Field Notes

Thanks to you, this community now has access to clean and safe drinking water. They've also been trained by our local partners on safe hygiene practices and basic maintenance of their water project. Each family using the new water source contributed toward their project's construction -- a small fee, but one that helps instill a sense of personal ownership for the project. Each family will continue to pay a small amount to use the water; the community will save this money for any necessary maintenance and repairs.

Note: We wanted to show you that this community is serious about keeping their project safe, clean and functioning for years to come. They built a fence on their own initiative, to prevent animals from contaminating the area and to show ownership of their new water source.

Note: You may be wondering why there are so many different stands for this community, and we’re happy to say that this gravity fed system was able to provide many stands with running water in this community. This decreases the distance women and children are required to walk in order to have access to clean safe drinking water.

Note: You may have noticed your campaign funded additional projects in Nepal. Our partner Nepal Water for Health were able to complete projects in even more communities -- which means the money you raised is serving more people than we ever thought!

Because this is an extra project, the project sign reads mycharity: water.
