to the community. The more constructive they are based off a base rate the more credit they recieve.

Where I will be in ten years.

Ten years from now I will be in a political job assisting with people in the midlands of South Carolina particularly the rural working class and farmers. As the class of people that feed the nation I find that it is imperative that we assist with making sure they produce as much food as possible. I would like to support local scientists as well that are leading in research on how to produce food more efficiently. I will also be participating in missions to foreign countries to help people with…See More
