Bucket drip kits, a one time cost of $12, allow women to grow vegetables during the dry season using drip irrigation. Drip irrigation, originally developed in Israel, targets precious water to where it needs to go, the roots of the plants. The bucket is available locally and the farmer (remember, she's likely a female) can raise enough for her family, with perhaps some extra to sell. Much less labor - it uses water efficiently. Less to lug, less time spent fetching it, more time gardening.
