Yangbari Kitchen Garden Irrigation Project
As the farmers of Yangbari are suffering from nutritional deficiency, and are having low living standards, it is most important for the 45 households to be trained in vegetable cultivation to gain a minimum level of dietary energy consumption and income generation by selling vegetables. With the watering facility at easy reach, they could grow vegetables throughout the year, producing different varieties of vegetables.
The Project consisted of the construction of a 39’200 litre reservoir tank and fitting of 5720 m High Density Polythene (HDP) water pipes and sprinklers in 54 gardens.
This project was implemented through the Bhutan - Switzerland Society in Thimphu and funded by two private donators through the Society Switzerland - Bhutan.
