Problem statement

2,000 children of the Gunjur Upper Basic school have no access to fresh water. The available water comes from an almost dry well and has been laying still for a long time. This water is unfit for usage, and is a risk to the children's health.

Goal

To supply the children of the Gunjur Upper Basic school acces to clean and fresh water.

Main activities

1) Dig a borehole (50 m deep); 2) Set up a steel construction approximately 5 meters high with a platform to hold the water container; 3) Place a 2,000 liter container on the platform; 4) Place a pump-system which runs on solar panels and connect all the pipelines.

External risks

There are no risks to this project, the construction will be built by a certified company. The only problem could be that too many village people take water out of the system, which could lead to shortage of water.
