The first step of the project was project idea and design. Next step was buying the land where to carry out the project. These phases of the project have been completed, land design ongoing. Also the land has been cultivated and will be more and more in the future to grow different agricultural products (banana trees, plantain trees, turmeric, cassava, pineapples etc) and medicinal plants (noni, moringa, cinnamon etc) to be used for selling, transforming into food supplement etc.

The cultivation of the land and organic garden is one part of the learning center’s activity. Good irrigation system in place is needed for successful land cultivation and agriculture. The water management is also essential to prevent any damages to the constructions, the plantation, crop caused by heavy rains; accidents caused for example by falling stones due to the floods etc.
The next/current step (project) of the project is water management to facilitate the project’s implementation:
- 1. Rainwater management
1.1. Construction of swales
1.2. Construction of the ponds
Controlling and managing the rainwater falls by constructing the swales to direct the rainwater to the ponds taking into account that the land is located on the slope of a mountain. This is relevant during rainy season.
- 2. River water management
2.1. cleaning the river sides and implement the canopy bridge
2.2. Purchasing and installation the water pumping system and plumbing equipment 2.3. Construction of the water towers
2.4. Purchasing and installation of water tanks
Collecting/pumping the water from the river to the tanks supported by the water towers located in the land area. This is relevant during dry season. The future perspective projects to do for facilitating the ECDH project establishment are: After the water management then will follow the building of residences, ecolodge (up cycle and green building) study hall or room etc.. Then training on the ECDH ground moment.
We invite you to encourage the project ECDH to Donate a few small coins per week or even monthly to make the project ECDH water management steps and others steps happen because of you. Indeed the project will be completely realised in the future days that are coming. Thanks for you in advance with a huge gratitude for your support of the realisation of the ECDH project. Our reward is that you are welcome with us free of charge for your stay in Togo.
