ELEVATED WATER TANK FOR TAKARALE COMMUNITY OF MATABAN DISRICT

By Deegaan Bile Hirshabelle Project with Takarale community of Mataban District Communities

Using a participatory community consultation process, the Takarale community in Mataban District prioritized the construction of an elevated water tank. This will address improving women’s access to water and the storage of water in the village. The distance of the borehole from the central of the village is about two kilometres. Piping frome the borehold will be completed for full connection where individuals can get connection of piping from the water tank.

 

Takarale village of Mataban district is in the Hiraan region of Hirshabelle state of Somalia with an estimated population of 1,100 households inside the village. It lies on the Northen side of Beergadiid and the Southern side of Mataban town, off a main road that connects Hirshabelle and Galmudug State. Takarale is about 25 kilometres from Beergadid. The village has one school and the borehole as the only community infrastructure.

The Takarale community has shown great interest in participating in the Deegaan Bile matching grant project, which supplements the funds raised by the community at a set ratio. The community has no previous experience in initiating and co-financing projects. It is their first time to experience this opportunity. Thus far, communities have established a Community Project Implementation Unit (CPIU) representing the community, and who will lead the implementation of the selected priorities from fundraising to completion of the market construction. For the matching grant with Deegaan Bile project, Takarale community will raise $10,000, and the project will match it with $40,000 in the ratio of 1 to 4. The total project cost estimated is $50,000.

The project identification is a decision the community has unanimously reached together with the Government, as this contributes to both social cohesion, and improves access to water. The community committees attended the participatory planning process and local fundraising training to empower and transfer skills to the selected community project implementation unit. The elevated water tank will bring the connection closer to the community and can connect piping to the houses with their own money.

 

Thank you for contributing towards improving access to water through joint fundraising that will promote social cohesion of the district through the construction of the elevated water tank.
