Narrative

The project is supporting Talaganda village who have already built sanitation infrastructure, to access safe piped water supply and thus, assisting them to complete their water and sanitation intervention.
Talaganda is a very small village in Ganjam district with a total population of 42 people, all families living below the poverty line. They have started building the sanitation infrastructure in April 2008 and all 8 families have completed the construction of their toilets and bathing rooms. The toilets and bathrooms were built at least 3m away from house. In order to avoid flooding of latrine pits during rainy season, the tops of the platform and the pits are 0.45-0.6m above ground level. Villagers were also encouraged to grow banana, papaya and coconout trees around toilet soak pits to leach excess water, so that the pit can be used for at least five years before it becomes full and waste must be diverted to the second pit. By the time the second pit is full, the contents of the first have been composting for at least five years and the pathogens have been killed. This compost can then be used as organic maneau. The design and layout of toilets-bathing rooms were done in consultation with the villagers. The whole sanitation infrastructure was built with full community participation and each family was involved in the whole process and thus, ensuring 100% inclusion at all times. Gram Vikas had also provided technical support and training during the course of construction.

    Chitra Chaudhuri ( Gram Vikas ) 2 Months after completion 8 Jul, 2010

    Ensured health & hygiene after the commissioning of protected piped water

    Status: Complete - Successful

    Operating Status:

    A month before the villagers had identified the water source from the hilltop that was 2.5 km far from the village. Despite of the circumstantial problems like peak agricultural season, festivity, heat & humid then monsoon, they have commissioned the piped water supply to each household. The completion of the community work is a great relief to all of the villagers as it is done before the monsoon gets frequent.

    The villagers express that unlike previous years there is no fear of diarrohea as all of them can use TBRs & protected piped water supply. Village ladies are relieved as they are of from the drudgery & children particularly can be ensured of healthy & hygienic life hence no more dropped outs.

    Chitra Chaudhuri ( Gram Vikas ) 26 Days after completion 26 May, 2010

    Villagers identified water source

    Status: In-progress

    Operating Status:

    The water source is identified at Talagande village with due cooperation of villagers & facilitation of GV. The source is 2.5km far from the village. It is a perrenial stream in the hill. Identification of source has motivated the villagers to plan out for early completion of the task. The heat & humidity is at peak & monsoon is soon to arrive. But the villagers have started digging of pipe line from the hill top.

  • Impact Assessment (M&E) Phase Project completed on 30 Apr, 2010 Implementation Phase
    Chitra Chaudhuri ( Gram Vikas ) 6 Months after start 19 Apr, 2010

    Work in progress

    Status: In-progress

    Operating Status:

    Talaganda village consists of 8 HHs only. All of them are under BPL category & Scheduled Tribes.They have completed the TBRs construction but the water source identification is time taken. The village is a far flung area. It has poor infrastructural & institutional facilities. Being situated at difficult terrain the process is time consuming.

    However GV personnel are giving their best to address these & facilitating villagers in completion of the task.
