Our WASH project at Shree Chandra Jyoti has officially commenced!
A little bit from our Board of Directors regarding our latest endeavor:
A NEW PROJECT FOR NANA’S HOUSE
HNASW has identified another school that is in desperate need of help. Chandra Jyoti Primary School in Leknath, where we held our dental clinic last year, has lost its’ water supply. The old supply tank cracked during the earthquake and has not held water for almost six months. Children are bringing water from home to drink. Village women are hiking fifteen minutes up the hillside to haul water back to the school but it is inadequate to supply the toilet facilities or for hand washing. Again the surrounding forest is being used. Needless to say this has resulted in diminished hygiene and thus more illness among everyone at the school.
This project would significantly impact the quality of both education and health at the school. The proposal provides for new pipes to be run from the main supply line to a new reinforced holding tank designed to survive natural disasters. This tank would supply the toilet facilities and a potable water spigot to meet all the needs of the school. Nana’s House has the $3,000 in it’s general funds on hand to start the project immediately and it is projected to take two weeks for construction and two weeks drying time for the cement. We will post photos to the website as work progresses and upon completion.
Thank you again for your support in allowing us to serve the homeless and impoverished individuals of Nepal.
