After months of hard work, the community of Sajbote Siruwani have something amazing to celebrate – the arrival of clean, safe water.

Until now, Sajbote Siruwani had one of the lowest levels of water and sanitation coverage in the whole of Nepal.

But thanks to your support, and the hard work and dedication of our partner organisation Nepal Water for Health, clean water from a natural spring now runs to taps throughout the community, giving more than 300 people the chance of a brighter future.

Watch the amazing moment the taps were turned on for the very first time – and find out how the community got here by following their journey below.
