From the baseline survey carried out within the former project in three typical remote villages it was found that unfortunately not a single household uses an improved water source, and It was also found that 86% of the households do not treat their water.
This clearly shows that these communities are in need of assistance for clean water supply, which is one of the most important sources of development.
ARRAKIS is supporting a local partner: GSB, in solving the water problems (since 2008).
For $ 3000 (or € 2200), 150 people can be provided with fresh water in a remote village, by means of a hand rope pump, placed on a manual drilled well. Moreover, part of this money will be used for capacity building of users, well diggers, metal workshops to create a sustainable supply chain of WASH Technologies.
