Dear Shane, thank you for the constructive comments you made on my project. Just to give you an insight, urban slum floods is partly contributed by poor rain water management mechanisms by the residents. For example out of 10 households in slum areas only 1 has rain water harvesting technologies. Water that comes from the roof contributes to flooding around compounds of the residents. In our plan we would like to enable slum dwellers engage in sustainable rain water harvesting through rain water collecting systems that are cheap to access and manage by the slum dwellers. This will be installed below the roofs such that they can collect rainwater and store it in plastic installed tanks. In addition to increase access to clean water by slum dwellers, we will train and provide water purification gadgets such that the water can be used for drinking and on other households domestic use.
We want to use technology that is available in the country and can be easily managed by slum dwellers. By doing this, we will be complementing government in its efforts to control flooding and promote clean drinking water, reduce water borne diseases as well.
This is a nice idea, providing education to the refugees affected is relevant. l believe the ideas is very smart. Could you please share more on the theory of change for your project. How will the refugees benefit from the education you provide.
Hi Vestine, Thank you for the good idea. It sounds interesting to offer scholarships to the refugees to access formal education. What is your plan for sustaining the project after support from external sources has ended?. What age category are you targeting? Please could you also give more information about support of formal education to help us understand more about your idea.
