Challenge

Imagine 600 people sharing two hand pumps. In rural Aynipaati, India, this is a reality. The only overhead tank, served by a protected, piped water supply, is undependable & insufficient. Grey, stagnant water collects around it, creating a breeding ground for mosquitoes & water-related diseases. Villagers use polluted river water for bathing & washing clothes. With no latrines, open defecation is routinely practiced & cholera, dysentery & polio are common during seasonal periods.

Solution

Project activities are renovation of the existing water-pumps & drainage system, & build household & school latrines, community participation, health & sanitation education, training in financial management, & water source protection.

Long-Term Impact

600 people will have access to safe & adequate water & latrines. A local water committee will be elected to oversee upkeep & maintenance of water system and will hire local technicians to operate & maintain the system.
