Project Irrigation Initiation will provide a reliable year-round water source and an irrigation system for four of the most knowledgeable and motivated farmers in a community in Senegal. The area has many farmers interested in establishing orchards and expanding their dry-season gardening, but most lack the technical knowledge to embark on these activities themselves. Irrigation systems will allow these farmers to expand not only the size of their orchards, but the activities within them.

The Creative Literacy Program is a way for youth to prepare for their future. This project involves two parts: a theatrical book club and an English resource center. Students will be responsible for writing and directing their own one act plays and putting on a cumulative theatre performance called the Literary Carnival in English using resources from the English resource center. They will be gaining further knowledge of the English language, experience in preparing budgets and purchasing necessary items, become familiar with planning and managing projects and events, and work on team building and group activities. All of these experiences will not only give young people a creative outlet and a way to exercise their knowledge, but will also provide a safe and comfortable learning environment for those who want to learn English in a fun way.
 
+
The Central Library System also wants to develop their infrastructure and resources in order to help those with disabilities have equal chances to learn English and be included in social initiatives. Often, those with disabilities are ignored, castigated from ‘normal’ society or not provided opportunities offered to others. Citizens of the city and the Central Library System want to provide these opportunities and avert stigma and discrimination by raising awareness of those with disabilities through inclusion in library projects and especially the English theatrical book club.
The four farmers involved in this project all live in different villages within 40km of each other. Each is considered the tree expert in his village, and is a source of advice for many people interested in planting trees. They have begun communicating with each other, and hope to soon formalize their relationship into a farmers’ federation to exchange technical advice and to increase their market power.
+
It is imperative that this project comes to full realization as it will provide social awareness for those with disabilities and will provide tools for the growth of youth in this community. The project will also create a sustainable resource that can be used for years to come with the potential to impact many people in the community.
 
 
With the help of the Peace Corps Partnership Program funds, they will dig wells in the orchards, install pumps, and construct small water towers, allowing the farmers to water trees at the far corners of their orchards with a garden hose. These orchards will serve as demonstrations for farmers from all surrounding villages to learn from, and as gardening sites for local women’s groups.
 
 
 
The farmers will contribute digging labor, food and shelter for the expert well digger, sand and gravel for cement mixing, and construction of the water tower. In addition, they will contribute 10% of the project costs in cash.
