Water, Sanitation & Hygiene
An uninterrupted supply of clean drinking water is needed for the villagers of Seenipura in Kantale at a cost of Rs. 1,800,000/-.
Seenipura in the Kantale DS division is located in the Trincomalee District. Seenipura is home to 105 families. Sinhalese and Muslims coexist in harmony The residents are mainly dairy farmers and daily wage laborers. People in the area struggle daily with no access to clean drinking water. Thus, they are forced to make a multikilometers trek to collect water from a nearby village or purchase water for their drinking and other needs. They currently have a 5 foot well which has to be deepened. They also have a tube well in the premises of the local temple that is contaminated. This will be the source for the RO plant. The local school has a student population of 250 and the local Sunday school has a student population of 175. People from the village have requested Gammadda to install an R.O plant to ensure a consistent clean drinking water supply. There are two potential locations for the well which are the local school and temple. This will not only benefit the 111 families who live in Seenipura but also the future staff of the planned sugar factory and their families.
Installation of an RO Plant in the village of Seenipura using the tube well as a water source. Install a Water Filling Station situated in a common location which will provide the residents of Seenipura and neighboring villages have access to clean drinking water free of harmful pollutants. Further, will reduced incidence rate of water borne illnesses in resident population. Moreover, we will introduce a preventive and periodic maintenance plan to ensure project longevity by forming a Gammadda Saviya.
