Door To Door program by students for safe water
After the detection of fical coliform in a water analysis done in the month of June 2012, ECCA realized the need of implementation of Safe Drinking water campaign and initiated the activities in both the schools (Kalidhunga H. Sec. School & Majhgau Sec. School). In the process, the students and the teachers were equipped with the device for producing chlorine solution along with a two day training program for the production of chlorine in the month of August 2012 in school. Then after, the students and teachers were actively involved in the production, use and promotion of WATASOL (Chlorine solution) in the school. The excess amount of watasol being produced in the school was being distributed in their local community to provide safe water for the community members. As a continuity for the program, a refresher training was organized for the students and teachers in order to enhance their skills and knowledge towards the production and used of chlorine solution.
On 6th March 2013, students organized door to door campaign for the promotion of safe drinking water campaign and awareness rally towards the need and use of safe water in the community. Approx 90 students were actively involved in the program and visited around 120 household in mirge VDC. They oriented each household owner regarding the importance to stay healthy through using safe water. They were also able to succeed to raise funds through the distribution of WATASOL in their community.
In order to strengthen the skills of Nature Club (NC) members a regular follow-up activities were conducted in which monitoring of the activities implemented and the planned programs were monitored with feedback and suggestions for improvement. During the follow-up activities, a vigorous interaction with NC members were also done and new possible programs in order to develop the skills and knowledge were also discussed.
Recently, two new schools – Kali Devi Lower Sec School and Laligurans English Boarding School were also visited as per their interest to implement safe drinking water in the community.
