Nepal is known for its beautiful Himalayan Mountains, deep valleys, and richly flowing streams – but many of its water sources are contaminated with naturally occurring arsenic.

Half of the kids living here are underweight; 42% of deaths under age 5 are caused by malnutrition, which is exacerbated by dirty drinking water. Sanitation is also a major concern, as almost two-thirds of the population lives without toilets.
