The Green Sahara Revolution is a social impact investment derivative of Green Sahara dedicated to actively empowering people and harnessing all available resources. It is driven by an inner motivation to create innovative solutions to immediate social problems while maintaining a balance between moral imperatives and the generation of revenue.
The Green Sahara Revolution is taking the lead to establish a fundamental rethinking of operational systems that can optimize resources, reduce wastages, empower as many people as possible and thereby be actively sustainable.
The Green Sahara Revolution team was in Hinna Yamaltu Local Government, Dadin Kowa, Gombe State where it just launched the Gombe cluster.
The Gombe cluster has in place a community irrigation system which reduces cost to scale. A single pump is used for the whole community and managed by Upper Benue River Authority using solar energy . This has reduced the cost of irrigation by a significant percentage. Once the water is on your farm like a tap you can decide what system to use.
The team had an Interactive session with farmers and also met with the state provost of Federal College of Horticulture, Gombe State.
