Women lead Safe Drinking Water practice in community

 

Nepal is regarded as one of the richest countries in water resources but people have problem of water scarcity. Department of Water Supply and Sewerage  estimates 80% of the total population to have access to drinking water, however it's safety cannot be guaranteed. People of larger cities like Kathmandu valley are even more devoid of access to adequate and safe drinking water due to its growing population. Especially women, who are mostly assigned to look after household chores, struggle to collect and manage water storage for their families.  

To minimize the hardship, Hamro Sankalpa Mahila Samuha, a women group of Chyasal, Lalitpur came forward last year. They installed water tank  and adopted water purification technique in their community with ECCA’s support. Ms. Kanchi, one of the members of the group took the initiation and started to distribute WATASOL (chlorine solution used for water disinfection) treated water in her community soon after the earthquake.

“Everyone dreaded the outbreak of water borne diseases. We feel that we have taken action to prevent it”, says Byanjankar.  Currently the supply is enough for about 90 households in the locality.

This initiation has not only helped to provide adequate and safe drinking water to the community but also has contributed towards women empowerment and entrepreneurship by bringing them together to solve a common problem.

 

Environmental Camps for Conservation Awareness (ECCA) has been working in the field of safe drinking water in various regions of Nepal since the year 2000. We thank all our well wishers for the support. To receive regular update about ECCA activites, please visit our Blog site,  Facebook,  Twitterwebsite, and YouTube Channel.]

KEDRIN- Update

The first phase of Khokana Earthquake Debris Removal Initiative (KEDRIN) has completed. Besides minor cases, sixty one houses were either partially or completely demolished in the first phase of the initiative.

The site work of the first phase was started on the 25th of the April, 2016 and took longer than expected due to a start of pre-monsoon; it nearly took 1.5 months to demolish and clear the debris of sixty one plus houses. The activity was done with full participation from beneficiary and the community on the supervision of Khokana Reconstruction and Rehabilitation Committee (KRRC). A back-hoe loader and the tippers were hired to help in the demolition work. The beneficiary and the machine operators worked hand in hand to achieve this result.

KRRC had identified the cluster/pockets (wards) according to the priority criterion: they have chosen the most vulnerable houses inside the town, damaged and most susceptible to falling down.  Majority were theses houses were located at wards 6, 7 and 8. Among the selected, some were demolished partially and some were demolished in consultation with and need of the beneficiary. About 350 people benefited from the first phase of demolition work directly. In addition it has also indirectly benefited larger population, the community people and the regular commuters.

The above work was possible only with the support received from GG and the well wishers of ECCA. Khokana Community and ECCA are very grateful to the people who have heartily supported and continuously supporting the cause. It is my great pleasure to volunteer this initiative and would like to appeal for more help to rebuilding Khokana.
