Challenge

Chocklor community is extremely remote and receives no support from government or any other NGO's. As a result, people have no access to safe drinking water or anywhere to go to the bathroom. Malnutrition is extremely prevalent, especially among women and children, and gender inequality is so widespread that most women and girls can't go to school or work. Disease is common, especially from the water and there is no access to healthcare.

Solution

Help community to establish a management committee to manage facilities. Run workshops exploring gender rights and equality. Train young people in mechanics, construction and health. Set up micro saving scheme. Run workshops on topics water related disease, nutrition, safe sanitation, natural medicine and first aid, hand washing etc. Install a well. Install latrines. Establish a market garden -women are given a plot of land and trained in sustainable agriculture, harvesting and how to sell crops

Long-Term Impact

These structures will give the community the tools to have long-term access to safe water and sanitation facilities, thus decreasing disease. The women-led market gardens will empower women socially and financially whilst tackling malnutrition. Training will empower residents with valuable knowledge which will benefit the entire community. Establishing a saving scheme and committees will allow the community to plan for the future, invest in themselves and ensure long lasting impact.
