Copyright © Water In Nepal 2017-2019

Welcome!

1. Almost 10 million people in Nepal are estimated to live on incomes between USD 1.9-3.2 a day

2. Despite boasting 6,000 rivers and 2.27% of the world’s water source, Nepal is ranked fifth with the poorest developed water system in the world 

3. Only an estimated 15% in Nepal are served with quality drinking water

4. Inefficient distribution of water-related infrastructure in rural areas results in women and children walking for hours on difficult terrain to retrieve their daily water

5. Rapid urbanization, population growth, and the changing climate are common causes of the urban water crisis. 

6. The supply of clean water is not enough to meet rising demands in both urban and rural areas. 

 

WHAT WE DO

We invest in water filtration and infrastructure projects to bring easier access to clean water to Nepalese government schools, villages, and institutions.

Our Approach

Transparency

We skip the third-party organizations to ensure we hand the appropriate amount of funds directly to the communities in need. 100% of donations are used to construct and maintain WIN's projects. 

Collaboration

We believe that the community's stewardship of their water infrastructure is an integral part of development. The Nepalese whom we work with help build and maintain their own projects. 

Project Updates

Throughout the year, our local guide sends us photo, written, and video updates of our past and current projects. We post these updates on our website and newsletter. 

Rehabilitation

While temporary relief is sometimes necessary, we strive to initiate projects that last for years to come. We rely on durable materials and locally-proven methods to construct our water infrastructure projects. 

Needs-Analysis

We stress the importance of open communication with the community and its stakeholders to recognize the root problem before discussing the best solutions.

Tailored Solutions

Often, the communities know what they need best. For every project we initiate, we ensure as best as possible that we fund solutions that will maximize the impact of each donated dollar.

 

PARTNER WITH US

Corporate partnerships open up amazing opportunities for us to continue working with the Nepalese in need and provide efficient solutions to their water crisis. 

MAKE A DONATION

Like any humanitarian effort, public donations are WIN's key to make previously impossible projects a reality. Help us continue to build water infrastructure that can last a lifetime.
