Team story

[p]Hi, thanks for visiting our page. Through Virgin Money Giving, you can sponsor us and donations will be quickly processed and passed to charities. Virgin Money Giving is a not for profit organisation and will claim gift aid on a charity's behalf where the donor is eligible for this. We really appreciate all your support and thank you for any donations.[/p][lt]div class="data_field"[gt][b]Project Moz Irrigation[lt]br /[gt][/b][lt]/div[gt][lt]div class="data_field"[gt]A team of Young Engineers from the Institution of Mechanical Engineers (IMechE), have partnered with a charity in Mozambique, to design and build an irrigation system. The project aims to benefit the local rural community by using a bottom up approach to increase agricultural productivity and income.[lt]/div[gt][lt]div class="data_field"[gt]In June 2011, the IMechE proposed that the Young Members of the IMechE be involved in an outreach project. After some research, the group chose to work with Project Moz, a registered charity with experience in carrying out community projects in Mozambique. With this charity, we identified a project to design, procure and install an irrigation system for 2 hectares of farmland. This would provide [lt]span class="text_exposed_hide"[gt]...[lt]/span[gt][lt]span class="text_exposed_show"[gt]a year round living for 30 farmers and their families, bringing increased farm productivity to a desperately poor, and drought stricken part of the world. [lt]br /[gt] [lt]br /[gt] A multidisciplinary team young engineers was set up and have thus far developed a scope and have completed concept design. Furthermore, we have identified local suppliers and an estimated cost of installation. Using local community capacity and targeted technology the new irrigation system will include a new borehole/well, pumping systems, buffer tanks, filters and pipework. As a team of young motivated engineers, we relish the challenge to round off this project by September 2012. We are now finalising the design and contacting suppliers in Mozambique. The next step is to send a small team to Mozambique early this year to discuss plans with the community, meet suppliers, survey the area and identify any issues before the installation of the system.[lt]br /[gt] [lt]br /[gt] This is a fantastic opportunity for the community in Mozambique and also the young project team, project sponsors and the Institution of Mechanical Engineers. Your ongoing support for this project would be greatly appreciated.[lt]/span[gt][lt]/div[gt]
