Group 4 family water project

  1. 1. Family Water Project A Community Cooperative Program Jonathan Davitte Roshan Patel Laurel Lloyd Sara Sweeney 1 Sally Dover
  2. 2. Current Resources and Interventions Nutrition inpatient clinics 1 RTUF supplementation 1 Increased food productivity initiative 2 School meals 2 2
  3. 3. Water in Ethiopia 41.2% of families have access to safe water 3 Travel long distances to collect water 4 Drought Current projects for pipe and pump systems 5 3
  4. 4. Linking Water to Nutrition 4
  5. 5. The Solution: Water Co-Op Providing Hippo rollers to 21,000 families to provide clean drinking water to an estimated 168,000 people over 5 years Monthly dues of 25 cents (US) per family generates over $5,000 monthly co-op income 5See Appendix for Target Population Calculation
  6. 6. The Solution: Water Co-Op Primary Intervention: share in Hippo roller and monitoring by local coordinator Identification of acute malnutrition Linking to treatment services Education about basic hygiene and water practices Profit-based Intervention: community water infrastructure development (cisterns) Long-term Intervention: capacity- building Community linkages to health care facilities and other organizations 6
  7. 7. Benefits of Water Co-Op Clean filtered water, can be stored Reduced incidence of diarrheal disease Opportunity for improved hygiene practices Women-centered approach, encompasses entire families Less time away from home, child care Increased business opportunities for income-generating activities Culturally acceptable way to address a universal need Community empowerment/ownership 7
  8. 8. Implementation Staggered recruitment of communities over 3 years Collaboration with key community stakeholders Phase 3 Community members recruit women (families) Phase 2 Reinvestment of monthly profits into Phase 1 community water infrastructure development 8
  9. 9. Budget Expenditure Over 5 Years 7,000 Rollers at $100 Each 9 = $700,000 Program management staff = $150,000 Facilities, maintenance, and transportation = $150,000 9
  10. 10. Conclusion Nutritional interventions alone cannot reduce burden of acute severe malnutrition. Improved access to and transportation of clean water can indirectly reduce malnutrition. Family Water Project provides: A sustainable system for improving access to and facilitating transportation of clean water Identification of malnourishment cases and referral to already existing services Improvement of community water storage through profit cistern development allocation Direct improvements to health, agriculture, and economic potential of entire families instead of only malnourished children 10
