    Interesting Project - thanks

    Ned Breslin of Water for People

    Thanks for the overview of your project. I have a few questions: 1. what is the storage capacity of the system? 2. is there enough water for the school all year? If no, what additional water will be procured? 3. why is sanitation not considered as part of the project? 4. How will the school pay for repairs? Thanks Ned

    Hi, I'm curious about whether you plan engagement with the government during or after implementation - in particular the Ministries of Education and Water. Are there plans to scale this project to other schools or is this community unique in its ability to support the project? What is the incentive for community members to contribute labor, funds and/or maintenance to the project? I'm also curious about how the fees were set?
    Thanks!

      we have undertaken such a project in other communities already. We will continue to do that by applying at peerwater as well as at unicef for such projects.

      they have an inner motivation because they are in dire need of this assistance. The water situation in Sierra Leone for lots of people is pretty bad...

      the project negotiated with the community to reach at the fees described in the proposal (500 Leone per term for students, 100 Leone per bucket for everybody else) the result of the negotiation is what the community can pay and what we know the project needs to maintain the system.

    Needs to elaborate on the community organization and address why the existing wells will not be repaired.

    Pretty vague proposal and not clear how the system will be sustained by the school over time. A Mark II requires some good skills and some finance, but details on this are lacking. I am also wondering if the system will be sufficient to meet school water needs. If not, where will the additional water come from?

    Thanks

    Other project applications seem to provide more detail and background. This application might benefit by putting the program in context - why work through the school rather than the community, for example?
