Alex and Dan - Solar Installation Nicaragua Trip
Organized by: Alex Porteshawver
EVENT DATE Nov 29, 2014
We are volunteering for 9 days with GRID Alternatives to help pilot a drip irrigation project in December 2014. We're traveling to Nicaragua to help rural farmers and families in need.
We'll be working with GRID Alternatives to pilot a solar powered drip irrigation system that will dramatically increase the farmer's yield during the dry season, help manage water use more effectively and provide significantly more income for each family. This trip will be the foundation for a highly impactful program but we need your help to get it started!
We need to raise enough funds to cover the cost of our trip materials and logistics, including solar equipment ($3,500).
Any additional funds raised above and beyond the $3,500 will be donated to GRID Alternatives to help support its International Program expansion and future installations.
