Conclusion of Acul des Pins Ferro-Cement Tank Project – Haiti

Conclusion of Acul des Pins Ferro-Cement Tank Project – HaitiThis project has been completed under the direction of Rafael Cruz, President of La Alianza Viva Caribe. This organization has a long history of working in collaboration with the Peace Corps in the Dominican Republic.

The project resulted in the construction of a ferro-cement tank and a rainwater catchment system. In addition, an effective team was trained to be able to continue to construct tanks in Haiti.

Rafael reports:

This project is the start of a great dream to bring clean water to Haiti, one of the poorest countries in the world. It involves the construction of a ferro-cement tank in Haiti with the generous support of Water Charity.

The size of the tank is 12,000 liters, and it has been constructed in the community of Grandsaban, in the municipality of Acul des Pins.

The community of Grandsaban has a growth rate of 10 to 12 children per family. 15% of the children die before the age of five. 80% cannot read or write. Only 10% have finished primary education, 5% secondary education, and less than 3% university education. There is only one medical doctor for 32,000 inhabitants. 99% of the families do not have potable water.

Conclusion of Acul des Pins Ferro-Cement Tank Project – HaitiThe community has a population of about 5,000 people. The lack of water is dramatic, water being carried by children who walk long distances to recover a day’s supply for the family, often from contaminated sources.

Under the Ferro-Cement Tanks for the Dominican Republic and Haiti Program the Peace Corps trained three counterpart Haitians in the Dominican Republic in the ferro-cement tank technology. These consisted of a Haitian Ambiorix, a Dominican technician, Félix Mangete , and an engineer, Juan Peralta. After training, they traveled to Haiti to build the first tank in the municipality of Acul des Pains.

The general coordinator of the project in Haiti was Jhonny Genord Clervil, who coordinated with the leader of the community and the Mayor, Dejan Pierre. These leaders formed a committee of 10 persons who were responsible for the execution of the project. The community provided 20 volunteers who offered their services each day and received food for their support.

I traveled three times to Haiti, organizing the work for carrying out the project, and collaborating with Associate Peace Corps Director for the Dominican Republic Tim McFarren.

Water Charity project funds were used to buy materials, including welding materials, metal screen, cement, sand, gravel, wire, aluminum covers, laminated plywood, canvas, paint and fittings.

The actual construction of the tank took five days to complete, and now serves to effectively provide water for the community.

We extend our thanks to Rafael for completing this groundbreaking and monumental project, to Tim McFarren and the Peace Corps Volunteers of the Dominican Republic, and the entire crew that worked diligently to make it possible.

We again thank The Soneva SLOW LIFE Trust for providing matching funds this project.

Conclusion of 52 Pumps in 52 Weeks – Senegal – Project 6 - Saare Asset

Conclusion of 52 Pumps in 52 Weeks – Senegal – Project 6 - Saare AssetThis project has been completed under the direction of Peace Corps Volunteers Marcie Todd and Garrison Harward. To read about the beginning of the project, CLICK HERE.

Marcie reports:

The rope pump in the community garden at Saare Asset was the easiest installation team Kolda has seen yet. We got a free ride out to Asset from Caritas, a Catholic ONG that does work in many Koldan villages, and when we arrived there were already people in the garden ready to help with the install. We mounted the pump, glued the pipes together, threaded the rope through the PVC and had our first round of tea.

Ataya is a super sugary, super concentrated form of tea. Senegalese drink it like a coffee connoisseur would an espresso shot, only instead of one shot once a day, Ataya is 3 shots 3-5 times a day. Ataya is an amazing community bonding agent. There is usually a large group sitting under a tree talking and laughing in the interim between brewing and consumption.

After the first triplet of tea for the day we started lowering the pipe and rope into the well. My stomach was restless and I assumed the installation wouldn¹t work on the first go around. We often have to pull the system out of the well, tweak something small and then reinstall. This time, when we started to turn the crank, it turned smoothly. We saw water splash up and then out of the pipe head flowing strong. The women danced and one even got on top of the well cap! It was perfect timing for success.

Conclusion of Kologan Agroforestry Project – Togo

Conclusion of Kologan Agroforestry Project – TogoThis project has been completed under the direction of Peace Corps Volunteer Christine Remein. To read about the beginning of the project, CLICK HERE.

This project was to develop a sustainable system of agriculture by planting trees in alleys, alternated with crops, to improve soil quality, improve water retention, prevent erosion, provide wood, and prevent deforestation.

Christine reports:

This project was completed by the Sitchope Cooperative of Kologan.

An agro forestry system takes at least two seasons to reach production capacity. Although the system is not yet at capacity, all trees are planted and have established themselves. The cooperative therefore views the project as a success. As the trees continue to grow they will begin to fix nitrogen into the soil, and create compost to improve soil quality, water retention, and prevent erosion.

Conclusion of Kologan Agroforestry Project – TogoThe ally cropping will increase field production, and within 6 months provide wood for fodder and fuel. As the trees grow, labor input—in the way of land preparation and wood collection—will decrease. The farm will become increasingly more productive, producing more grains and vegetables.

The community also completed cisterns to expand their irrigation system.

Primarily Luceana, Semmia Samman and Lebbeck trees were planted in the alley cropping farms, though Albezia Chevelerie did not grow well in the local environment, and was thus limited in its use.

The cooperative did not plant the cabbage they originally intended to plant, or do some gardening they normally do. This is because the first rainy season was very irregular and they needed to water the grain alley cropping field by hand. Bringing water to the field created a large amount of unexpected labor.

Despite the extra labor created by irregular rains, the cooperative installed extra fruit and fodder trees to line the gardening field. The trees reinforce the agro forestry system. The trees will protect the cisterns and riparian zones from erosion, increase agricultural output, and create fodder.

Members of the cooperative have gained experience and understanding in implementing an alley cropping agro forestry system from seed to tree. They have gained an understanding of the amount of labor involved, how to install the system, when to plant, and what species to use. The cooperative will become a source for alley cropping seeds, and has contact with a seed supplier. All of these experiences can be passed on to other farmers in the area.

There should be very limited cost to sustaining the project in the future. Now that the trees have established themselves there will be very limited labor associated with the trees. Members of the cooperative have visited a functioning alley cropping field and therefore have enough experience to maintain the fields. If there were to be some sort of crisis, the members have contact with a seed supplier in a nearby city. The group is able to access co-op funds to pay for seeds. The cooperative has increased their field production capacity exponentially. Through implementing new farming techniques and transforming their farm, the cooperative members now have a better understanding of agricultural science, (i.e. soil quality and sustainability.)

We again wish to thank The Soneva SLOW LIFE Trust for providing the funding for this project.

52 Pumps in 52 Weeks – Senegal – Project 7 - Keur Andallah

52 Pumps in 52 Weeks – Senegal – Project 7 - Keur AndallahThis project is part of our 52 Pumps in 52 Weeks Program, being implemented by Peace Corps Volunteers Marcie Todd and Garrison Harward. To read about the program and follow its progress, CLICK HERE.

Location
Keur Andallah Willane, Fatick, Senegal

Community Description
Keur Andallah is definitely the most remote village I have worked in thus far into our project. This point was driven home full force as I rode my bike, before sunrise, the 24 kilometers from the main road to Saloum Diane and then another 3 kilometers on sand into the bush to get to Keur Andallah.

The remoteness of the village has its benefits though as it is situated right next to a national forest and has a multitude of birds, monkeys, jackals, and other wildlife. This brings in tourism from Toubacouta and also allows the villagers to supplement their nutrition through occasional hunting.

The village itself is beautiful and, as a result of the sheer number of Mango trees, is considerably cooler than the surrounding fields. The main crop here is peanuts along with some millet and corn, but the really unique thing about Keur Andallah is that right outside the village is an amazing riverbed area with several pools of water that last year round, even through the dry season. This allows for intensive gardening activities, which this motivated village takes full advantage of.

In the women’s garden there are no cement wells, because all the women have to do is dig down about 1 meter before they hit water. Everyone just digs little wells close to their plots rather than using a single central well. They grow vegetables in the dry season and when the riverbed gets flooded they switch to rice.

Project Description
While pulling water is not a problem out in the gardens, it is an issue in the village where the three community wells are at least 10 meters deep.

We’ve decided to put a pump on the most central and cleanest well, the one from which most people actually drink. There are often upwards of 15 women standing next to the well waiting to use the one pulley and bucket.

Project Impact
The 200 people who use this well daily as a drinking source will directly benefit along with anyone staying in the Health hut situated just 10 meters away.

Conclusion of Community Garden for People Living With HIV – Botswana

Conclusion of Community Garden for People Living With HIV – BotswanaThis project has been completed under the direction of Peace Corps Volunteer Alexandria Price. To read about the beginning of the project, CLICK HERE.

This project was to provide for the irrigation of the garden, a tank for the collection of rainwater, piping, and fixtures, as part of a project for the implementation of a vegetable garden for People Living with HIV.

Alexandria reports:

After receiving the funding, we immediately started implementing our priority goals of erecting the fence and purchasing necessary tools to cultivate the garden. I was impressed by the group's enthusiasm and dedication to the project and the possibilities seemed endless.

Conclusion of Community Garden for People Living With HIV – BotswanaA series of problems arose during which it appeared that we would be unable to meet our objective of having a water source at the garden. There was a severe water shortage in the village of Rakops due to below average rainfall and a malfunction at the local boreholes. Due to miscommunications, the Department of Water Affairs did not install our water tap.

We tried to carry and wheelbarrow water to the site and this led to a small amount of vegetables actually growing. We found it to be impossible to continue this task, as some villagers did not have access to water at their personal homes due to a breakdown of the local water system.

We decided to postpone the project until water would be available, but this did not happen until after planting season had ended.

Finally, the day I left my village the Department of Water Affairs FINALLY installed a private tap for the garden!!!! This will greatly add to the productivity and sustainability of the garden.

The new Peace Corps Volunteer and I are still in contact about the project and how to move it forward with the new water supply and storage tank in place.

We again thank The Soneva SLOW LIFE Trust for providing the funding for the Water Charity participation in this project.

52 Pumps in 52 Weeks – Senegal – Project 6 - Saare AssetThis project is part of our 52 Pumps in 52 Weeks Program, being implemented by Peace Corps Volunteers Marcie Todd and Garrison Harward. To read about the program and follow its progress, CLICK HERE.

Location
Saare Asset, Kolda, Senegal

Community Description
Asset means Saturday in Pulaar. We asked if the village was created on a Saturday, but only got laughs. Saare Asset is the second pump site in the cluster of small villages surrounding Saare Samba Thika. Saare Asset is slightly larger than the others with a total of 152 community members.

The 68 women of this village work on a 2 hectare community garden where they grow immaculate okra, hibiscus, and hot peppers. They spend the early morning hours watering their garden, come home to cook lunch and then start the watering process all over again.

Saare Asset and Saare Samba Thika are within walking distance from each other and in many ways a part of the same big family. The two villages intermarry, adopt each other’s farming and cow raising techniques and sometimes even have community meetings together. Though they seem similar in many ways the culture of Saare Asset is slightly different.

Saare Asset has a good number of boys who go into Kolda to study during the year, come back to work for summer break and to be with their families for Ramadan. This, among other things, seems to make community motivation slightly stronger.

Project Description
Saare Asset is genius when it comes to using their resources. They have two pulley systems set up that have a bucket attached to each end of the rope. When they are emptying one bucket, simultaneously the second bucket is filling; this cuts the onerous task of pulling water in half. Saare Asset is on the horizon of expanding their garden. They have almost saved enough money to expand their fence an extra hectare and with that in mind the hand pump will help save a lot of time.

Project Impact
The 68 members of the community garden and their families will benefit from the pump.

The replication of the process in neighboring villages is valuable for the proliferation of the technology and will lead to sustainability.

Amboromana Well Project - Madagascar

Amboromana Well Project - Madagascar Under the direction of Peace Corps Volunteer Felicia Tobias, this project is to build 4 wells in the Amboromana district of Vohemar, Madagascar.

There are currently 360 families living in the area, with population of 1,836 people.

There is only one public tap serving all the families and it often runs dry. People have to fetch water from a very distant dirty river, or do without.

The residents are very poor and have little to no disposable income to support a well project on their own.

Amboromana Well Project - Madagascar Oversight of the well construction will be undertaken by ARES, a local NGO. Sister Rosalie, a Malagasy local, will be spearheading the construction of the project ensuring that fair and honest prices and wages are paid.

Project funds will be used for materials, including cement, rebar, and well covers, and also for transport of materials and labor.

The community will provide some of the basic materials that can be gathered locally, including gravel, sand, and rocks, and also some of the unskilled labor. This will amount to about 25% of the total cost.

After construction, the well will be maintained by the community.

Amboromana Well Project - Madagascar Visits by health workers will educate the population about clean drinking water and ensure proper use of the wells.

The project will result in safe clean drinking water within a reasonable distance for the 1,836 inhabitants of the community.

The Water Charity participation in this project has been funded through the generosity of The Soneva SLOW LIFE Trust as a part of their Clean Water Projects initiative and Positive H2O (+H2O).

Conclusion of 52 Pumps in 52 Weeks – Senegal – Project 5 - Karang This project has been completed under the direction of Peace Corps Volunteers Marcie Todd and Garrison Harward. To read about the beginning of the project, CLICK HERE.

Garrison reports:

Probably the hardest part of this project is the fact that Marcie and I are installing a new pump every week. That might sound pretty obvious as the project is titled 52 Pumps in 52 Weeks, but nevertheless I find myself a little surprised every time it’s my turn again to install a pump. Also, fresh off the trials and tribulations of Massarinko and hearing of Marcie's rainy season and welder woes, I wasn't feeling quite ready at the beginning of this week to tackle yet another installation.

Such is life however and the relentless march of time waits for no one.

Due to other projects and scheduling problems I wasn't able to come to Karang when the group was making the well cap, which added to my nerves, and rightfully so because when I got there it just wasn't quite right. The cap was too thin, and the bolts securing the pump into the cement weren't holding very well. We decided to go ahead with the install anyway though, and see about repairs later.

Conclusion of 52 Pumps in 52 Weeks – Senegal – Project 5 - Karang We started by cleaning off the bottom of the cap, and then lifted the entire half cap and pump onto the well. We installed the piping and the rope and amazingly encountered none of the exasperating problems of the previous pump.

I started to feel a little more confident, which is always a bad sign. The install took all of about 30 min and then we were ready to try the pump. You've probably guessed by now that it didn't work. Well you're right. For some reason the wheel was spinning but it wasn't able to grip the rope, and thus the pump wasn't bringing up water. We fiddled for a while and eventually decided that the knots on the rope were too far apart this time so the wheel didn't have anything to grip except for the slick rope. I told everyone that I would be back in a few days with a new rope so that we could finish the install.

I went back to village that day a little disappointed, and more than a little tired, but determined to do right by the group and get the pump up and working as soon as I could. I bought more rope and tied the knots at a closer distance. In the end this rope turned out to be probably my best yet. The distance was great, the knots were smooth and small, and the whole thing passed easily through my now correctly sized test pipe.

I returned triumphantly a few days later with the new rope only to find my fellow PCV Byron standing in a little pool of water next to the well. I asked him where it had come from and he proceeded to turn the wheel of the pump and spill copious amounts of water everywhere without even the slightest hint of slippage on the wheel or any other mechanical problems. I looked at him and said "Alhamdulillah" (Grace be to god). Sometimes there's nothing else to be said. I've been thinking a lot about this, but I honestly can't say why the rope was slipping a few days ago and now it isn't. For once, chance worked in my favor, though so I'm not complaining. I'll take the win.

The well cap still has a few problems so while we're posting the completion now I will be back to reinforce it with another layer of concrete next week. We're holding off on measuring the output until after this because as is, the pump is really wobbly in the thin cap and we can't get it up to speed to measure the full output. Check back and it will be updated soon.

Pump Output: TBD

Total Number of People Benefiting: 20 (Plus roughly 100 family members)

Future Garden School Water Project – Thailand

Future Garden School Water Project – Thailand Under the direction of Returned Peace Corps Volunteer Mark Cox, this project is to bring a water supply to the Future Garden School from an adjoining property.

Future Garden School is a Burmese migrant learning center located in Phop Phra, Tak province, Thailand. It is located very close to the Burmese border and has 300+ students this year. These students are of mixed ethnicities, and their families have recently fled from Burma into Thailand looking for better opportunities and education. In addition to running classes for kindergarten through 5th grade, the school also runs a boarding house for over 30 of the students whose homes are too far away from the school to travel on a daily basis.

Their current problem arises from a lack of access to water. Last year they had a connection to a neighbor’s well. However, the well was downhill from the school, which required the school to purchase a pump. Due to a less-than-desirable neighbor and an isolated location of the well, the pump was broken several times and the principal of the learning center, Nwe Ni Win, decided to discontinue collaborating with this neighbor.

Nwe Ni Win recently arranged to obtain water from the other neighbor, who is a Thai village headman and has proven to be much more helpful with the school. This new well is uphill from the school, which eliminates the need for an electric pump.

Project funds will be used to purchase materials, including water pipe and glue, and pay some labor costs, to bring the water from the property of the neighbor. The school will contribute over 1/3 of the project cost.

Five members of the local Thai community will be chosen by the village headman to work on the project, which will last a total of four days.

This project will ensure that these 300 students can continue their education while having safe and clean conditions, something that their parents envisioned when leaving Burma and coming to Thailand.

Mark previously successfully completed the Pa Taan Daai Bathroom Project - Thailand during his service as a Peace Corps Volunteer. As a Returned Peace Corps Volunteer, he proceeded to complete the Ban Huay Lue Luang Bathroom Project - Thailand.

This project has now been fully funded through the generosity of The Soneva SLOW LIFE Trust as a part of their Clean Water Projects initiative.

We encourage others to continue to donate using the Donate button below, and we will notify Mark of your donation. Additional funds will be used to fund the next project by Mark and/or other projects in the country of service.

Conclusion of 52 Pumps in 52 Weeks – Senegal – Project 4 – Samba Thika

Conclusion of 52 Pumps in 52 Weeks – Senegal – Project 4 – Samba ThikaThis project has been completed under the direction of Peace Corps Volunteers Marcie Todd and Garrison Harward. To read about the beginning of the project, CLICK HERE.

Marcie reports:

The pump installation in Saare Samba Thika was different in many ways. The challenges in weather, the triumphs with the new members of our team, the demographic of well users and even the shape of the well were unlike what we had seen before.

Saare Samba Thika is composed of 98 people and only two wells. Of the two wells in town one has drinkable water and it is located in the largest compound in the village. We usually do not install a pump for an individual compound, but this is a special case. The compound itself has 46 members which composes more than half of the town. The compound and its well are very much a community space. All 98 members of town drink from this well and most come to hang out under the mango tree that sits directly in the center of the compound.

The wells in Samba Thika are square. I thought this might pose a problem for the mason, who is used to working with circular wells, but Sow (the mason) handled it like the professional he is and fashioned a perfectly fitting well cap.

Between the time of making the well cap and the 4-5 days it takes for the cement to dry properly we ran into some roadblocks. Almost instantly Saare Samba Thika’s community pump became slow moving. There were two major reasons: 1. Rainy Season and 2. Training a New Welder.

1. Tobugol [tōb- Ū- gŭl]- to rain.
Though tobugol’s meaning is translated to, to rain; to rain and tobugol are not synonyms. To rain is a complete understatement. It is more like Allah himself is directing hundreds of hands to pump a synchronized symphony of hundreds of wells onto the Koldan land and once the rain has stopped you’re left feeling like the last cheerio in the bowl; soggy and surrounded by liquid.

Rainy season is now upon us! It is clear that we will need to be more prepared, with more materials on hand, and be ready to install as soon as it is sunny out.

2. Introducing Sow.
Sow is our new welder. He is a short and stocky man who wears a winter hat and heavy jacket even on the hottest of days. He owns a small space on the main road into Kolda where he and his team of 9 weld doors, chariots, seeders, motorcycles, and almost any other thing of which you can think.

Sow is a brilliant man who clearly loves his profession. It has only been a week and a half since we started with Sow, but each time I stop by his place he is bursting out of his winter jacket to tell me of a new slight tweak he has made to the pumps to make them better. His most recent invention is a pump for schools designed so that the headmaster can take the handle off during recess.

Though Saare Samba Thika’s pump installation took longer than expected I think we gained some valuable insight and members to the team because of it. In rare instances, I guess it is okay to not be on time.
