ORGANIZATION: Idealist.org

Recruiting Organization: Village Hope Inc

I run a social business (www.villagehopeinc.org) in Sierra Leone, West Africa, attempting to reduce poverty in rural areas through economic development. One of our projects is to develop small areas along streams (called IVS or inland valley swamps here) for irrigated rice production. Our team includes Dr. John Daniel, an agronomist and rice specialist working for a major agriculture company in the UAE, Dr. Augustine Rachid-Noah an ag engr and the acknowledged IVS expert in this country, Dr. MIchael Johnny a sociologist with long experience here, and me (PhD in biology and applied statistics; live here; began work here in 2008). None of us is up on modern engineering approaches for small-scale irrigation projects so we want someone to give us general guidance from time to time. A current question is whether we should use impoundments for water storage or work along permanent streams and acquire water using gravity. I am using SRTM data and GIS methods in the project. None of us is paid but if the project takes off, there might be travel opportunities. Much more information about Village Hope and the project available on request.
