Support our work in Nepal

During our visit, we met the communities of Dolakha and saw a glimpse of what clean water, decent toilets and good hygiene will mean to them. Our work there is ongoing and due for completion later in 2022. You can explore some more detailed information about the project in the Foundations for the Future project proposal (PDF).

A final word from Tripti Rai, Country Director

I am very grateful for your support for our work in Nepal. Together with our partners and communities, we're continuing our work to get vital water services and good toilets to people in Dolakha, while adapting to the challenges posed by climate change, natural hazards and the COVID-19 pandemic.

We work with and for people from marginalised communities, ensuring sustainable access to clean water, decent toilets and good hygiene. Your participation in this virtual tour has provided much-needed encouragement and a morale boost to drive positive changes in people's lives.

I would like to thank you for your generous support. Although we are experiencing a trying phase with the pandemic, we sincerely hope that the situation will improve, and that one day you will be able to travel to Nepal too.
