Biogas

Watchman relief Organization team up with local community members in the construction of bio digesters in rural households. Biogas is an electricity generation system which uses bacteria to generate energy from waste including food scraps and human faeces. Biogas units are sustainable and last a lifetime with minimal maintenance. Biogas digesters will allow rural households access to electricity for lighting and cooking. WRO mobizes for funding since costs vary depending on the size of the unit that needs to be installed. Therefore, WRO also require interested partners to fund our project.

Solar Energy

WRO is making a tremendous difference by cleaning up our climate (especially by helping to cut the use of diesel generators, kerosene lighting, and the burning of coal), helping the poorest people in the world gain access to electricity, and even saving lives through the provision of cheap and clean electricity. WRO thrives also by creating jobs for tens of thousands if not hundreds of thousands of people through greenhouse farming, market gardening, powering village communities and recreational centers through solar energy projects.

Greenhouse and Gas emission

As climate change unleashes flooding, erratic rainfall, heat waves and increased the need for Africa’s corporate sector to play a greater and more proactive role in mitigating and adapting has never been more critical. Launched in 2010 by the Watchman Relief Organization (WRO), as a developing arm of WRO, Watchman Energy and Resources Institute (WENERI), a think tank, an industry body – the initiative provides businesses with the wherewithal and technical knowhow to measure their emissions, identify reduction opportunities, establish short and long-term reduction goals. It also tracks their progress based on the GHG Protocol, the most widely used emissions accounting and reporting standard in the world.

Orphans and Vulnerable Children

The worsening economic situation, characterized by an unemployment rate, has prompted multitudes of people to leave African countries, which has also contributed to child vulnerability. A significant number of children were left without proper care when their parents left the country in search of greener pastures, and mostly ended up on the streets, where they lost the chance to get an education and were open to sexual abuse. Outgoing UNICEF executive director Carol Bellamy told a HIV/AIDS conference in Johannesburg, South Africa, that about 100 Zimbabwean children became HIV-positive every day, while one in every five children was an orphan. Based on the above circumstances surrounding OVC in Africa, Watchman Relief Organization came up with robust OVC projects to intervene and help reduce vulnerability of children who are underprivileged in African Countries.

Environmental projects

Watchman Relief Organization brings environmental and cleanup campaigns to communities and educates the societies on environmental issues for example WRO plays an important role is awareness raising and environmental and/or climate education. Our environmental experts design projects to ensure sustainable utilization of natural resources and the protection of the environmental and come up with plans to prevent pollution and environmental degradation. WRO takes part in societal dialogues/community platforms to gain good understanding of public concerns on the environment and climate change. Our presence is important to provide a sound balance in relation to the interests of other actors. WRO presence in such forums is valuable in co-coordinating and channeling the professional views of both national and international organizations and citizens as input to the decision making process. For the development and implementation of environmental and/or climate policy, WRO participate in preparatory work and expert groups and conduct research and studies, for instance to feedback and help shape policies.

Community development projects

Watchman Relief Organization engages in mobilizing community assets, motivating people, implementing social welfare programs effectively at the grassroots level. WRO investigates the impact of its community development strategy in Africa, in underprivileged rural communities. WRO opened the door for developmental activities in villages. Prior to WRO involvement in villagers WRO discovered villagers who were deprived from basic rights such as education, social, health, economic and political opportunities. Disparity between genders, and caste were also high and tenacious in African Countries. Nevertheless, after the involvement of WRO in the Africa, the livelihood strategies of the locals changed significantly. Villagers had access to reliable drinking water facilities, electricity and modern communication mediums. Informal education was conducted for illiterate women and the occupational castes were also encouraged to participate in the campaign. Moreover, WRO created livelihood opportunities for villagers by empowering illiterate women group and disadvantaged groups.

Agriculture

Watchman Relief Organization’s main thrust of its agricultural projects are meant to increase overall household productivity and financial security through improved yields as a result of improved management and the efficiency of land use.   WRO field operations are focused on good management practices, including timely land preparation and planting, correct spacing of the plant population, appropriate weeding, fertilizing and plan. In Africa, agricultural productivity differs greatly between large scale agricultural enterprises and small scale farms. Major parameters that express this difference are yields per ha, the quality of any product as well as the maintenance of soil quality. WRO agricultural experts are organized with the expressed aim to bridge this divide. Water and Sanitation Dirty water spreads disease and sick children are unable to attend classes. Watchman Relief water and sanitation experts learnt that clean water reduces childhood diseases, keeping children in classes instead of health clinics. Without water, farmers are restricted to specific growing seasons and specific crops. This means less food for their communities and less of a chance for them to earn a living. With access to clean water, farmers can grow a larger diversity of crops; grow during their normal offseason; helping feed their communities year round, and increasing their revenues. Therefore WRO fundraises for projects which promote access to clean water for communities in dire need of water and sanitation According to the UN, an estimated 40 billion hours each year are spent collecting water in Africa alone. This is precious time that could instead be spent gaining an education, going to work, or even starting businesses. Access to clean water allows individuals to put their time and effort into realizing their dreams instead of simply surviving. Each new village drill and well ends the need to gather water and creates new jobs, adding economic sustainability. Young girls and boys spend hours each day collecting water for their families. Providing a well at a school allows girls & boys to spend their time learning, instead of collecting water.
