  • Making 100 house’ roofs able to harvest rain water
  • Construction of 100 water ponds
  • Hygiene and sanitation trainings for the people especially mothers and fathers of children
    of age less than five

Project Potential:

 The proposed Project area receives 1500 mm rain/year which can be stored and we want to modify house
roofs which are made up of CGI sheet to store rain water and to construct water
ponds it will be done by training of local people who will build such roofs.
Some of them have already CGI sheet roofs to modify in Rain water harvesting
enables. Sites for water ponds construction and the process of community
mobilization has also been initiated and got a good acceptance and
appreciation. It will bring the people out of grab of rare water. It is hoped
to have the Project area open defecation free (ODF) by implementation of this
Project and the health of women and children will be improved in particular and
the general public as a whole. When we identified this need from Union Council
Degwar the local community altogether were very thanks full upon, because they
need water for vegetable growing, cattle raring, using in Toilets, washing
clothes, Constructing houses and a good sanitation. Because this area is water
scares. Local poorer communities are waiting for this marvelous response from
the donors to meet the dire need and provide an opportunity to say thanks.
