Khaireni is a small village of thirty-two houses locked on the side of a Nawalparasi Hill. They are at an hour and a half by walking distance from any other village and do not have an easy access to water. The villagers in Khaireni have to walk half an hour to the nearest drinking water streams and carry the water back to their homes. The women lift thirty liters of water on their hips or on their heads, back and forth almost ten times a day and the younger children, up to twenty liters. During the dry season, from November to June, there is no possible way to irrigate the fields, so the water that the villagers carry is used for cooking, cleaning, drinking and for the cattle only. Khairenis live from the work in the fields but they can only grow during the monsoon, wasting the rest of the year.
Running water in this village would mean the possibility of creating an irrigation system from their homes to the fields and growing vegetables all year long. This would be an opportunity to sell their products to other villages, implicating the end of their poverty. The water would be filtrated, improving the health of children and elderly, more subject to water related diseases. This water project has detrimental consequences impacting the fields of agriculture, health and the everyday life of these thirty-two families.
CASD-Nepal believes that for the project to be a success, the community has to get involve and participate in it’s realization. That is why they choose to help by digging and implementing the pipes themselves, with the help of our engineers and local workers. This team effort will forge forever lasting bonds of friendship and trust.
CASD-Nepal commits through out its actions to make it possible for the community, with the precious help of our donors and the participation of the villagers, to install a running water system. For this project to become reality, we need to raise $7.189,25. This amount will be fully raised by our generous donors. Which means that every dollar you donate is a step closer to helping our villagers and it entirely goes to our project.
To achieve this running water project, our engineers calculated that 5500 meters of pipes, sand, cement, etc. has to be built, costing $7.189,25, which means that :
