In the early stages of the project, the local Project Manager visited well over one hundred villages in central Myanmar to gather baseline data on current water needs and related infrastructure. The In-Country manager has field- tested optimum designs for standardized construction of 3,000 gallon and 5,000 gallon water tanks. The In-Country construction team, with labour input from each village, construct and install concrete water supply tanks and piping systems, usually best located in the grounds of local schools.
The GDG partnership began in May 2014, with a goal of funding a further 52 village water tanks over a three year period. Thanks to the hard work of the in country team and generosity of our donors this goal has been well-surpassed, with 184 water tanks being completed within this period! Living Water Myanmar now plans to install water tanks in another 120 villages facing severe water shortages over the next three years.
