Challenge

Communities in Bambui suffer water crisis and do fetch drinking water from polluted streams running through grazing areas. There is high incidence of water borne diseases such as typhoid, cholera, diarrhoea and resulting high children's mortality. In this situation the general health, hygiene and sanitation of the communities only worsens and further exacerbates the already extreme poverty levels. Since water, a basic need and human right, is critical for human survival and development.

Solution

BAPESU will provide the best solution through the acquisition and construction of Pumpmakers (PM) Life stations. The PM Life Station is a maintenance-free Solar Well Pumping Station especially designed for the water supply in remote areas. The innovation of the system is - the combination of delivering water by using renewable sun energy - by using a maintenance free pump system and pumping water free. With this system, it will ensure sufficient and constant water supply to the communities.

Long-Term Impact

- 6000 inhabitants and more will have access to clean drinking water (- Improved access to clean water) - There will be a change in attitude with increase consciousness of population on ways of prevention of water borne diseases. - There will be general health improvement and wellbeing of beneficiaries (with expectant drop in the incidence of waterborne diseases). - Increased knowledge of water access and basic sanitation practices - Increased knowledge about basic hygiene practices
