Sustainability

Creating and measuring long-term impact

The maintenance cost as per revenue model works out to $752 per year. The yearly contribution is being collected by the Water Comittee. This would be used for the maintenance and for reserve funds for the replacement of spare parts and major repairs etc. in the long run after 5-7 years.

Learnings

Knowledge of project and process for sharing

The drinking water activity has helped the village community to come together for a common cause and helped to strengthen their unity and integrity.
- the illiterate rural women are capable to implement honestly and parsimoniously large projects with big budgets by maintaining transparency if their capacities are built through training interventions and given opportunity to implement the projects.
