To collect rainwater, a water reservoir with a capacity of approximately 5000 liters was built using the ferrocement technique. The reservoir is made from cement as the main raw material, with a concrete steel frame and tubular twisted wire. At the end of September 2022, the number of reservoirs that had been built was 7 units. The other units are already in the work schedule and will be built soon.
When the rainy season arrives, the reservoirs actively harvest rainwater, filled from the roofs
house connected directly to the reservoir.
Within 1-2 rainy days, it was reported that 2 units of reservoirs were filled to the brim and the residents could already use them. When the drilled wells have been built, the reservoirs that have been built can be connected to pipes and have water flowing from the wells.
When access to clean water is closer to home, it reduces energy, time, and costs for walking long distances for 2-3 jerry cans of water that must be brought to the house every morning and evening.
When water is near, they have more time to do other activities, such as gardening or taking care of children and household needs.
Now, with the availability of water close to the house, it has been seen that in several villages they have started to create nutrition gardens that provide vegetables or food ingredients at home.
