It is a group of young minds that is keen on innovating new and meaningful ideas. This year students of Shree Majh Gaun Srijansil Prakriti Bal Club (Shree Majh Gaun Creative Nature Club) of Mirge-1, Dolakha celebrated Tihar (second biggest festival of Hindus) in their community by advocating about safe drinking water measures that one should adopt in order to lead a healthy life.

Deusi-bhailo program that the nature club held wasn't just about entertainment. Along with giving blessings for wealth, happiness and prosperity, the members communicated with the community through songs incorporating water and sanitation issues. Furthermore, to disinfect water, they gifted WATASOL (sodium hypochlorite solution) that they have been producing themselves after attending training given by ECCA. The team elaborated about its easy use, advantages, low cost and production methods to the people as they travelled from house to house celebrating Deusi-bhailo.

"Because of the earthquake, we feel that it is even more important to keep raising such issues as the earthquake has led people to unconsciously degrade their health behaviours. Making people aware about their drinking water and health habits saves them from outbreak of (water-borne) diseases as well", expressed one of the club members during a feedback meeting.
