‘The tap has saved people so much time.’
Life is tough when there is no water available in your village. Women and children have to walk for miles along dangerous roads to collect water, which is often contaminated. Personal hygiene is almost impossible. Livestock cannot drink.
In Nepal, our local partner started the Pragatisheel Child Club – a group of local young people who meet regularly to plan improvements in the village. Recently they organised the construction of a new tap stand.
Says our partner, ‘Now people can now keep themselves clean, they have easy access to clean drinking water, for themselves and their livestock too.’
