Providing Water for a Water-Deficient Village

A microproject by Water, Agroforestry, Nutrition and Development Foundation
Providing Water for a Water-Deficient Village

Summary

Poor farmers eking an existence in Barrio Digkilaan suffer from severe lack of water. The opportunity is that there is a small spring down the mountain slope that can be pumped up to the village. The choice is a ram-pump because it has very few moving parts and very robust and does not need external energy but the kinetic energy of flowing water in order to power it. If this is realized, then 175 families in the barrio will have water for drinking, washing and hygiene 24/7.

Challenge

This project will solve the perennial lack of water for drinking, washing and personal hygiene of 175 families living in the mountains of Digkilaan in Mindanao. They suffer for a long time now with water deficiency and this project will surely be of great help for them.

Solution

Water from a spring from down a mountain slope is difficult to bring up and carrying water containers is a burden especially for women and girls. This project will change this if water is pumped via an innovative ram pump technology and water can be readily available up the hill where the local inhabitants are residing.

Long-Term Impact

Availability of water 24/7 means ease in getting water for drinking with the excess to be used in the gardening activities of the families living uphill. This means improved access to food for their nutrition and income.
