The estimated cost of an irrigation & micro electricity system is $1,286,000 under normal circumstances in North Africa. The probable cost will be double or triple because no project like this has ever been accomplished:
The range of $1,286,000to $3,850,000 of Irrigation Costs will be borne by private investment. The cost of the electricity is $.03/Kwh. The market price of electricity in remote areas of Africa is well over $.15/Kwh. That means a tremendous return on investment for the entrepreneur.

Where does all this electricity come from? the Congo River near Inga.
Micro Irrigation, which is 95% efficient — meaning that almost all the water is applied to nurturing the plants compared with as little as 20% in traditional irrigation. While irrigated land makes up only 17% of all farmland, it produces 40% of the world’s crops.
The Green Revolution has been losing its momentum for a long time. Growth in world grain production slowed from 3% per annum to 1% over the last decade. Improper irrigation techniques cause some of the problems: too much water in the fields leave behind salts that build up in the soil and this ultimately leaves the land infertile.
Somehow the U.N. predicts that farmers will increase the area of land under cultivation by 27% over the next 18 years. Sustainable agriculture will develop without exhausting the land. Organic farmingwill become more attractive as fewer farmers will depend on chemical fertilizers, for example, beans replace the fields’ lost nitrogen.
Genetic manipulation will create more bountiful crops. Micro-irrigation will expand to more than the present 1% of all irrigated lands. Together all these trends could spur a Second Green Revolution –– one that would be less destructive that the first.
Our Mission:to help solve the problem of carbon emissions in the world by growing and managing mature forests of foliage, fruit and nut trees that eventually are used in lumber — not firewood. The Carbon Tax Fund supports a Micro finance initiative to support women farmers and their families who will nurture these trees over their lifetime. The Net Present Value of each tree is up to $2.49.
The Landlord Donor earns a LEGACY: his community will honor him for his generosity. The farm community will be named after him.
The Company, Living Water Is Corporation continues to use part of this free land to support women farmers and an entrepreneur on the land, who will provide employment.
