Weimangoma village is located in West Sumba regency consisting of 1201 people. Most of the villagers work as farmers. They spend approximately 4 hours each day obtaining water by walking 1 km to the nearest source of water. The path becomes more challenging during the rainy season since it gets more slippery while the path is already steep.
Project Design and Simulation
For this project, Solar Chapter will build a solar-powered pump to pump water from the WeiLudang water source (the reservoir will be built by the Sumba Foundation) to the Paelu Pari distribution reservoir which is located on a higher ground, which is Hamlet 2. From Hamlet 2, the water will be distributed to Hamlets 1,3, and 4 using public taps.
