The village power could also be used for water pumping to provide portable water for the village dwellers. This will cut down on the labor and time women spend to fetch water for drinking and other uses in their families thereby freeing up time for them to participate in learning and other social and economic empowerment activities. Training programs included a public workshop on household water and energy management to ensure energy and water use efficiency.
The objective of these activities was to establish the human infrastructure necessary for a sustainable renewable energy industry for rural development. The partnership developed and delivered a number of specific training courses (and workshops and seminars) to specific audiences during this project, and paved the way for the development of other courses for future delivery as well as provide an impetus for policy discussions on women programs and other developmental initiatives. Training and workshop participants included locals.
