World Water Day Celebration 2017

Before documentary show with one women group

On the occasion of World Water Day on March 22, 2017, ECCA conducted Interaction & story sharing program as well as documentary show for the members of two women groups of Patan, Lalitpur. The documentary was based on water borne diseases and safe drinking water. The theme for 2017 World Water Day 'Why waste water?' was also discussed after the documentary show.

ECCA has been supporting four women groups of Lalitpur in the distribution and sell of chlorine solution (WATASOL) treated drinking water.

Sunita, a resident of Banglamukhi, Lalitpur said, “I used to fetch drinking water directly from nearby stone spout. But after knowing possible hazards of unsafe drinking water on health, I have started using chlorine treated water. We (our family) feel the progress in our health with the use of disinfected drinking water.”

According to the respondents, distribution of chlorine treated water by women group has mostly benefitted low income people who were previously unable to afford water disinfecting technologies due to its high cost.

Distribution of safe drinking water through four women groups is currently benefitting around 150 families. In the coming days, ECCA plans to reach more rural and urban communities devoid of safe drinking water facility.

We thank you for your continued support.
