Wordless Wednesday #24 - Pedal Pump

pedal pump

Let's get physical!
Indeed, it is. Please allow me to describe what I'm doing in the picture as someone commented about not getting it. In the picture, I am demonstrating how to draw water under the ground using a pedal pump, and it took me about 10mins to fill a bucket. Pedal pumps like this are effective in responding to water shortage and lack of irrigation systems in rural areas of developing countries like Cambodia and India. I used to work with HEKS Cambodia Program from 1999-2003, helping rural people improve their livelihood by introducing sustainable agriculture activities and organize community-based organizations to enable them to help themselves. As mentioned, it takes a lot of stamina to fill a bucket - it's equivalent to doing one session of aerobics. To know more about HEKS Cambodia Programme, click here.
