Learnings

Knowledge of project and process for sharing

31st December: Boring is complete. Tried to do digging at this site but due to the water table being still high digging is postponed that will be done in the second week of January 2012.
_____________________________________

Due to cancellation of sites at Swarupnagar, Bashirhat and Baduria new sites were selected following the selection procedure of village meetings and geocoding that delayed in construction and only boring could be done at some sites. Followed by the heavy monsoon rain since end of July to present there was further delay. The monsoon rain will continue till end of October and hoping to complete the project in November 2011.

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.
