Project Outputs
  • 18 rain water harvesting systems were installed in Brandix employee’s households in 8 districts
  • Approximately 90 people including old people and children will benefit from having safe drinking water source at their door step
  • More than 100 rural people made aware on benefits of rain water technology
  • 18 households were trained on operation of maintenance of Rain water harvesting system
Problems Encountered
  • Valence board was present in most of the households, therefore had to be installed
  • Transport of materials to some sites were difficulty due to difficult terrain, therefore had to spend extra on labour for carrying materials to sites.
  • Rainy season during the month of December and January delayed construction activity
  • Shortage of cement and increase in price during the project period
  • One household was initially reluctant to have the RWH constructed
