Ladai Village, Ganluo 2004-2008

Ladai Village is located in Liaoping township, Ganluo County, close to the border with Yuexi County. There are 109 households of Yi and Tibetan nationality. When DORS visited the village in early 2005, we found that most households lacked convenient access to clean water, with many local women spending hours collecting and carrying water. Consequently we have worked with villagers to complete a water supply project, involving the building of a large tank and installation of piping. Villagers have developed their own water management and maintenance guidelines. Cement paths have also been built. The village used to have no water system, and now basically everyone has running water.

This project in Ladai was funded by Misereor 2004-2008
