Support School and Latrine Construction in Nepal

by GlobeMed at CU Boulder Vetted since 2012 Effective Nonprofit

Summary

This project enables the reconstruction and operation of the Lapa Secondary School in the remote Northern Dhading District of Nepal. This school was destroyed in an earthquake in 2015 and is the only accessible school for the children of Lapa. Additionally, this project supports the establishment of a sustainable hygiene system by constructing latrines to work towards our goal of one home, one toilet, thus reducing hygiene related illness across the Dhading District.

Challenge

Our project seeks to eradicate the problems that poverty creates in the remote villages of Tipling, Lapa, and Shertung, 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. Additionally, in 2015 an earthquake destroyed all twenty schools in the three villages, and these public schools are the only option for students in the region.

Solution

Our project provides these three villages with increased hygiene and thus health benefits through their ability to use the latrines and the knowledge regarding sustainable hygiene practices by using the latrines. Reconstructing the Lapa Secondary School allows the students of the village to attend school again and continue their education and become proficient in crucial skills, including computer based skills.

Long-Term Impact

Each latrine constructed helps to improve villages' water and sanitation systems by reducing public toileting and educating community members how to construct the latrines and the importance of good hygiene practices. Reconstruction of the Lapa Secondary School, with an earthquake resistant structure, helps to ensure that students will have access to an education in the future by providing the structure and resources to give students valuable and useful skills for their future.
