    Farida Bibi ( Project Well ) 8 Months after completion 13 Mar, 2012

    Operating Status:

    There is no water in this well due to clogging of the 10" diameter pipe. After construction some pipes do get clogged with sand that needs cleaning by pouring water into the bore with the use of pump. This process is done by the group that does boring by erecting the bamboo scaffold. Similar clogging issue prevails at 5-6 other newly constructed bore-dugwells. Lessons learned: definitely require a set of laborers who would do only cleaning since the boring group is not available always. The delay of construction also caused by depending on the same group of diggers, borers and masons. It is hard to believe that people do not want to work as mason in West Bengal.

Creating and measuring long-term impact

Implementer: Project Well & Aqua Welfare Society

Aqua Welfare Society (AWS) is the partner NGO of Project Well. Their office is based in North 24 Parganas. The seven honorary board members are located in Kolkata. New field workers have been engaged mainly for the surveillance program. There is one project manager, one technical manager, one awareness program manager, two technical assistants, one maintenance assistant, one assistant for data entry, one account assistant and three field workers; three more field workers will be hired. All field staff are constantly interacting with the villagers and beneficiaries, training the users on well maintenance, organizing village meetings and health meetings. The project manager visits the villages three to four times a week and works alongside the field workers, meeting with government officials and villagers, selecting sites, coordinating well construction, sending reports to Project Well and meeting with the members AWS to keep the projects running. The awareness programmer is in charge of conducting public education programs in the communities and educational institutions, which is the other component that makes our program sustainable.
