Through technology, there are many simple solutions to very complex problems. It’s as simple as using gravity to move water from a high place to a lower place. Or the manufacture of water tanks that require only a few materials and are flexible as needed. These two basic things are what we put forward in working on #WaterConnection #Mbinudita, bringing a simple solution but not affordable, let alone imagined by villagers.

By determining the highest point on the hill near the school, we removed the fiber reservoir that was previously there and served as the main reservoir reservoir. From the hill, using gravity through a pipe, water will flow to visit the houses of the villagers of Mbinudita.

Another simple solution is a ferrocement tank. This tank can be made according to the needs and land area, with a gravel foundation and iron frame and the walls around it are reinforced with wire and only use plywood as a mold to form a tube. This tank also functions as a filtered rainwater harvester whose water can be directly drunk in addition to meeting daily household needs. One water tank with a capacity of 5,787 liters will be able to meet the needs of six households for a week. In addition, this ferrocement technique can also be used to build MCK to make it stronger and more durable and easy to maintain.

Simple technologies like that are what we apply to bring closer access to clean water and healthy sanitation for villagers. Clean water that used to be expensive and luxurious is now just within reach. The expected impact is the formation of good habits that start with water which is good for the body. Such as bathing every day, defecating in its place, and the ability to grow fresh vegetables that can be picked from their own yard because of the availability of water for watering. In the end, health problems due to water scarcity that are commonly encountered in #Sumba people in general will be overcome little by little through simple technology that can be replicated in other places.
