Introduction 

Our ambitious project seeks to bring water access, sanitation and menstrual hygiene management to three high hilltop schools and surrounding communities in Nepal's Gulmi District. With an anticipated timeframe of April 2020 to October 2022, this project will bring water access to more than 1,031 school children and reach over 4,640 indirect beneficiaries with improved WaSH practices.

Report 

Solar water pumping will benefit not just the schools' 1031 pupils, but the 54 strong teaching staff of the schools and the communities in the immediate vicinity of the school, which will have access to sustainable water in their homes. In total, 1,571 people will benefit directly, and a further 4,640 people will benefit indirectly, through education on WaSH. This will improve the level of hygiene in the area whilst giving the girls a sense of empowerment as they take control of their lives. We have managed to raise $511 so far but still have a long way to go.

Introduction 

Girls across Gulmi tell us the same thing; they cannot attend school when menstruating. Countless schools in this beautiful and remote region sit high above their water source, therefore, there is no water in the taps and no way of flushing a toilet. For several days a month, young girls who already face a cultural battle to enrol in school, are forced to stay home while male peers continue to attend. This directly contributes to gender inequality and keeps girls at lower levels of education.

Report 

This project aims to make education inclusive to 1,031 children attending three schools in Gulmi, we support 3 schools without water to purchase and install solar-powered water pump bringing clean, affordable and sustainable water supply. We will install hygiene and sanitation infrastructure designed to meet the needs of girls, boys and children with disabilities. We will also include a hygiene and sanitation awareness campaign which is driven, designed and delivered by young people themselves.

COVID-19 has halted a lot, more than I think many of us could ever imagine, and potentially more than we will ever truly know. In Nepal, we started the year off with a bang. Ready to support three schools with getting access to safe and sustainable drinking water. With fundraising initatives and planns being drawn up we were hopeful to be able to contribute to SDG 6 Clean Water and Sanitation. But schools soon closed down, and individual donations dropped significantly. This all during the time when the communities need us the most. Never before have the evidence been so clear that clean water and sanitation save lives as well as livelihoods. But to make this happen we need you, our loyal supporters. By raising funds to provide clean water at 3 schools we will reach over 1000 people, covering over 3 separate communities.

To stop the spead of COVID-19, clean hands is one of the key ways to contian the virus. However, 52% of Nepals population are still living without clean water and soap in their homes, increasing the risk of spreading the virus. This is a total of 3,5 million people without access to clean water. In addition, the nation is suffering from poor health monitoring processes; movement of migrant workers; insufficient equipment to deal with a global health crisis. Thus, to tackle the root causes and ensure preparedness for the future, providing access to water at small communities will have a direct impact, and reach those in need. 

By providing a safe water supply at schools, it will not only ensure that the pupils who attend school remain safe and healthy, but will further encourage families to send their students to school. This is essential at a time where many families feel that they want to keep their children close to limit interactions with people, but also utilise them as labour at a time of struggle.

However, it is time to action change. It is time for us all to pull together and ensure that each child can safely attend school. Not only to manage COVID-19 and its side effects, but to encourage school attendance and break the cycle of poverty.

Dear Supporters,



This is a new project and we are funding 1031 children attending 3 schools in Gulmi and supporting 3 schools without water to purchase and install solar-powered pumps bringing clean, affordable and sustainable water supply. Additionally we will install hygiene and sanitation infrastructure designed to meet the needs of girls, boys and children with disabilities.  



This will directly contribute to the United Nation Sustainable Development Goals( UN SDG’s) 3 Good Health and Well-being, UN SDG 4 Quality Education and UN SDG 6 Clean Water and Sanitation.



The year started off well and we were gaining some momentum in reaching our funding targets but COVID-19  has delayed some of the progress we’ve made. Due to COVID-19 restrictions in Nepal the project start date has been pushed to January 2021 and we remain optimistic and fulfilling the needs of this community. To date with your generous donations we have raised $511 but still have a way to go to reach our targets and give the community in Nepal the basic right to access clean water and have a quality education. 



To all our supporters, fundraisers and donors. We can’t begin to tell our gratitude we have as you not only inspire us more but you’ll forever change the lives of the surrounding communities in Nepal’s Gulmi District.



A very big thank you for the GVI Trust!
