Our project seeks to eradicate the problems that poverty creates in the remote villages of Tipling and Shertong, Nepal. Living in poverty gives rise to domestic abuse and alcoholism in the home. Due to a lack of education, sanitary latrine systems are not available, nor is safe drinking water. In addition, current cooking methods used there are unsafe and create toxic byproducts. As women play a central role in the functions of the home in Nepal, they are most affected by these issues.
Our project gives poor, low caste Kami women goats, latrines, and safe cook stove materials. All villagers will be educated on how sanitary latrines and safe cooking stoves will improve their health. And because women have the responsibility for water collection, meal preparation and domestic hygiene, they are also given special instructions about health and sanitation.
We seek to provide women with 4 goats each. Owning a goat creates opportunities so that women are economically stable enough to leave situations of abuse in the home. Sanitary latrines allow for the safe restructuring of the water and sanitation systems. Safer cook stoves mean that women and children are no longer subject to environments of toxic smoke. By empowering and educating women, healthier and safer villages are the result of this project, affecting about 1500 people in total.
