Water Resources Development Program

Most of the people in the region are terribly suffering from unsafe water supply and lack of poor hygiene and sanitation services, which let them in for acute waterborne, trachoma and other communicable diseases. There has also been considerable capacity limitation in the region in the area of small scale irrigation development. With the conviction to involve in Water Resource Development and address substantive felt-needs of the people, the organization set goal, intending to improve livelihoods, and hygiene and sanitation status of poor women, men and children in the region. As the result, it has designed different strategies to make this goal a reality.

In view of that ORDA has been supporting integrated interventions of safe water supply, hygiene and sanitation, and irrigation development, and capacity strengthening of CBOs and the beneficiary communities. Its integrated engagement includes environmental protection, ground water potential enrichment, upgrading and maintenance of existing water sources, adaptation of hygiene and sanitary practices, and mobilization of communities.
