Surekha is no more wasting time for water

About family-     Surekha Behera W/o- Brundaban Behera living with her family at Ektala village in  Rajkanika Block under Kendrapara district. Practically she is a very poor housewife. Her family members are her husband and three sons who are studying in school. Her husband is working as a vegetable vendor and moving door to door for getting Rs.200/- @day. There is no other source of income in her family and they are maintaining their family from hand to mouth.                                                                                                                                                                                    
Problem- The main problem was in her family, she was not accessing the drinking water easily and very difficult for her to fetch water from long distance. She found it difficult to look after her children as well supporting to her husband. Always her children were suffered various diseases and she had to spent much more time and money for this purpose. Sometimes she was also losing her social prestige for collecting water at public stand post. 

GU Intervention- When she came to know from Jaljeevika Awareness program which was organized by Gram-Utthan with support of water.org in her village that, GU is providing technical support along with financial support to the SHG members with less interest for water connection. She felt very lucky as a member of SHG formed by GU.  Immediately she discussed with her husband and decided to have a pipe water connection at their door step by taking loan support from Gram-Utthan. In next SHG meeting she discussed with GU field staff and applied a loan for pipe water connection. Soon after she applied a loan for the water connection the technical person from Gram-Utthan visited her house for site selection and list of materials. Gram-Utthan also sanctioned her loan application and disbursed the loan amount of Rs.10000/- on March-2016.She brought the pipe water connection from public pipe line to her door step with the technical guidance of GU personnel with Panchayat approval.  

Impact- After completion of her water connection the technical person of Gram-Utthan taught her, how to collect drinking water from pipe and how the water source point have to maintain in a hygienic condition. Now she is using her drinking water from newly connected pipe and feels very comfort and happiness. The most important thing is that she is using this water for drinking and bathing purposes and not going outside as earlier. Now she is getting sufficient time to look after the study of her children and supporting her husband for vegetable cultivation. With an example of her family the other members of her SHG now motivated to have their pipe water connection at door step with support of Gram-Utthan.
