Water oh water

Water as a vital necessity for human life.

in fact in most of the world population does not / has not enjoyed the clean water and have to fight extra hard to get the water day after day. The water ought to be close to or even in residential areas. But when the population gets higher, the water becomes increasingly scarce. So the road that we have taken is to bring the water as close to the residential area, with a underground run pipes or transporting by water tanker truck. So residents can be freely take water on a particular occasion, then we put the water tank reservoir with working hours starting at 6 am to 6 pm, for example.

We also build a unified place for the purpose of bathing, washing dishes, washing clothes and clean latrines, so residents simply take water for drinking and cooking.

In connection with the high cost of electricity and gas and kerosene for cooking water, then less and save energy for the housewives, by buying a ready to drink clean water. it will be built as well as water depot.

How would you describe the stage of development of your idea?

  • Piloting completed

How big or scalable is the potential of your idea?

The target to be achieved is a small city with a population of about 50,000 people. And because we have a water tank truck, then after filling the tank will continue to the village around at the time that has been agreed with local residents. The targeted country is Indonesia. Total fees required including the purchase of trucks, build a shower in the springs, the installation of storage tanks reservoir and build an integrated building for bathing, washing and clean latrines is around US $ 20.000 to 25.000,-(because the foreign currency change).

Explain the sustainability aspect of your idea

Water is a vital need for a much-needed day by day. Every day people need water, therefore the business in this field continues over human life on earth. Buildings built is durable and not easily damaged, repair element is the water tank needs to be treated carefully. The manpower required only 5 people at most. 2 truckers, 1 cleanliness, 2 on-site water storage.

What types of financing would be required for your idea to be successful?

If it manages to be a winner, it's going to use the money from the prize, but because this project is for vital needs, then all your suggestions will be taken into consideration for the financing of mine

In-country experience

  • Yes, for two or more years

If you have been operating in India, what has been your focus?

No, I am not in India. I'm in Indonesia. But as a social worker, I am willing also to carry out in India. It's a great challenge, and I want to participate to humanity everywhere.

Thanks Jenny Adaobi,

It is supposed to be for purposes that are needed we must be willing to sacrifice, the exclusion of which is not a necessity
