Building a Village Drinking Water System

Dear friends of Mohorigaun village

If you read the previous project report you know that earlier this year another organization has built in Mohorigaun village a drinking water system (DWS), without prior to their activities informing or enquiring with RIDS-Nepal what programs/projects are already running and what other projects, such as the DWS, are planned. If they would have they would have come to know that RIDS-Nepal has been planning to built a village DWS since 2011, and thus has started to raise the needed funds and, once funds have been raised, to built in partnership with the local community their village drinking water system. However, good as it would have been to have access to clean drinking water, it is also the unfortunate truth that the newly built drinking water system is not working as intended, even though their budget was significant higher than what RIDS-Nepal initially planned and try to raise through the GlobalGiving web site.

Thus, the Mohorigaun people have again addressed RIDS-Nepal to REPAIR WITH them their urgent needed DWS, so that they finally get the needed access to clean drinking water, as to have access to clean drinking water is ONE of the MAIN programs of RIDS-Nepal's "Family of 4" community development concept.

In the last few weeks we have been investigating what needs to be done in order to mitigate the present situation and to hopefully start, once we get the needed funding in (which is not at all yet the case...), to get this DWS project done properly as we initially have planned. Thus I hope you are still encouraged to continue to stand with us and the people from Mohorigaun village to raise the needed funds to get the DWS done so that water WILL flow from the 4 tap stands in the village and the ladies and young girls do not have to walk down to the river and fetch water, which is not clean, and carry it back to the village.
