Challenge

Limited natural water catchment, unpredictable rainfall & dry spells mean villages rely on a number of different water sources- seasonal wells, boreholes & rainwater. Water shortages are not uncommon, especially during the 6-month dry season from May-October.

Solution

Rainwater collection is a safe & reliable way to source drinking water. Without sufficient collection capacity, long-term water management plans, system upkeep, filtration & a system of water reserves, villages become particularly vulnerable to severe dry spells. Funding Rainwater Harvesting Systems & awareness programs, rainwater can be utilized as a long-term solution to water shortages. Better sanitation & hygiene will be reinforced with workshops, education & investing in infrastructure.

Long-Term Impact

Since June 2017, Installation of 6 x RWH tanks and renovation to provide adequate access to water for local communities. Helping to prevent the spread of communicable disease and improve poor sanitation practices and access in service limited communities.
