Maarten's Work in Tierra Colorada

Maarten instructs Lety on how to use her biodigester

Maarten has spent this last week in Tierra Colorada installing a biodigester system with Candido for Dona Lety. Dona Lety is a victim of domestic violence, and AIDG has donated this system to her and her 4 children to help offset expensive fuel costs and provide fertilizer to help increase her crop’s productivity. In this picture, Maarten is showing Lety how to mix pig manure with water before dumping it into the biodigester. Each day, Dona Lety is to put in more manure or food scrap, and in the coming weeks gas will be produced, and Dona Lety will have a source of clean burning fuel.
