CARMDAKSH being working in this region since Oct 2003, during its intervention it felt that water and sanitation is one of the important issue which need to be addressed. 60% of the diseases in rural area is water borne and status of water and sanitation in rural area is very poor. In our SHGs it is observed that 40% of loan taken from the SHG is for health purpose.

In this regard CARMDAKSH started its intervention in water sanitation and Hygiene (WASH)with support of wateraidto demonstrate different models to address the issues of WASH sector. Other focus in the program is Menstrual Hygiene Management (MHM) for women and adolescent girls.

Protection dug well with establishment of Hand pump
Some of the handpumps and bore wells in the villages / hamlets is contaminated by Iron. In some of these cases villagers discard the use of those handpumps and use dugwell or streams (locally known as dhondi). It is observed that water available in these dugwells/dhondi throughout the year. So considering the situation we plan to protect these kinds of dugwells from contamination and provide safe water to the community. In this regard we had protected the source and install handpump on it to avoid contamination of water. Some of the villages inPali block is water is effected by iron, which is more in Hand pump and bore well whereas dug well is not much contaminated with Iron. Some of the areashad traditional water bodies (dug well or Dhodi) which provide water throughout the year whereas Hand pump installed get dried up in summer, In those areascarmdaksh protect these kind of dug wells and establish handpump over thedug well so that community can access the qualitative and safe water throughout the year.
