What is the project about?
Clean drinking water for Nepal!
Together with the community, we are building a water centre, providing over 5,000 people with clean drinking water.
Clean drinking water is a human right. Still, more than 2.3 million people in Nepal are lacking access to it. Besides bacteria and viruses, the water is often contaminated with highly poisonous metalloid arsenic, leading to severe long-term illnesses and conditions including skin lesions, diabetes and pulmonary and cardiovascular diseases. We want to make a change for the 5,000 people of Devgaun.
"Do not make the mistake of thinking that a small group of thoughtful, committed people cannot change the world; indeed it is the only thing that ever has."
Margaret Mead, American ethnologist
As a highly motivated team of students, we are working hand in hand with the local people of Devgaun to construct a high-tech water centre that can filter enough water for the entire village. Through our entrepreneurial approach to training Nepalese women to run the centre and sell the water for a minimal price, we ensure the sustainability and long-term success of our project. Through this, we will enable the local people to live a healthier life, create new jobs and raise awareness about the consequences of drinking contaminated water.
