In 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 hope to have the Project area open defecation free (ODF) by implementation of this Project and the heath of women and children will be improved in particular and the general public a whole. Local poorer communities are waiting for this marvelous response from the donors to meet the dire need and provide an opportunity to say thanks.
