Drinking water for the Kailash Hostel in Nepal

$10,000 $0
Raised Remaining


To supply drinking water to the Kailash Hostel in Kathmandu Nepal, home to 100 children. The current water supply for the hostel comes from a 300 feet bore-well but the water is not palatable.

What is the issue, problem, or challenge?

US$ 10,000 to construct a collection tank, run a 1.5 km pipe line through the village to the hostel, and install outlet pipes along the way. Approximately 500 people from the village will benefit from clean drinking water as well as 100 children from the Kailash Hostel.

How will this project solve this problem?

Construction of a water collection tank. Laying of a 1.5 km pipe line and fitting of outlet pipes along the line to enable the villagers easy access to the water.

Potential Long Term Impact

The Villagers and Children will be provided with clean drinking water for daily consumption. This will also reduce the long term risks of serious health problems.
