Tap station with concrete slab and drainage
Rain Harvesting systems for Gakou Sub -community
Large 10000 litre community holding tanks
Pipes and connectors for the gravity fed water system
There are insufficient functioning water points for the community. These water points have no taps and no drainage, leading to the community running out of water and at increased risk of mosquito born diseases from the excessive water pooling
Gakou sub-community is located higher than the dam and cannot use the dam as a water source. This separate solution will ensure an equitable water supply.
Two large holding tanks will be used to for water storage and water disinfection to ensure constant cleaner water supply, removing the need to drink river water during the dry weeks.
A new pathway has been designed to carry water from the dam to the water taps, that optimises the use of the fall of the land. All the pipes will be buried to ensure protection from landslides and traffic damage.

Tools and Hygiene Programme $5500.
The Community requires and wants tools to maintain their water delivery system and have built a shed to store the tools. We will provide training on how to use the tools safely and how to maintain them.
We are allocating $50 per household, to be put towards water storage, water dispensary, utensil storage, menstrual hygiene products. The trained household hygiene assessors will provide guidance on the best items to get involved with. Training will be provided in all aspects.
