A Jewish Heart for Africa [1] is providing Israeli technology in the form of solar power and drip irrigation to needy communities in Ethiopia, Tanzania, and Uganda. “We are pumping 20,000 liters of water per day — it’s changed the entire economics of the village and the peoples’ health,” says [2] founder Sivan Achor-Borowich. In its first year of operation, A Jewish Heart for Africa has improved the lives of an estimated 30,000 people.
