478. Arthacharya Wellawaya Community Center (UP)

A preschool and community activity center with 130 Children and adults from low income poor families and 4 teachers use the new facilities. The community center conduct 6 days per week.
The Arthacharya community center situated in Thelulla Kolaniya village and away from the Thanamalwila city area in Uva Province. The children who study here coming from very poor families and the parents of the children are daily labours in the village farms, and their income is very low. The water connection from the road pipeline is not enough for the community center because they get water once a week from the road pipeline for drinking and for cleaning their toilet, especially the female students struggling for their sanitary needs, they had this water and sanitation issue for many years.
Realized, improved water and sanitation facilities:
Construct a deep tube well, supply electricity cable and the panel board, construct a well cover for the tube well, construct an iron water tower (22 feet high), supply 2000L water tank, supply a underwater pump, total pipeline system for the community center premises and pipeline connection for their toilets, construct a 1 hand washing unit (one unit has 3 taps), construct 5 tap posts, Etc… and paint all new constructions.
Now the students have water for their drinking and the sanitary needs.
Parents and villagers help for the constructions.

Reasons to increase the expenses.

• We planned to make the deep tube well for 53 meters, but we had to make deeper up to 65 meters because ground water level is in very deep than we expected.
• We had to use extra PVC pipes for the deep tube well for mud drilling.
• We had to dig the tube well in another location away from the planned location.
• We had to change the location of the iron water tower because of the request from the Arthacharya. We construct the water tower corner of the land 200 meters away from the planed location.
• We construct the extra hand washing unit (1 unit has 3 taps) and 5 tap posts in different places, we had to spend for that constructions which we did not estimate.
• We planned to supply 1.000L water tank but we had to supply 2.000L water tank because the water consumption is more than we expected.
• Increasement of the prices of building materials and other expenses of the projects due to the inflation.
