Sapana Village Social Impact (SVSI), under the leadership of its Founder & Director, Mr. Dhruba Giri, was recently invited to a crucial meeting organized at Khairahani Municipality Ward no. 10. The primary focus of the meeting was to address the pressing issue of "Drinking Water Problem" that has been affecting three villages in the area, namely Jivanpur, Sundarbasti, and Musaharbasti.
Upon conducting water quality testing, it was distressingly revealed that the drinking water in these villages was deemed "Not Suitable to Ingest" by the Federal Water Supply and Sewage Management Project. The water quality analysis showed that the levels of Arsenic and Nitrate were alarmingly five times higher than the acceptable limits, rendering it unsafe for consumption.
As part of their commitment to driving positive change, SVSI took the initiative to visit Jivanpur village to assess the situation on the ground. During the visit, it was discovered that out of the 41 households in the village, a significant number of 24 families were facing economic challenges that prevented them from affording the installation of quality drinking water facilities within their homes.
In response to this urgent need, the community came together to request financial assistance from SVSI. Recognizing the gravity of the situation, SVSI took proactive steps to address this issue. A subsequent meeting was held with Mr. Sokha Prasad Chaudhary, the Chairman of the Drinking Water Department, to discuss potential solutions.
A collaborative approach was agreed upon during this meeting, involving three key stakeholders: Public Participation, SVSI, and the Local Government. This partnership aims to pool resources, expertise, and efforts to tackle the drinking water crisis effectively. By leveraging the combined strength of these parties, a comprehensive plan will be formulated to provide sustainable and safe drinking water solutions for the affected villages.
Through this strategic collaboration, SVSI and its partners are committed to making a meaningful impact on the lives of the villagers. By addressing the immediate need for safe drinking water and promoting public participation, this endeavor aligns perfectly with SVSI's mission of driving positive social change and improving the well-being of the communities they serve.
