For the past year, more than 75 families in Takure have received an increased supply of water from the 40,000 liter tank built with the support of donors like you. This means less time waiting to fill up buckets, and more time for studies, work and other household chores.
The community is grateful and looks forward to completing Phase 2: A New Distribution System. Our hope is to begin this project in 2021 to bring water directly to each house. "One House, One Tap" has been a goal of Takure for many years.
We will continue to keep you updated as the next phase develops. Thank you as always for your continued support!
Last week, we completed the "Pre-Feasibility Study Report" to explore the design, budget, timeline and plan of action for implementing a comprehensive new water system in Takure that would provide 70+ homes with clean drinking water directly to their houses. This is the first big step in hopefully beginning this project in 2020.
Also, the new 40,000 liter water tank is full of water and being used to feed the current system, providing more consistent and sufficient water to the 7 communal taps.
Every donation now will go towards supporting the future full-scale water project to serve Nepali families here in Takure, Sindhupalchok. We are excited for the additional work to come!
Six months following the completion of the new 40,000 liter Takure water tank, and the work continues. This month, we are assessing the distribution lines and the possibility of a "one home, one tap" program, in which all families would receive direct water access to their homes. Currently, they must walk to a public tap and wait in line. While this is an exciting and inspiring possibility, there are also challenges. Families live throughout the mountains, and distribution lines can be complicated. Additionally, this will require meters installed to monitor the amount of water used by each family in order to ensure that each family fairly compensates the community for their use. We will continue to keep you updated in the process. Thank you for your continued support!
