ROCHE-A-BATEAU CLEAN WATER DISTRIBUTION CENTER

Purpose of the Initiative

The proposed project aims to provide a sustainable community driven pilot program to provide access to clean water to the population in Roche-a-Bateau. This pilot will not only provide clean water and clean the environment; it will provide jobs and training and support healthy lifestyles for the communities' members which are dangerously at risk of being killed by the lethal Cholera epidemic that has been ravaging Haiti.

Project Goal

Establish the clean water distribution center in a site donated and selected by the community in Roche-a-Bateau by the end of 2011.

Justification

The increasing number of cases of cholera in the South of Haiti, highlights the need for sustainable, long-term water infrastructure providing affordable, clean water free of vibrio cholera and coliform bacteria such as e. coli. Gaskov Clergé Foundation (GCF) proposes a durable pilot project where cost-effective water purification systems will be installed in Roche-a-Bateau first and eventually in other communities once this pilot project is successfully completed. The capital and support cost per litre is estimated to be US$0.001 (0.039 gourdes) per litre or US$0.004 (0.15 gourdes) per gallon when amortized over 2 years and includes all maintenance and ongoing materials costs.

Cost: $28,650.00 US
Operations Start Date: December 1, 2011

This project can benefit from a solar energy system which can be installed at a later date. If you would like to contribute towards such system, contact GCF at info@gaskov.org. To donate directly
