Areleri village has 800 HH with Anganwadi functional under tree was recently shifted to the school store room . The Grampanchayat is building a new Anganwadi in school premises which has no toilet constructed .

Narrative

We wish to get the similar sanitation facility for all the anganwadi in this panchayat , probably when we are also expanding our projects to other panchayats of malur taluk. during our visit we often notice children have to use the school ground as toilet. thou the school has toilet for older children , which is not allowed for these children , or not maintained well.

To make the children to get used to use the toilet when still their households don't have, is a challenge for teacher and helper.we are sure to over come by our previous experience, as the toilets built in earlier centers have been regularly used by children and maintained by helpers.

    Volunteer Photographer for Malur Taluk Water Project visit w/AA Foundation

    I visited Areleri village with AA Foundation and got this unique opportunity to see the completed water and sanitation project in the angadwadi. We visited 4 villages of Malur Taluk and i was glad to have a conversation with the villagers and their issues revolving water and sanitation issues, their everyday life routine and other related issues. I am thankful for AA Foundation for taking this initiative of providing the basics to these kids of these villages and PWX for providing the necessary funding and guidance for successfully completing these projects.

    Temporarily the angadwadi was set up in a local school storage room as the angadwadi facility was under construction. The construction was almost finished. The toilets were almost complete and the water tank here was a built-in in the ground unlike the other 3 villages of Malur Taluk. The under ground concrete tank was huge and seemed very promising.

    Visitor

    The construction of the bathrooms were complete but not being used at time of visit. The bathrooms will start being used when the new building for the preschool is completed, which appeared to be almost finished. Large underground concrete rain harvesting tank is in place so no above ground rain barrels will be present.

    Meeting with Funder

    Myself and Rajesh sir had discussion on our ongoing project, related to organisation work in collaboration with PWX in 2013. which also included review and planning.
    Many suggestions was given by Rajesh in improving the process documentation ,follow up, sustainability( after aa foundation role stops , who will continue to use the existing systems created,who Will be responsible so,on) foundation to work on those line in a year's time.

    Rajesh was also keen on sharing peer group experience, and suggested to conduct training programme for new groups. this needs more clarity in how ,when and whom.
    Myself wanted to know to apply for the new community based projects based on need, which was on discussion from 2011 and now foundation is having enough experience, confidence and built rappo with the community to carry on th e projects
    Rajesh was keen in knowing the exact rainfall measurement of the kolar, specifically project area ( where we don't have accurate data, we depended on GP and zilla data, which have to be reviewed for accuracy) and community contribution, also suggested few things and asked to prepare a project proposal , which will be reviewed by the peer groups.

    The discussion also went on clarity on Sober's project review, Arghyam funding conditions, creating module projects and His US visits and project audited accounts.

    Aa foundation have to work on sustainability aspect, submitting the accounts, submission of new project proposal, improving process documentation,documenting other donors involved in the process and technical ideas to collect and preserve rainwater in a better way while implementing future projects .

    I thank for Rajesh valuble time given for the project discussion and ideas to improve our overall performance on reaching community.

  • Implementation Phase Project started on 18 Jan, 2013 Preparation Phase

Areleri village has 800 HH with Anganwadi functional under tree was recently shifted to the school store room . The Grampanchayat is building a new Anganwadi in school premises which has no toilet constructed .

Narrative

We wish to get the similar sanitation facility for all the anganwadi in this panchayat , probably when we are also expanding our projects to other panchayats of malur taluk. during our visit we often notice children have to use the school ground as toilet. thou the school has toilet for older children , which is not allowed for these children , or not maintained well.

To make the children to get used to use the toilet when still their households don't have, is a challenge for teacher and helper.we are sure to over come by our previous experience, as the toilets built in earlier centers have been regularly used by children and maintained by helpers.

Sustainability

Creating and measuring long-term impact

This is built in government institution premises to upgrade the community based programme like anganawadi, parents, community and department,personal teachers and helpers have welcomes this with other components like childfreindly wall paintings to make anganawadi as child friendly place.

Initially we had to convince, now other villages in the same panchayat wants to have similar structures.

Apart from above organisation has constant followup every week and day by field personals to train teachers on quality education , and sanitation is one component in that.

Recently organisation participated in conducting survey through panchayat under Nirmal Grameen yojana which says out of 120HH 60HH had toilets in their houses, rest use open field.
This is a panchayat office area , we can see greater number of HH having toilets, rest of villages have three toilets for 130HH.

We had community based mason , who was associated with to three projects , so he had better under standing on the quality and time ,budget, so we had less hardship to get the project completed.thou our experinced staff left the job.

This structure has molded roof, as suggested by the community,hence it is in premises of school big playground, the roof made by sheet will have breakages, so the budget also was little more than other projects for toilet.

The toilet width is 9/7ft, with two sitting Indian style commodes and water facility by the panchayat.

Still the colour,size of the sink fitted is not satisfactory.

The painting is pending, until the anganwadi new building which is coming up next have to finish. and usage will be blocked until the water tank next to the toilet have to be covered properly ,we are working on that with panchayat people

Other Issues

Unusual and unexpected issues faced during project execution

During project there was no such problem, but we often see when ever school and angawadi holidays the premises is misused by local few peoples, so we wish the new building of angawadi and toilets are not harmed.

Learnings

Knowledge of project and process for sharing

Our every step involeved discussion with local committee like SDMC member , grampanchyat members , village head and teachers and local masons, labourers,

so after consent and letter correspondence only we started the project.but we have to organize and insists every meeting and also communicate between them, other wise our works get delayed.EX:( we received permission to build toilet from DWCD, later panchayat have already started the work under MLA quota, we have to communicate the information and take supervisor to the field in chikkaupparalli village). you have to play more roles!

we insisted local mason and specially laborers from same village, so less Resistance from them and completed happily when we motivated them that they are building for their children,some laborers were parents of the children, so we had no hassels.

The components like childfriendly wall painting , planting trees and garbage cleaning village activity draws community and children attention and make them to participate.
Now the villages community is insisting to bring the painting group, we are waiting for new anganwadi structure to complete.

Impact

People Getting Sanitation: 62

There are 60 enrolled to the anganawadi center functioning in school store room at Areleri, teacher and helper. weekly three days the center can see full attendance of the children, rest of the days varies from 30-40 children in the center due to crowded and small space the children often fall sick.
