Background

Experience relating to the project:
PADI has been implementing this kind of water project for more than four years, beginning in 2003. The first implementation of the project was done in the Mletele ward at Liwumbu B streets from June to August 2003, where seven (7) improved traditional water wells were built. PADI received funds from Peace Corps Tanzania under the supervision of Mr. Tim Hogan.

The second implementation of the project took place from September to November 2003, where PADI received funds from professors Miller and Rulfs of the USA and constructed 4 improved traditional water wells.

The third project implementation took place from October 2005 to December 2005, funded by Help Age International, which enabled PADI to build 8 improved traditional water wells.

The fourth implementation took place from July –August 2007.The project funded by Run For Africa, the funding enabled us to construct 13 improved traditional water wells and 1 bore hole.

The fifty project implementation took place from Nov. 2007 to January 2008, funded by Help Age International, which enabled PADI to build 7 improved traditional water wells in Mshangano ward , in total over 6200 people are benefiting from the project.

Focus

Primary Focus: Drinking Water - Community
Secondary Focus: Drinking Water - Schools

People Getting Safe Drinking Water: 6,200

There are over 6200 (where 3300 are women and 2900 men) people accessing safe and clean water in the project area where PADI has constructed 39 improved local water wells and 1 bore hole which include three wards ( Mshangano , Matogoro and Mletele wards) financed by Run For Africa, Help Age International and Peace Corps

School Children Getting Water: 1,500

1500 of school children are getting water which include Chandarua and Liwumbu primary schools where each received one Improved well while Mdandamo secondary school got one borehole last year financed by Run for Africa and Peace Corps.

People Getting Sanitation: 6,200

There are over 6200 (where 3300 are women and 2900 men) people getting sanitation by using safe and clean water they have been supported. They are using this because is clean and safe comparing to the water they were using before which was dirty ( over 1500 are children)..

People Getting Other Benefits: 3,500

Over 3500 (where 2000 are women and 1500 are men)of other people are getting other benefits including vegetable production, building construction one of those benefiting from this is Mdandamo Secondary school where after being supported with one bore hole they managed to start growing vegetables and increased school building because water availability near the school compound is possible, the same work was impossible before the bore hole and if they did the work was not effective.

Application Type: Program Funding

Start Date: 2008-10-11

Completion Date: 2008-12-15

Technology Used:

The technology to be used in the project is “Drilling water hand Pump”

Phases:

The project  will be done in one phase  

Community Organization:

We have been agreed with each school community to build pump house soon after the installation of the pump at their own costs, at the same time the same community will have to formulate Water Maintenance Fund ( WMF) to sustain the pump. Also during the project implementation the community will organize a team of 10 people who will be supporting the project implementation at the same times they will be monitoring the project progress to see if the materials budgeted are being used as required and the required quality is observed.

Government Interaction:

Ancillary activities:

The project plan to contact one day training session on care, maintenance and repair of the wells to 2 people from each well . This will really help them to care and conduct miner maintenance and repair of the well without waiting until the wells is completely destroyed and it has been found to work well in the former wells.

Other Issues:

Maintenance Revenue:

To make the wells well maintained it has been planed that the school community will make contribution to the WATER MAINTANANCE FUND ( WMF) ACCOUNT at the rate of USD 139.13 for each hand pump per year which will help to do miner repairs. The contribution rate per year will be increasing as it will be deemed necessary depending on the running costs per year. At the present Mdandamo secondary school apart of school fees the students are always requested to contribute Tsh.2000 which is equivalent to USD. 1.73 per year to support hand pump maintenance.

Maintenance Cost: $417

    Beneficiary numbers

    Rajesh Shah of Blue Planet Network

    Please explain the numbers: we would like to see the numbers that going to be impacted by this proposal. Reading the text, it appears that the numbers refer to the people already helped by earlier projects (39 wells and a borewell) or one could read it as the total population. Also, the numbers are the same in both applications.

      In mobilizing the community PADI always conduct meetings to those villages and schools requested water support. During the meeting we always explain how the project will be conducted and other project conditions which include:
      i) For safe water to schools if their request is to have hand pump-the school community are required to construct pump house as their contribution , form Water Maintenance Fund ( WMF) and Wells Monitoring Committees (WMC) which consist of 10 people per well. When all these have been agreed they always sign a contract of receiving the support( contribution for this range from 10-20% or more ).
      ii) For Improved Traditional water wells the community will only be eligible to get the support if they will be able to agree the following:
      • They agree to collect sand and stones, clearing the site, digging the well, supporting the well technician as their contribution to the project
      • They agree to formulate Well Monitoring Committee (WMC) and Water Maintenances Fund(WMF) in each village and finally sign the contract for being supported.(Contribution from the community for
      this range between 30-45%) .

      Impact of our services
      1.Mdandamo Secondary School is among the beneficiaries of the project . Before the support students from Mdandamo had to move about 1.km to 2 km far away from the school fetching some water. The students wasted a lot of time for fetching water for a variety of uses including cleanliness, cooking and school buildings construction. They missed many lessons because of water problem. It was not easy to grow neither vegetable nor flowers as it was not easy to access to water for such activities.

      After receiving the support the school has developed vegetable garden and has planted flowers around the school campus. The projects have developed for the purpose of increasing school income through produce selling and nutrition by eating the vegetable as part of their meals. Flowers will help to beautify the school environment. From July 2007 to August 2007 the school has managed to cultivate 30 seed beds with Chinese cabbages . They expect to increase 20 seed beds for the same purpose. The project is expected to harvest more than 2500 kilograms valuing Tshs 750,000= after 6 months from now. In his own words the headmaster( Mr. Fracis Kyando) had the following to say:
      “The bore hole you have given us has enabled our school to start vegetable production which will help us to save some of the money that we used to buy vegetables from business people which had been costing us a lot of money. At the same times, time wastage has minimised by 98%.We really appreciate the support. We hope it will resolve some of the health issues that we have been facing at our school.”

      2.Mrs Azizi Aly (70years old) a widow living at Luhira in Mletele ward is among of more than 600 villagers who have benefited from the project. She had the following comments:
      “ As we are living far away from the town centre, we had no dreams to get such services now. I am over 70 years now. It is for my first time to use water from the improved sources like this, for all 70 years we have been using local dug wells which are open and offer free access to dogs, pigs, mosquito and human activities like clothes washing and bathing. It is even worse during the rainy season when some of the wells become dirtied soil due to run off water from hills to the streams. Your support has helped to restrict some of the dangers that we used to face. Thanks very much. We are very happy that our health will be improved.”

      Even after the construction of 39 improved Traditional water wells in nine village, and ( 1 bore hole in Mdandamo Secondary school the need to expand the project to other areas villages and schools is greater more than 10 requests from secondary schools and villages within the district and outside the region have been received at our office requesting to be given the same support.( see the attached file in the other doc.)

    It will be good if you can have a proper survey of the number of pupils that will benefit from each school to have realistic a figure. Are there school management committees in each of the schools? If so are they part of the water maintenance management fund committees?

      Dear Ned Breslin
      At the moment we have not a plan concentrating in health and hygiene education and other community outreach activities except after training them to care the well surrounding environment.
      •To avoid washing, bathing , cultivating or doing any sort of human activities including cultivation of the upstream land to avoid deforestations and water contamination.
      • Also we teach them to practice a forestation around the well areas to avoid water source dry up. We think your observation is good for us to consider this and concentrate on it.

    Water programs in schools really should include hygiene education. It is a low cost high impact intervention.

    It is a very good project and i believe if the implemetaion strategy is followed the sustainance of the project is also ensured.

    Without a coherent and complete presentation of the project, it is difficult to assess, although the need is apparent.

    Water and sanitation projects in schools are a clear and important investment in the future. The pairing of these two elements is key in changing habits of children and future parents.

    There is no active health element in this proposal , but I have witnessed on many occassions that children instictively are drawn to a water source and activte whatever hygiene practices they have learned. Simply hydrating the body properly is sufficient to ward off many illnesses and deal with eye problems due to dust, sunlight, and smoke by lubricating the eye. I suspect these will be benefits of such a project.

    This project would be greatly improved if PWX would extend funding for hygiene education along with the water supply.

    This is a nice project, but needs to be presented more holiticially and with better attention to all the issues.

    It will be hard for BPR to fund the entire project. Depending on funding remaining, it might be possible (and better) to fund one of the wells and keep the other 2 for later (if that is possible to do at the implementer level).

    I believe that the experience to roll out projects is there. I would like to see if there is a way to strengthen this orgs capacity to write effective grant proposals.
