With a lack of water supply system by the government, people and local facilities have no choice but to depend on water from the well for drinking, agriculture and daily use. However, groundwater is saline, contaminated by mercury and unfit for drinking.
In case of a school having no water resources in the school, they should come through the scarcity of water by teachers and students bringing water from their houses or purchasing bottled water. Because of the limited amount of water and the heavy burden on their limited budget, they refrain from using water such as using the toilet, washing hand after using the toilet and watering flowers in the ground. The water scarcity causes sanitation problems.
The activity took place in the selected four schools in West Lombok Regency; SDN 1 Pelangan, SDN 1 Batu Putih, SDN 4 Batu Putih, SDN 5 Batu Putih. *These schools participated in “Joint Project with TORAY” and “TORAY’s Torayvino Fund Projects”.
