Summary

Nepal has a long-standing infrastructural problem. The poor quality and lack of roads in the country has crippled its development. Therefore, most Nepalese households lack basic needs such as drinking water, electricity and proper latrines. With your help, we will be able to support 32 households and 200 villagers in Mohorigaun. RIDS-Nepal was created in 2002 with the goal of providing the basic services to the households of this rural, remote village.

What is the issue, problem, or challenge?

Nepal has a long-standing problem regarding its infrastructures. The poor quality and lack of roads in the country has crippled its development. Therefore, most Nepalese households lack access to basic needs such as drinking water, electricity and proper latrines. As a result, Nepalese villagers suffer from terrible diseases because of the lack of hygiene. With the Family of Four system, we can provide households with basic needs and improve their living condition.

How will this project solve this problem?

The objective of the project is to install potable water systems for the 32 households (200 people in total, an average of six per household) of the remote village of Mohoriguan. The other three elements of the Family of Four--electricity, smokeless stoves, and latrines--have already been installed. The local communities strongly support RIDS-Nepal's commitment and are directly involved in the implementation and maintenance of the Holistic Development model and its components.

Potential Long Term Impact

The 200 villagers will enjoy decent living conditions in terms of health and hygiene. Once this basic level acquired, they will be able to concentrate on further improvements, such as agricultural development and other improvements to their standard of living. RIDS-Nepal supports non-formal education for out-of-school children and mothers and the skill-based training of local people in the maintenance of all implemented projects to ensure sustainable system functionality and economic development
