Imagine a community of 900 people sharing one hand pump. This is the reality in the rural community of Keelakarthigaipatti. There is an overhead tank served by a piped water supply from the local government, but it is unreliable – often failing for days or months at a time - and unsafe. The villagers must use irrigation canal water for bathing and washing clothes. With no latrines, open defecation is routinely practiced. Cholera, dysentery, and typhoid are common during seasonal periods.
The project includes construction of hand pumps and drainage facilities; school sanitary complex; household latrines; and demonstration of rainwater harvesting structure.
900 people will receive access to safe and adequate water; provide access to sanitation, while training the community to maintain its improved water supply and sanitation facilities through community participation
