Challenge

each person in Bala only uses about 4.7 gallons of water per day, which is still below the recommended amount by the World Health Organization: 5.3 gallons per person per day. To give a better idea, the average American uses approximately 80-100 gallons per day. Water collection can take upwards of 2 hours per day for each household. the average water functionality in the project area is 54%. as many as 420 water points are considered abandoned , having been non functional for 5 or more years.

Solution

We will train and help rural families make and maintain their own household water wells by hand with local materials. furthermore the project will train 200 youth as hand pump mechanics and spring well mansions to help rehabilitate the abandoned water sources and improve on the functionality rate. Village saving and loan schemes will be introduced to all water points and this will provide sustainability mechanism in-terms of finance when water source breaks down.
