Sustainability

Creating and measuring long-term impact

The community health promoter in the area will be holding meetings of a school club for the children twice a month. During these visits she will be able to check on the performance of the RWH system and report any problems she finds directly to the ACI office. The five USD is covered by the school according to the agreement the school and stakeholders signed prior to construction of the RWH system. This cost will cover any breakages due to poor use and silicone costs if the system begins to leak because of wear and tear on the gutter runs.
