During the summer of 2017, a biogas unit was constructed with the help of a team of young engineers from the Engineers without Borders (EWB) society of Nottingham University. They spent three weeks with BERUDA and a video story of their experiences is shown below. As a result of a great team effort between BERUDA and EWB, gas is now being produced and several families have access to clean cooking facilities.
This project is a result of a very generous grant from the Ramboll Foundation to install a biogas unit and a Pig Farm stocked with 100 pigs. The project is substantially complete with the installation of the biogas unit and 80 pigs now in the farm.
Along with the health and environmental benefits of the biogas unit for local families, the future will bring an increased number of pigs, income for BERUDA from sales of piglets and other agricultural initiatives such as small scale farming and raising goats and chickens.
