Description

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.

    Its hard to do good in a so called 'developing country' when you are sat behind a computer somewhere far away where everything works and poverty is not an issue, however it is not impossible! PIF allows you to take a closer and more personal look at the people you are trying to help through online communication. This makes it quite a unique platform which is run by a very motivated group of young individuals!

    Let's go against Ebola! Although the time that I thought Micheal Jackson was pretty cool is two decades ago, I must admit that he isn't so Bad at all. He didn't frighten me with his Triller album, the real frightning stuff came later on, as we all know. But it is exactly the period between the mentioned albums that he hit the charts with 'Heal the world, '. This was 100% corny stuff, but the message was clear: make it a better place! So, tho come back on this motivation issue, let's follow this Wizzard of Oss and make the world a better place. With Pifworld it is so easy! Good luck with Playing it Forward!
