Sustainability

Creating and measuring long-term impact

The maintenance cost as per revenue model works out to $441 per year. The yearly contribution is being collected by the Water Committee. 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.

Other Issues

Unusual and unexpected issues faced during project execution

Due to the increase in cost of the raw material (steel, cement, sand etc) required for construction of water storage tank and well there was an increase of USD 750 for the same. This additional cost was incurred by the village community.

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 implementing agency should be clear about the non-compromisable (peoples contribution, quality of work, maintenance atleast of one year in advance) and should try to achieve these through participatory methods.
