Herminal ram puump site

Site drawing for Herminal water distribution
Site drawing for Herminal water distribution

Good news: thanks to good resource management, there were some funds left over after implementation of several of the listed ram pump projects. They have now been all regrouped and allocated to another site which had been put on hold. A ram pump water distribution system will now be installed in the village of Herminal starting in June 2009.

Thanks to all our donors!

Visit to operational ram pump system

in November 2008, I had the opportunity to go and visit the clean water system installed in Amin as part of the 12-village project.

As progress continues on the overall list, it was heartworming to see how the villagers now have much easier access to water in or near their backyard, thank to the ram pump system.

Enjoy the included photo report of my visit and observations.

Thanks to our generous donors.

Funding & implementation Update

Thanks to our donors, Green Empowerment has been able to send partial funds for this group of projects. Amin/Isabela & Bayhao were completed February 2008, and documented in photos in the report below. in June 2008, we received photos of the now completed site of Minaluha and Nagka. They are posted in the photo gallery. Purok Lopues is 80% completed as of June 20, 2008. The funds we are able to provide result in great leverage. As a "Seed", they enable AIDFI to successfully challenge local organizations for matching or complementary funds. AIDFI was successful in securing local funding for several systems, with a combination of contributions from local municipalities (LGU) and a $20,000 grant from Seacology Philippines for this group of projects. Several sites are scheduled for implementation in June & July 2008. 3 sites had to be cancelled due to local political issues, but 3 substiture sites were identified. The spreadsheet below provides the latest status. Funding through Green Empowerment is now focused on Maghumay & Sikatuna.
