Challenge

Khumaltar, Nainas VDC, Lamjung is a remote village with no accessible water supply. They get water from a small post 700m away from the village. Because of this daily struggle, they are not able to produce vegetables or any other kind of cultivation. They rely upon rain water. The village has made requests to many organizations, and even the government sector to support the pipeline, but nothing has come of it.

Solution

Our project will help by building a pipeline from the post to the village of Khumaltar, Nainas VDC, Lamjung.. They need 700m of pipe, building materials, and labor cost. They will have to dig a 700m long, 2 foot deep trench to lay the pipe. We would like to pay for local laborers from the village to do the work to help stimulate the local struggling economy while they wait for the cultivation season.

Long-Term Impact

The pipeline will provide much needed water to this remote village allowing for better sanitation and eventual cultivation of crops. This will give the village the ability to remain self sustainable and generate an economy. It will benefit everyone from the workers who build it, to the farmers who use it on their terraces, to the many villagers who will have access to safe drinking water for years to come.
