Over the past decade, a small, but significant revolution has been taking place in small-scale irrigation in the developing world with the introduction of the treadle pump. This simple, human-powered device can be maintained at low cost in developing countries.
Millions of farmers have multplied their incomes due to Treadle Pumps.This device has truly empowered the poorest people if Africa .
“One of the biggest compliments that we have ever recived was when an Irish NGO who had purchased Treadle Pumps from us told us that Children are now going to school because of this pumps as they do not have to fetch water from the ponds and lakes manually any more.”
This truly is an example of low cost technology changing the sociological face of an entire community.
