In early April 2016, after almost 5 months on the high seas, our shipment arrived in Waya. Greeted by Chief Togbe Labluluu and Mr. Raymond Cole (a representative sent from Adaklu Water Project), the container was a long awaited arrival.
The container held 3 tractors, 2 plows, hundreds of pieces of school furniture, and various farming tools. The idea to send tractors began as a suggestion from the local Waya community and has spurred many plans to boost the farming activities in the area. Since 2013, Adaklu Water Project has worked tirelessly to repair used tractors that were donated or sold at very generous rates to the farming project. In the future we hope to see the young people of Waya running more successful and sustainable farms than the small backyard plots. We plan to send more shipments of tractors or farm equipment in the future. If you know of any equipment that is in need of good use consider donating.
