Sammamish Presbyterian Church - W|W Nepal Program Report- 2018


 January - June 2018

W|W Founder Doc Hendley takes part in the inaugural ceremony of the new water system in Riatole.

Thank you for your support of the Wine To Water Program in Nepal!

The team took the momentum from the project in Dahakhani and moved to the Madi Municipality. Wine To Water Nepal has partnered with the local government (Madi Municipality) to complete 6 water programs in 6 communities in the next 3 years.

The communities are identified and selected based on the communities lack of access to clean water, to ensure the communities that need the most help receive it. The first community Wine To Water worked with was Raitole. Phase I resulted in 71 new tap stands, one for each home. 

The project in Raitole started January 2018 and was completed in May 2018. The project was an extreme success in terms of how fast it was completed. All due to the hard work the community invested in the project. In Raitole a deep, solar powered borehole well was constructed, it pumps to a reserve tank connecting to each tap stand via lay pipe. 

The water system is complete, and post-construction training has been given to the community. The education helps ensure the community is empowered with the knowledge to have ownership of their water system. Raitole is finished and moving into phase 2. Phase 2 will include implementation of a WaSH technology, as the community is in need of latrines. Today, each home in Raitole, over 320 residents now have access to clean water.    

In addition to the completed project in Riatole, Wine To Water in Nepal distributed 42 filters, impacting over 379 people effected by natural disasters, and conducted Hygiene lessons in local public schools.

While the work continues in Raitole, new projects are being identified in conjunction with the Municipality.

"The second project for 2018 will be coming soon, and Wine To Water Nepal continues to serve alongside their fellow Nepali’s with dignity and humility. The program is truly dedicated to serving the people of Nepal and fighting the water crisis." - Pavan Mudiam W|W International Fellow

Field Note #185: The New Projects in Nepal

These communities are nestled deep in the jungles of Nepal, on either side of a seasonal river. In areas as close to river beds as these, there are always complications. For instance, the river caused water damage in both communities during Nepal’s monsoon season.
