Situation

The problem is the lack of water in the 4 VDCs (Village Development Committees) of the project area, that is crippling these communities who are struggling to survive. Next to agriculture, other areas are affected by the lack of water, e.g. health, child malnutrition, hygiene. According to the World Health Organization (WHO) and Nepalese Government, the daily water supply per capita should be between 45-60 liters - here the water supply is around 6 liters (less than a modern toilet flush.

Solution

The project will provide adequate and potable, drinking water and help to reduce morbidity and mortality caused by water borne diseases. It will especially improve the lives of children and women.
