All Good friends against poverty

Access to water! Act with us to offer solutions to help villages in rural areas!

Water is just life! Unsafe drinking water is a major cause of diarrheas, which is the 2nd leading killer of children under five in the country and accounts for about 20% of child deaths each year. Every year, at least 300 out of 1,000 Indonesians suffer from water-borne diseases, including cholera, dysentery, and typhoid fever! Bringing them water is therefore essential to their lives, as malnutrition and infant mortality are highly due to the lack of water. It is also essential for safe food, cleaning wounds, hygiene in general or to avoid diseases and transmission.

Bring Water for Life | Access to drinking water and sanitation is a human right!

#WaterForLife #KawanBaikSumba #KawanBaikIndonesia #Act4FairFuture #FairFutureFoundation

Background of this Vital program leading by the Fair Future Foundation

Hello Kawans, how are you?

Water supply and sanitation in Indonesia is characterized by poor levels of access and service quality. Over 40 million people lack access to an improved water source and more than 110 million of the country’s 260 million population has no access to improved sanitation. Only about 2% of people have access to sewerage in urban areas; this is one of the lowest in the world among middle-income countries. Water pollution is widespread in Bali and Java. Women in Jakarta report spending US$11 per month on boiling water, implying a significant burden for the poor.

The estimated level of public investment of only US$2 per capita a year was insufficient to expand services significantly and to properly maintain assets. Furthermore, policy responsibilities are fragmented between different Ministries. Since decentralization was introduced in Indonesia in 2001 local governments (districts) have gained responsibility for water supply and sanitation. However, this has so far not translated into an improvement of access or service quality, mainly because devolution of responsibilities has not been followed by adequate fund channeling mechanisms to carry out this responsibility. Local utilities remain weak.

Unsafe drinking water is a major cause of diarrhoeas, which is the second leading killer of children under five in the country and accounts for about 20% of child deaths each year. Every year, at least 300 out of 1,000 Indonesians suffer from water-borne diseases, including cholera, dysentery, and typhoid fever, according to the Ministry of Health.

The provision of clean drinking water has unfortunately not yet been taken up as a development priority, particularly at the provincial government level. The lack of access to clean water and sanitation remains a serious challenge, especially in slums and rural areas.

This is a major concern because of the lack of clean water reduces the level of hygiene in the communities and it also raises the probability of people contracting skin diseases or other waterborne diseases. A failure to aggressively promote behaviour change, particularly among low-income families and slum dwellers, has further worsened the health impact of Indonesia’s water and sanitation situation.

Access to Water in a few figures!

Access to water in a few figures!

  • Indonesia has one of the lowest sewerage coverage levels in Asia with only 2% access in urban areas. Most excreta and wastewater are discharged untreated or semi-treated into local drains or water bodies, causing massive environmental pollution. Dense housing, severe seasonal flooding and the choking of drains with uncollected solid waste exacerbate the problem;
  • According to the World Bank, urban sanitation is the least well addressed of major policy issues in Indonesia. In rural areas, access to improved sanitation has increased from 24% in 1990 to 44% in 2010;
  • In 2015, 11% use shared latrines, 10% use unsanitary open pits and 35% defecate in fields, beaches, and water bodies;
  • In 2020, the foundation can realize every day that these figures have not changed. Perhaps the situation has worsened in the past two years.
Urban (44% of the population) Rural (56% of the population) Total
Improved water source 92% 74% 82%
House connections 36% 8% 20%
Improved sanitation 73% 39% 54%
Sewerage 2% 0% 1%

Aim of this Action for Water

Aim – Water for all

Bringing them water is therefore essential to their lives, as malnutrition and infant mortality are high due also to the lack of water. The installation of wells in a village radically changes the lives of people.

Therefore the foundation aims to provide access to reliable and 100% renewable access to water to villages on the driest part of the Sumba Island (East Sumba).

Why everyone should have access to water?

Why everyone should have access to Water?

Malnutrition and infant mortality are high! The women are spared walking to the well sometimes far away. Imagine having to walk barefoot for hours in treacherous, dangerous terrain just for a glass of water.

During one of our visits, a woman said: “We do not have enough water to cook and we can not wash every day, once a week. I have to walk 12 km to the well and back, or I have to pay Rp.5k for a 5-liter water bottle, which will not last a day “.

Water offers a range of opportunities to diversify livelihoods such as processing fish to make dried meat, livestock production and irrigated agriculture for consumption and sale. There are also benefits to food security and the health of all.

Instead of spending Rp.5k per bottle of water for a day, villagers will now spend only Rp.10k or Rp.20k per month on any well maintenance. People wash daily rather than once a week.

How ca we do this??

How can we do this?

We propose to build a solar water pump. This sustainable project will guarantee the villages constant, effective, and sustainable access to drinking water. The crowdfunding campaign online is about IDR. 65,000,000.- / $4,500.- for one full installation, and is calculated on the basis of known successful projects in the villages of Napu and Palanggai.

If another “access to water* project is realized, it will allow men, women, and children to devote more time and energy to their education and their economy. With your help, we can help the people of a village in East Sumba, access clean water and save hours per day – imagine what this time saved could bring them on a socio-economic level. Together, we can contribute to easier access to clean water and help break the cycle of poverty.

Thank you very much for your concrete help and your love, to offer a bright future to many people and their families, communities also!
