Challenge

Water scarcity and inaccessibility has plagued poor villages for years- main water sources are artesian wells that dry up easily during summer and the water services of the local water district charges high fees with unpredictable and often unreliable water supply. It is mostly the task of women and children to walk (1-2 hours) daily downhill for more than a kilometer slippery hike to their water supply. Waterborne diseases are constantly recurring and the previous solar water pump is damaged.

Solution

Rehabilitation of the damaged solar water pumping project will provide clean potable water directly to the houses of 85 poor families. In the rainy season, more water can be pumped, supplying more water for backyard garden and livestock raising.

Long-Term Impact

In the long run, 435 villagers of Paang Bundok will have a steady supply of clean water that is accessible and affordable. Solar power will provide water year-round for backyard gardening, livestock raising and tree planting. The community will be provided technical and organizational training to allow the People's Organization to run and maintain the system sustainably long-term.
