Our ambitious project seeks to bring water access, sanitation and menstrual hygiene management to three high hilltop schools and surrounding communities in Nepal's Gulmi District. With an anticipated timeframe of April 2020 to October 2025, this project will bring water access to more than 1,031 school children and reach over 4,640 indirect beneficiaries with improved WaSH practices.

Girls across Gulmi tell us the same thing; they cannot attend school when menstruating. Countless schools in this beautiful and remote region sit high above their water source, therefore, there is no water in the taps and no way of flushing a toilet. For several days a month, young girls who already face a cultural battle to enrol in school, are forced to stay home while male peers continue to attend. This directly contributes to gender inequality and keeps girls at lower levels of education


This project aims to make education inclusive to 1,031 children attending three schools in Gulmi, we support 3 schools without water to purchase and install solar-powered water pump bringing clean, affordable and sustainable water supply. We will install hygiene and sanitation infrastructure designed to meet the needs of girls, boys and children with disabilities. We will also include a hygiene and sanitation awareness campaign which is driven, designed and delivered by young people themselves.

Long-Term Impact

Solar water pumping will benefit not just the schools' 1031 pupils, but the 54 strong teaching staff of the schools and the communities in the immediate vicinity of the school, which will have access to sustainable water in their homes. In total, 1,571 people will benefit directly, and a further 4,640 people will benefit indirectly, through education on WaSH. This will improve the level of hygiene in the area whilst giving the girls a sense of empowerment as they take control of their lives.
