Situation: A rural area in Baluchistan known as the Chagai district has water scarcity. The community living in the village often travel up to 140 Km to fetch water.
Impact: The scarcity of water is negatively affecting the health, wellbeing and livelihoods of these villagers. This has impacted on chidren’s education and the economy.
Response: This project was designed to consider the inclusion of all ages, genders and groups. With a particular focus on women, children, the elderly and people with disabilities. Separate taps were installed for women and children, washing pads for females were also constructed in safe places and separate washrooms were built for teachers and children in the targeted schools.
A total of 7 schools were provided with clean drinking water and 13 water supply schemes were rehabilitated/constructed. As a result, 5528 direct individuals have benefitted.
This project was started in 2020 and completed in 2021.
Muhammad, 38, lives in small village comprised of 20 households and a total population of 120 people. Villagers’ income is mainly from farming and the area is mostly flat desert surrounded by mountains. With this clean drinking water project, they can now have easy access to clean water.
The difference between IWF and other organisations is that IWF will invest your donations and bring a sustainable return year on year and serve people indefinitely.
