PROVIDING ACCESS TO WATER EMPLOYEES IN NEPAL
A water supply line for the village
The villagers had previously carried water from a faraway well to their homes. In order to save them this arduous walk in future and enable them to access this essential resource directly from taps in front of their homes, the volunteers had to dig a trench for the new water supply line between the spring and the village. Equipped with pickaxes and shovels, the volunteers spent two weeks helping the local village community dig trenches, install the new water supply line and build a reservoir tank. By the time the project was completed, some 7,500 metres of pipe material had been installed and construction of the tank was completed.
