Final Report: Zhengga Village Solar Water Heater and Sanitation Household Bathroom Project (2012)

This report outlines a small-scale project undertaken in Tibet’s Zhengga Village, which provided a solar water heater and bathroom to each of its 97 households (and their 430 inhabitants). With the Community itself raising 179,450 Chinese Yuan (€22,391) towards the project, the Tibetan Development Assistance Trust provided 194,000 Chinese Yuan (€24,202) to the Lotus Charity Association to allow its realization. The project was implemented from April-December 2011, and was fully successful.

The report lists a number of clear benefits arising from the completed project:

• Increased hygiene

• Increased welfare, especially for women and children 

- Less time spent collecting fuel for cooking

- Less exposure to harmfuel fuels from charcoal cookers

• Decreased CO2 emissions for the village

Although small-scale, the project’s success demonstrates the real benefits of SWH uptake in the rural areas of developing countries; and highlights the potential of independently funded initiatives. The report also provides photos to chart the project’s progress.
