Increase resilience in communities with limited access to fresh water for domestic use, by enhancing rainwater harvesting facilities, capacity and infrastructure, whilst ensuring best basic hygiene & sanitation practices.
Limited natural water catchment, unpredictable rainfall & dry spells mean villages rely on a number of different water sources- seasonal wells, boreholes & rainwater. Water shortages are not uncommon, especially during the 6-month dry season from May-October.
Rainwater collection is a safe & reliable way to source drinking water. Without sufficient collection capacity, long-term water management plans, system upkeep, filtration & a system of water reserves, villages become particularly vulnerable to severe dry spells. Funding Rainwater Harvesting Systems & awareness programs, rainwater can be utilized as a long-term solution to water shortages. Better sanitation & hygiene will be reinforced with workshops, education & investing in infrastructure.
