4th report on Carbon Free Water

inauguration
inauguration

AWARD Pakistan has taken an initiative to start raising funds for the installation of hand pumps and water wells. In its first phase, 3 water wells and 1 hand pump will be installed in the 4 out of 6 rural areas of Balakot, District Mansehra, Khyber Pakhtunkhaw with the support of the local community. So far 3 water wells and 1 water hand-pump has been successfully installed and rest are under development. It is been found with the study that the water wells are much more effective than the hand pumps as it provides more amount of water than an average hand pump. Therefore due to the requests from the people AWARD Pakistan installed 3 water wells in the 3 areas of Balakot.

AWARD Pakistan’s team which included (Executive Director, Program Director, Admin Manager and Finance Manager) visited the areas and inaugurated the water schemes in 2 of the areas (Jageer and Grang Maidaan). The communities were excited and they welcomed the team enthusiastically. The communities thanked AWARD Pakistan for their efforts and support and promised to protect the project at every cost. The areas also selected two committees to monitor the project and also to be responsible in case of any maintenance.

One of the beneficiaries presented his views as “We had a severe problem of clean water. Our children were affected with the dirty water very much. We found our hope in AWARD Pakistan and we pray for them as they have saved us from the dieases”.  

It is also to be mentioned that an average cost of digging water well and installing a hand pump on mountainous area is 5 to 6 times higher than an average installation in Punjab and other plain areas of Pakistan.

 

APPEAL:

We request all our donors and supporters to support us in the cause to provide children and women (living on the mountains), an access to the carbon-free water.

Dear Friends,

Thank you for your worthy donations and support. Through your support we have been able to implement a project which has started bringing the change in the lives of the rural. The vegetables grown during the month of August has started giving the yield to the beneficiaries. Three Beneficiaries Rashida, Khadija and Shamim made it possible through their hard work. They grew Radish , Potatoes, Corriander and Turnips. The Radish is ready and is ready to be sold. Potatoes would be the next one to be sold in the market. The Selling of Radish has given the beneficiries a good profit. They are very happy and satisfied and want to continue it. Their husbands are also involved in this and are helping them to sell the vegetables in the market.

One of the beneficiaries Khadija Bibi expressed her feelings " I am very grateful to the people who have helped me in achieving this and also AWARD Pakistan who have helped me so that I could support myself and my family. I would love to continue this thing and increase my land and the yield in the comingyears"
