plan 186Oywa community rainwater harvesting,testing,WASH and pasteurisation project.

Summary

Oywa "A" solar support group proposes to install five plastic tanks and conducting trainings on rain water catchment, WASH and water testing, solar pasteurization within five location covered by the project.

Background

The project is needed urgently because the community experiences extreme floods and drought conditions. During rainy seasons, alot of water goes into waste due to lack of appropriate rain water harvesting systems and during drought, there's no clean safe water near by.
The group received first funding of US$ 1000 from a Single Drop and constructed the first water tank in July 2008.

Location

katito,Kisumu,Nairobi, Nyakach,Nyanza, Kenya

Capacity building - 15
PML Water testing-851

Application Type: Project Funding

Start Date: 2009-05-01

Completion Date: 2009-11-01

Technology Used:

We Intend to:-
-Install a plastic tank per location - they are durable and last longest.
-Train community on rain water harvesting systems, sanitation, hygiene and water testing & pasteurization within 5 locations covered by the project.
-Solar cooking and PML water testing.

Phases:

Yes.

Community Organization:

We have:-
-Mobilized and sensitized the community on rain importance.
-trained members on construction and maintenance of the plastic tanks.
-made plans on air this publicly on the Chief Barazzas,Churches.

Government Interaction:

Yes.
We've contacted the ministry of Health and water under the provincial administration.

Ancillary activities:

Capacity building will be done to 15 group members who will then train other group on maintenance of the water tanks.

Other Issues:

Water has to be sourced from far off rivers and dams which are not safe for human consumption. Plenty of clean water can therefore be stored through this project which will be piped for use in times of water scarcity.
Inn this community, Women and girls have a burden of fetching water from far of areas for their households. This project will offer water in near areas in turn saving much time needed to do some constructive duties.

Maintenance Revenue:

Members plan to sell the water on the lower side at 2/= as opposed to 5/= per 20Ltr jerrycan to generate income for the maintenance of tanks, as the tank can hold up 50,000Ltrs of water per year.

Maintenance Cost: $63

Metrics:

Prior art before metrics

Cost: $6,959

See attached.

Co Funding Amount: $1,532

SOLAR COOKERS INTERNATIONAL (SCI): The support given us is in form of Materials and technical support.

Community Contribution Amount: $425

In kind ; Unskilled labour

Fund Requested: $5,002

      2. The group has been engaged in solar cooking and water pasteurization since 2003 when Solar Cookers International introduced its activities to the community in Nyakach Constituency, Nyando District in Kenya. Since them the group has reached about 40,000 people and disseminated 2000 solar cookers to the community. The membership has grown from 5 to 15. It was among the first groups to get the initial funding of 1000 US $ from A Single Drop to install the first water tank and to train the community of Gem Rae location on rain water harvesting, WASH and water testing using the Portable Microbiology Lab (PML).
      The group operates in a flood prone area which is normally characterized by drought conditions that follow immediately after the floods.

    Hi jesca and seline

    Great job on the proposal! We're glad to see you partiipating in the peer water review.

    I have a few questions:

    1) how many locations are you planning to install the roof catchments and tanks?

    2) how many people will have access to the water? Will it be in households or schols or other places?

    3) will people sell the water? If so ho much? And who willl benefit from the profits?

    4) how will you educate the people to treat their rainwater?

    5) how often does it rain in your area? During the dry season, what other water source will you use?

    Thanks for answering these questions! I look forward to hearing from you!
