Loiborsoit is a Massai community near Arusha, in Tanzania.
TOPtoTOP partnered with ENKAINA-E-RETOTO wants to build the best practice example in the region for a smart water catchment system and solar technology, to inspire others and impact in the region.
The first instalment was a water catchment system built in the local primary school, the next step is to buy a solar water pump for the boreholes in the village.
The problem is that the diesel generators for the current pump is often broken. The community needs cash to buy diesel and oil. The oil is contaminating the water. The mechanic likes to see cash and so it costs too much to travel to Loiborsoit to fix it. They try to fix it by themselves and like this they often generate bigger problems.
Solar is the way out of this circle!
