  • Need


    Nepal has abundant water supplies, but unfortunately water sources are often located some distance away from where people live.

    We discovered that women and children in rural Nepal can spend up to three hours every day just collecting water for drinking and cooking.

    Communities of less than twenty five households do not qualify for government backed schemes to supply water.


    Six small communities and a primary school have been identified for our next phase of water delivery. The project includes identifying a clean spring high in the hills, constructing a catchment tank, pipelines and storage tanks. Each village will receive several washing stations, where water can be collected and where people and clothes can be washed.

    This project will provide clean spring water for 1,264 people, their animals and crops.

  • Aims

    Aim 1

    To provide clean spring water to 6 small communities in rural Nepal.


    » We will work with a local organisation in Nepal and the villagers to install the water to their communities.

    Reduced time collecting water.

  • Impact


    Reduced time collecting water allows women and children more time for other activities.
    Water is important for hydration in school which improves learning.
    Clean water helps to prevent life limiting illness.


    The main risk to this project is not raising enough funds, we are hoping you can help us avoid this risk.


    We will report to donors directly if we have their contact details.
    We also publish project results on social media and our website.

  • Background


    Nepal, one of the world's poorest country, devastated by 2015 earthquakes and massive flooding in 2016 and 2017.
    This project is in the west of Nepal in Baglung District where we have worked for 11 years.
    The terrain is difficult; hills of up to 3,000 meters altitude.


    Rural subsistence farmers will benefit from this project.
    They are families who have never had direct access to water.
    Women and children walk up to 3 hours every day just to collect water.
    One primary school will also benefit.

  • Why Us?

    Why Us?

    Resolve International has worked in Baglung District for eleven years. We specialize in helping the poorest small communities which are not included in government schemes to provide water and sanitation.
    We have developed a successful partnership with a local organisation which has the required skills to deliver the project to budget.
