Water Supply For Children and Their Families

by Association of Locally Empowered Youth - Northern Mindanao
Water Supply For Children and Their Families

Summary

Children and women often fetch water from a spring or creek very far from their houses. This is very tiring and burdensome for them and use their energy and strength not to productive purposes like doing livelihood activities or tending to their crops or helping in pasturing small animals like goats, pigs and chicken. Meanwhile rainwater which is plentiful here is not stored and only wasted because they lack containers for storage.

Challenge

Water is becoming difficult to gather in the mountain areas perhaps because of climate change and loss of underground water. Sources of water such as creeks and springs are located very far, 2-3 kilometers walk and this is very burdensome for children and women who are tasked to fetch water. Meanwhile water is plentiful and all it needs are storage containers where they can be stored.

Solution

We will provide clean, sanitary storage containers to 2,000 very poor women and children and their families in order to harvest rainwater and relieve them from the burdensome drudgery of fetching water from far away. The storage containers will be food grade sanitary plastic of up to 200 liters in capacity.

Long-Term Impact

Improvement in the health, hygiene and living conditions of very poor women and children and freeing them from the burden of fetching water from very far sources. Improvement also of their communities as they are able to use the time and energy fetching water to other activities like play and doing livelihood.
