Some of them have already CGI sheet roofs to modify in Rain water harvesting enables. Sites for water ponds construction and the process of community mobilization has also been initiated and got a good acceptance and appreciation. It will bring the people out of grab of rare water. It is hoped to have the Project area open defecation free (ODF) by implementation of this Project and the health of women and children will be improved in particular and the general public as a whole. When we identified this need from Union Council Degwar the local community altogether were very thanks full upon, because they need water for vegetable growing, cattle raring, using in Toilets, washing clothes, Constructing houses and a good sanitation. Because this area is water scares. Local poorer communities are waiting for this marvelous response from the donors to meet the dire need and provide an opportunity to say thanks.
