Rainwater

Rain Water Concrete Catchment System
Harvesting rain is a practice that has been around for centuries. Cisterns and other rain harvesting systems are widely used in Europe, Australia, India, the Bahamas and countless remote countries - many who depend solely on rain for day to day life.When water supply becomes limited, practical solutions can fill the gap. Rainwater harvesting systems provide distributed storm water runoff containment while simultaneously storing water which can be used for irrigation, flushing toilets, washing clothes, or it can be purified for use as everyday drinking water.  You can really take this as far as you want. But it all comes down to various filtration and processing systems.

3rd World Tech assists schools in growing their own food. We provide gravity irrigation systems, solar and money maker pumps and instructions as so what to plant, when .. and how to care for gardens and trees.

After a school has clean water the next step is to grow food for local consumption. School children are given tasks in planning and caring for the school garden. By growing locally, we are able to save parents' tuition expenses. In some instances, we are able to grow enough to sell outside the school. When we do, we take the first step toward sustainable growth.

Usually we find farm implements nearby. With local support we create gravity and drip irrigation systems and terracing. Trees grown in our reforestation programs cost pennies to plant but are worth more approximately $100 in just 8 years.
