Project Rural Irrigation System for Ekumdipe (Project RISE), an African Development Initiative sponsored project, was created with the goal of helping Ekumdipe and its surrounding communities overcome poverty and its extreme effects by providing the citizens of the township with a rural irrigation system to overcome idleness during the unproductive dry season and substantially improve income. Project RISE is taking the ADI approach to the issue of poverty that is hindering Africa by taking the mentality of helping others help themselves. We feel that the members of Ekumdipe will be able to rise to the occasion and will be energized to take more control of their respective situations with some assistance from others.
Updates!Project RISE Phase 1 is now underway! Please check out our ongoing blog at http://projrise.blogspot.com for the past entries on creating the irrigation system!
