Dear Leah, I find this idea very interesting. We have had similar interventions in Oxfam Malawi and they work. I just wonder if your target areas have available ground water considering that they are highlands and also how you aim to address sustainability issues.
Thanks Shikha, The reasons for the target districts is because; ground water is available, the communalities had already shown interest to invest in their own self water supply and their is 50% youth available who have also shown interest to WASH entrepreneurship. There might be typo errors and we will address it.
The idea looks great but my worry is sustainability of these water sources. The project would have build it sustainability issues like linkages to private sector or training local artisans to be repairing the wells.
