Clean drinking water for persons with disabilities

Summary

Sujawal is one of the poorest districts of Pakistan with a high prevalence of persons with disabilities. Even in this day and age, drinking clean water and better educational opportunities are like dreams for a person with disabilities. NOWPDP is opening up a Model Special School for education and skills development. We need your support to build an RO Plant under our school premises that will provide clean drinking water to 2200+ persons with disabilities and their family members every day.

Challenge

Clean drinking water is a privilege in Sujawal. This is one of the many reasons why children drop out of school as they become victims of diseases such as diarrhea, malaria, typhoid, and polio. Our aim of opening Sujawal's first Model Special School, which will provide formal and skills development education, is not possible without provision of the basic human right of drinking clean water.

Solution

NOWPDP proposes to install a Reverse Osmosis (RO) Plant that can generate 5670 liters per day, which will allow 2200+ children with disabilities and their family members to get clean drinking water every day. Funding is required for plant installation, boring, one-year operations, facility to keep the plant, filling station, room renovation, and ramp for persons with disabilities.

Long-Term Impact

Clean drinking water has a positive impact on health. It will ultimately improve educational and skills development outcomes of persons with disabilities in the upcoming Model Special School in Sujawal.
