Nepal is a beautiful country with amazing people working to end the world water crisis. Statistics regarding the world water crisis are available and relevant and could be stated eloquently right here!
Children in Nepal sometimes travel up to two kilometers to reach a water source. Wine To Water began working in Nepal in the Dahakhani and Madi regions after a massive earthquake wreaked havoc throughout the country in 2015. Since then, Wine To Water implemented the first part of a three-year process to provide clean water. In the past year we’ve focused on spring water collection and have worked on providing sanitation and hygiene education to local people. To alleviate the effort it takes to search for clean water, the Wine To Water team uses borehole wells, solar pumps, and tap stands, which we connect to every home. We look forward to ensuring the communities in Dahakhani and Madi are equipped to maintain filters, have a source of community income, and are trained to perform necessary hygiene and sanitation practices

Our hope is that in doing so you’ll come to understand why we firmly believe that when we stand shoulder to shoulder and work hard together, we can resolve the Global Water Crisis—one person at a time.
“Our community might be poor in finances, but we are rich in love and heart,” said local resident Yogendra. “Everyone is willing to help.”
Field Note #159: To My Unexpected "Didi"
I’ve been meaning to write this for a while, as it’s been months since we left the Dahakhani village in Nepal on our way back to America. That said, my experience there is one that I won’t soon forget.
When we arrived in Nepal, I had no idea what expect. I was simply taking it all in. Day by day, as we worked in the village, things started to change.
The hustle and bustle of my everyday life back home and all the little things that I would let stress me out seemed so far away. Here, we worked each day with purpose.
We dug alongside villagers who would push their shovels into the mud with their bare feet, lifting it up and throwing it aside in one quick, swift motion all for one reason: to bring clean water to their family or to their neighbors’ families. . .
