Providing drinking water to the community of Narlewadi. We have implemented a water system allowing the village access to a safe water supply.

Narrative

A well was constructed, followed by the installation of pipeline and motor (5HP). The water storage tank was repaired. Three stand posts were constructed, along with a separate water connection to the school.

The village now gets access to drinking water throughout the year. The watershed treatments has been completed and thus resulted to increase the under ground water level.

Sustainability

Creating and measuring long-term impact

This project has been implemented by the Women's Pani Samiti. This hamlet comes under the group GP. The Pani Samiti is being treated as the sub committee of the GP and is responsible for the management of project and to ensure water distribution to all families.

The project is handed to the GP and is responsible for the collection of the water tax and repairs and maintenance when need arises.

Learnings

Knowledge of project and process for sharing

Remote and interior hamlets such as Narlewadi are often neglected and the benefits of the govt schemes are not received by the poor and the needy communities. They deserve the external support like BPR to provide the very basic and the most important need of safe drinking water.
