“I occasionally assisted the maintenance work in the community, which I performed without the aid of any tools. But attending the training helped me enhance my knowledge even more. I got well acquainted with the equipment and tools and now I’m confident to take over the responsibility as a VMW. It’s just the second day of the training and I’ve learned a lot. Knowing that we’ll have access to water right in front of my yard itself is something that I had not imagined but the organization is not only working on building the scheme but is also focusing on its sustainability of the scheme. I’m grateful to the organization and I hope to learn even more in the upcoming days.” – Dhanpati Nepal, Satdobato WSS
On 7th February 2023, Day 2 of the Village maintenance worker training began with a revision of Day 1. The participants were briefed about the training content which largely focused on practical sessions. Participants had hands-on practice with the tools and fittings explained to them in the session the earlier day. The whole day was dedicated to practical sessions on HDPE and GI pipes and fittings whereby the trainees were able to join a few of the HDPE pipe fittings by themselves, take basic measurements, use basic GI pipe cutting and threading tools to get the required pipe lengths from a full-length pipe. Similarly, participants were depicted on how to install the fittings in a tap stand and ferro-cement tank.
Day 3 of the training will continue tomorrow i.e on 8th February 2023 which will also focus on practical sessions.
