Challenge

Around 500 organized farmers in a commercializing area in Barangay Lakandula, Dasmarinas City, Cavite, located 100 kilometers south of Manila, have been deprived of water services like irrigation for vegetable, corn, and rice crop production for their livelihood. The lack of efficient water distribution system hinders their community to optimize the potential yield of the land they till, keeping their own food supply scarce and income low. Businessmen keep evicting them to get their land

Solution

The Solar Water Pumping System will be able to provide a minimum of 200 liters of domestic water per day, at par with the standard volume set by the United Nations through tap stands or Level ll water distribution that can be shared by five households. This will also provide irrigation to 10 hectares of cropland. Households will be able to fetch water and do laundry at shorter time. This water system increases claim to the land by augmenting their leverage against demolition and eviction

Long-Term Impact

Access to clean and potable water will provide health benefits to the community such as the prevention of water-borne diseases. This will also reduce the burden to children and women fetching water from distant sources. The improvement of productive capacities of the farm will ensure that households can have safe and nutritious food on the table, three square meals a day, boosting their immune system especially as the pandemic goes on. Life for farmers ensured than their land taken by business
