In 2002, UNESCO established the basic human right to water, which is 60 liters/person/day. Meanwhile, to get clean water in Mbinudita, villagers spend a lot of time going to springs and wells with a distance of 1.5 to 3 km with hilly terrain. They carry jerry cans while walking, by motorbike, or using livestock power.
In Mbinudita there are few households with bathrooms or toilets. To defecate most of the residents do it by making holes in the grass or in the bushes. Sumbanese generally have their own term for this condition: tai wewar, or scattered feces. If we walk through the grass, be careful with lots of “traps” in the form of human feces.
This condition is our motivation in seeking access to clean water and healthy sanitation for villagers, so that much needed water can be obtained easily and healthy sanitation is only within reach. We also want to share knowledge and technology by transferring what we understand about harvesting rainwater, taking advantage of the blessings of nature and saving it for common needs. It is hoped that this access to clean water will slowly improve the quality of life for the Mbinudita villagers with more time to be productive.
