Project Update - Safe Water

By the end of December 2010, following activities have been achieved.

  • ´╗┐´╗┐´╗┐´╗┐Implementation of project in two more districts of Nepal: ECCA had started safe drinking water program in eight districts of Nepal; Lalitpur, Kathmandu, Bhaktapur, Morang, Jhapa, Rupandehi, Aachham and Chitwan. Recently, ECCA also implemented safe drinking water program in two more districts; Illam (in partnership with a NGO, Namsaling Community Development Center) and Sunsari (in partnership with Samyak Shikshya Primary School).
  • Orientation and Training Conduction in Schools and Communities: Different orientation and re-orientations were conducted in schools, in slum areas of kathmandu, for different women's groups of East Nepal, and for teachers of different schools. Trainings on the use of chlorinator were conducted in Illam and Sunsari Districts, and different Rotary Club supported Schools of Lalitpur District.
  • Organized Different Awareness Programs: ECCA organized different awareness programs in schools as well as in communities (such as parents gathering in schools to disseminate knowledge about water chlorination, stall placement in communities by the students of different schools on different events and local festivals) to disseminate information on importance of chlorinator in water purification etc. Lalit Kalyan Kendra Lower Secondary School of Lalitpur organized a rally in which students displayed banners with the message of safe drinking water and the rally ended with the street drama in Patan Durbar Square, Lalitpur. Similar programs were also organized by Buddha Secondary School, Kerabari, Morang (East Nepal).
  • Survey on WATASOL User Response: Survey on WATASOL user response was done in East Nepal and also in the slum areas of the Kathmandu valley. During survey, it was found that most of the users didn't like the smell of chlorine solution the first time but after regular use they had no problem with the smell. Some users had discontinued the consumption of chlorinated water because of its smell.
  • Door-To-Door Campaign: For the promotion of safe drinking water campaign in East Nepal, ECCA mobilized two social mobilizers for Door-To-Door campaign.
  • Supporting Materials: For the ease of the promotion of safe drinking water, additional flyers and flex were printed and distributed in the schools as well as in the communities.
