plan 155Promotion of Biosand Filter for Health

Summary

ANEPO AND TGGA intends to sensitize the community on safe and clean water to healthy family and also to help the community on having clean water through the use of simple technology BIOSAND FILTER which is affordable

Background

Water situation in our area is not safe and little have been done to educate the community. Many get water from shallow boreholes which are polluted causing frequent cholera cases.In some areas where ANEPO and TGGA are going to engage the water is pollute by emission of chemicals from Green houses and borehole is the only solution
So far in the areas which ANEPO and TGA are going to work on have no access to safe and clean water education programmes,
We have already issued questionnaires to the community.

Application Type: Project Funding

Start Date: 2009-02-04

Completion Date: 2009-05-10

Technology Used:

ANEPO and TGGA intends
-to educate women and girls as they are source of change in the families.
-to use simple example in the training example records from health centers, perfomance of children in schools through lack of hygiene education
-use of simple technology for water solution Biosand filter a technology which cost effective and enviromentally friendly.
HAVE BEEN PROVEN TO BE 98% EFFECTIVE IN KILLING BACTERIAS.
- in schools we intend to introduce harvesting of water
- in some areas educating the community will be the imortance of having borehole water due to pollution from Green houses

Phases:

As this fund is small it will be limited to sensitizing the community and schools only

Community Organization:

ANEPO nad TGGA have distributed questionnares which the community have tried to identified the areas which needs training and also the willingness of using the simple technology and also where a borehole MIGHT BE CONSTRUCTED IN THE FUTURE the ownership is 100% the local community in order to be sustainable.

Government Interaction:

Ancillary activities:

We will introduce reforestation activities such as having tree nurseries which are environmentally friendly.
With other collaborators from the local government we intend to make sure spring outlets are secured no cutting trees, our engaging any farming aactivities.

Other Issues:

We hope that this will motivate the government to become partners in the implematation to other areas

Maintenance Revenue:

The project will be community owned and for schools it will under the school administrtion and will be maintained through bugdets of community and schools as the community will sell filters and also water, schools will also sell tree seedlings from their nursuries

Maintenance Cost: $150

    Jan, Mariah, Annette, Melinda, Can we include the cost of constructing a mold of Tsh 2.3 -2.5 million at the rate of 1 $ @Tsh 1200/= which means we need $i916.70 for the mold. The last company just fowarded today a proforma invoice at that amount. Anna

    • Anna Anatoli of ANEPO

      Our action plan on this technology is as following after getting the mold; 1.To explain the community on the function of the BSF. 2. To test the water of the community so as to satistify the quality of water and this will make them understand why we need the BSF. 3.

    Greetings Mama Africa!

    I see where you intend to use the grant to sensitize and educate both women and girls about the importance of clean water, with a focus on the Biosand Filter. Do you plan to make a BSF in a training workshop so they can see how it is made and how it works? Do you then hope to have the participants of the training go back and make a filter for their household?

    Is the technical cost you list of 30,000Tshs the cost of producing one BSF? Have you costed out the materials you will need? Can you provide that detail as part of the $1000 grant requested?

    Are you hoping to to the school rainwater harvesting with Raincatchers? Do you have a plan in place with them, and a timeline?

    I have been assigned to help you through this review process, so feel free to contact me if you have questions, or need help.

    All the best, Jan Hartsough for Crabgrass and AWWC

    • Anna Anatoli of ANEPO

      Yes Iintend to use the grant partly to make a sample of BSFduring the training so that the practical aspect plays a major role in the training and this will help them to remember and make their own when they go back.

    Hello Mama Africa,
    Sorry your daughter( Joan) and I couldn't really review your proposal on time...But we here now. Your team's proposal seems straight forward and simple, but has several components such as; water harvesting, planting trees , hygiene and water education yet the project according to the title seeks to promote the biosand filter. Can you please explain how all these activities are related to the biosand filter.

      Thanks for concern Joan. The relationship to these activities are when you are teaching BSF it will be important to understand why we should have BSF in the community which ofcourse will be due to poor quality of water.

      In schools where water harversting will be engaged ANEPO had in mind that this water want be safe to children to drink so BSF will also be an important technology. The tree plant issues will arise as a way to raise income in schools from sale of trees this will help to make more BSF in the concerned schools.

    Hello Mama Africa,

    In your submission, you mentioned that you intend to introduce water harvesting in schools. Anna and I would like to know if your project is combining the BSF and Rain water harvesting technologies. It sure will be a good idea especially if the problem you identified in your targetted school has both water quality and quantity dimensions. We hope the costings of both technologies have been adequately considered and intergrated. Best of luck.

    Olanike and Anna

    • Anna Anatoli of ANEPO

      Hello my beautiful daughters thanks for comment. Yes we are using both technology to schools as the harvested water want be suitable for drinking, so we have to use BSF to make safe for the children.BUT the cost of harvesting is not include in the $1000 grant as the Raincatcher from Nairobi have requested separate cost.

    We are almost out of time for any changes in the proposals. If it is possible, it would be good to add in the answers you have given to the various questions asked - for instance, adding the costs of biosand filter to the budget strengthens it, So does putting in your action plan details for the biosand filter training. It's my understanding that tomorrow is the deadline for making any changes to the proposal itself. I wish you much success in implementing both the BSF and the Raincatcher harvesting system in 2009. Happy New Year! Jan Hartsough

      Jan,
      How are you?.
      I am sorry iam late but to answer your worry the costs were limited according to your strictiness in your donations/funding, but actualy the budget is too tight and especially that the construction of the biosand filter is so expensive. ANEPO have 4 qoutations of mold which are ranging from Tshs 2.3 million -2.5million. We have gone to extent of approaching a Designing Corporation the cost is still high.This is equivalent to $ 1916.70 to 2083.30.
      Can we include in our proposals?
      Thanx

      ANEPO plans to introduce harvesting of water to schools because of scarcity of water for drink , hygiene purpose as a lot of children need water before and after toilets. also ANEPO has introduce environment groups so we need water to water our nurseries.

      ANEPO is introducing rain water to schools because of scarcity of supply of water. ANEPO is also introducing harvesting of water because these schools need this service for hygiene purpose,e.g toilets and drinking.

      Absolutely you can, but I think the whole concept needs to highlight the biosand filter as key component of the project.

    While I have seen these ladies in action in their community and know that they have been making postive changes and are very capable of reaching their groups and implementing projects, I do not feel they have effectively shown in this application the thorough planning that is needed for a water project of the scale and variety they are proposing. With more time and directed planning strategies I believe they will be prepared to implement the activities outlined in their application.

    I think it would be a stronger proposal if it focused on the biosand filter, and didn't talk about other work and issues of the organization. It will be a challenge just to accomplish the first step of training people to actually make the BSF before it can be introduced to a school or a community. I believe they have the capacity and drive to bring BSF to their chosen communities.
