Nepal is known for its beautiful Himalayan Mountains, deep valleys and richly flowing streams. But many of its water sources are not only far, they're also difficult and dangerous to access in the mountainous terrain.

Clean water projects can improve access to clean, safe drinking water, shortening time spent walking for water and improving health in the communities we serve.
