HEALTH & LIFE QUALITY IMPROOVEMENT  

 

 

COMMUNAL AQUEDUCT = BETTER WATER QUALITY + HEALTH + LESS EFFORT TO
COLLECT WATER = HAPPY COMMUNITY + LIFE QUALITY IMPROOVEMENT = POSITIVE ATTITUDE TOWARDS CHANGE AND WILLINGNESS TO COOPERATE

Its simple, basic logic and common sense resulting in the following scenario:

  • Give each community a well-built, long-lasting aqueduct that provides water from a deep-well to each house = Communal members will avoid having to carry water and have a steady supply all year-round, in-doors
  • Give them pure, clean water from a source guaranteing sound water quality = Communal members will live healthy and more independent from medical centres
  • Deliver the aqueduct fully finished, “turn-key” ready and properly supplying water at no cost for the community = Hold in the hands the cards for future cooperation under full trust to use this donation as a tool to later-on push them to accept and understand other ideas and proyects being more difficult to convince them, regarding long-term benefitts and environmental protection

In this line of ideas we initiated the search for funding and optained it through the private “COLEGIO NUEVA GRANADA” school, which, up to now, has donated the money needed to buy all necessary materials such as the motor-pump, the tubing, the water tanks and all relevant accessories to build and put into good use of an aqueduct for the “caboclo” communitie of San Pedro do Norte; the man-hour work and requiered tools to perforate the deep-well, as well as the wood, nails, screws, bolts and other accessories needed to built the water-tower holding the water-tanks were donated by the “RESERVA NATURAL PALMARI” together with the logistics regarding transport of construction material, tools, feeding of the involved carpenters and masons, as well as lodging equipment for the institute´s personell stationed at the job-site; then, during 2 month, three groups of students from the “COLEGIO NUEVA GRANADA”, “COLEGIO TRINIDAD DEL MONTE” and “CIEDI” visiting the Reserva Natural Palmari as part of their annual educational pensum in respect to their excursions curriculum took to the task of building the full infrastructure with help and orientation from the community members and the whole proyect being managed, controlled and exceptionally well administrated by the institute´s operational manager, Mr. Jaime Gonzalves Cunha assisted by the british volontaire Mr. Peter Richards; also we find important to mention that the requiered lobbying to promote and sell the proyect to the involved private schools was professionally-well taken care of by the summer-camp & school class excursion operating agency “ZAMBO – OBA”
