Fig 1. One of the alternative sources of water (a pond) for domestic use (drinking and other uses)
Being known that water is a basic natural resource, which sustains life. In its natural state, water is an integral part of the environment whose quantity and quality determine how it can be used. Safe drinking water and good sanitation practices are basic considerations for human health.
Fig 2. A farmer collecting drinking water from traditional water well having un healthy water (see its color).
The use of contaminated sources poses health risks to the population as evidenced by the incidences of water borne diseases such as diarrhea and cholera.
Despite its importance to our lives and development. water is unevenly distributed in time, space, quantity and with great variations in quality. Furthermore, water is a finite and a vulnerable resource.
Actual situation of water problem
Lack of access to safe water and of appropriate secure sanitation facilities has a direct impact on the community members. Fetching water and caring for sick people have traditionally been tasks of women and rarely men do participate. By having these wells, the workload of women will be reduced and their productivity will increase.
Inaccessibility to potable water is considered as one of the poverty indicators. WHO reported in 2009 that Tanzania loses the equivalent of 1 million life years in productivity every year due to water, sanitation and hygiene related diseases, Diarrheal related illnesses are the leading causes for treatment in health facilities.
Most of the rural population depends on public water points and unprotected shallow wells. Lack of adequate knowledge about preventive measures and poor hygiene and sanitation increases mortality and reduces household income
Fig 3. One of the current major water sources for the communities in three villages. Such water wells are source of ware for domestic use (drinking and other uses). See the cover of the well that doesn’t guarantee water safety.
repairing wells for rural community water supply can be one of the most efficient ways to bring clean, safe water to the community. Villagers can identify old broken-down wells, but due to financial constraints are not able to rehabilitate them. They can assess the costs of repairing or replacing it. Often times, it’s relatively easy to simply replace or even re-case the hole.
Fig 4. The Vision of the project is to see communities in these villages be uplifted through this project the burden of having unsafe water.
The project aims to uplift the rural communities to improve their lives, so, by starting with their primary needs such as water a one of the steps towards sustainable and health livelihood. The project is expected to rehabilitate three major water wells saving more than 2,772 families.
Hence, the Project aims to increase access to safe drinking water, this way will contribute to a reduction of the child mortality. This will help to reduce the health costs encountered by communities in these three villages.
