Summary

The goal of the project is to pump water uphill from the river using the AIDFI ram pump which is a water powered pump that pumps water 24/7 from a lower situated source such as a spring, stream or river to a higher elevation without the use of electricity or fuel, avoiding the emission of greenhouse gasses. The water will be delivered to the San Pedro Children's home for food production and cleaning activities in the orphanage and for 70 hog raisers in the village of Dulangan in Digos City.

Challenge

Dulangan village is home to the San Pedro Children's home, it has been the plan of the orphanage to start livelihood projects and produce their food but the problem is the water needed. The village is also a hog raisers community and one of the meat producers for the market of Digos City in Davao del Sur, Philippines. The 70 community members dependent on hog raising have had a hard time accessing water from the river which was is not only difficult to reach but also hard during flood hours.

Solution

AIDFI builds water systems using its ram pump model that delivers water 24/7 from a lower situated free flowing source without the use of electricity or fuel. The project will deliver 20,000 liters daily to the orphanage and village which will provide the needed water to start livelihood projects and food production at the orphanage and support the 70 hog raisers who supply meat to the local market in the city. The water system also ensures sustainable operation with low maintenance cost.

Long-Term Impact

The project will provide water for the orphanage and the village to support local meat production and the opportunity for additional water-related livelihoods for the community members and the orphanage. The low maintenance and operational cost of the ram pump water system will help keep cost of hog raising down, ensure healthy livestocks and continuous supply of meat to the market all the while avoiding additional greenhouse gas emissions. It will also ensure food security in their locality.
