Summary

An estimated 3.5 million Nepalese lack access to basic water supply and a majority of this population occupies the rural hills of the country. Lack of water supply is also preventing these people from adhering to good hygiene and sanitation practices such as using a toilet and handwashing. The project aims to benefit 482 individuals from 102 households and 75 students from a community school in Juke, a rural community located in the hills of central Nepal, through access to potable water supply.

Challenge

The rugged, fragile geography makes water supply difficult in the hills of the country. Climate change and frequent disasters further exacerbate the water supply problem. Without access to potable water, people rely on unprotected sources that are often contaminated with fecal matter. Contaminated water is responsible for frequent outbreak of waterborne diseases and remains a leading cause of child mortality in the country. Furthermore, there is a major funding shortfall in rural water supply.

Solution

In coordination with the local government, the project will construct a spring-fed gravity-flow water supply system with community and school taps to provide access to potable water at the doorsteps and promote improved sanitation and good hygiene practices to bring about sustainable behavior changes. While doing so, the project will ensure local people's active and meaningful participation in all stages of project and empower women and socially excluded groups to take part in decision-making.

Long-Term Impact

This is a lifechanging project for the 557 people in Juke community, enabling them to live a healthy and dignified life full of new opportunities. Through access to potable water, improved sanitation, and safe hygiene services, no children, men and women will ever die from waterborne diseases; girls will be able to continue their education; absenteeism in schools will be reduced; and women can engage in productive activities instead of wasting precious time fetching water from distant sources.
