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.
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.
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.
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.
This project has provided additional documentation in a Microsoft Word file (projdoc.doc).
