5)Problems
In the project area, hill tribes are living. They are minority and make up about 1.5 percent of the total population of Thailand, however, they cannot receive enough public services such as education and medical care. Children of hill tribes in these situation go to Sahamit Wittaya School. The school depends on water from river and well for domestic, agricultural and drinking purposes. During dry season, water level of the river goes down and?available amount of water from wells is decreasing due to population grow and earthquakes.

6)Outputs
・Installing a water supply and storage system with 10 tanks and pipes for domestic and agricultural purpose
・Installing a rainwater supply and storage system with 4 tanks and rain gutters for drinking? purpose

・600 students and 50 teachers of the Sahamit Wittaya School will be able to use drinking water by utilizing rainwater
