Although this is our first crowdfunding campaign, we have already built several large-scale water supply systems in Nepal and Cambodia with the support of our generous donors, ADOL monthly donation and our fundraising events. The projects are bringing clean water to countless beneficiaries!
Nepal Gravity Flow System
Location: Thewatar commune
Beneficiaries: 629 people
Nepal is known for its hilly terrain, villages in the Gorkha district are located at altitudes of 1,000-1,700 m. The earthquake in 2015 made the rugged roads villagers walk to fetch water even more dangerous. This project collects water from springs in the mountains and brings natural water resources to villagers' homes 7-10 kilometres away through water pipes. The project also includes hygiene and sanitation education, villager representatives pass on their knowledge to other villagers after trainings.
Cambodia Water Supply System
Location: Varin village
Beneficiaries: 2700 people
In more arid regions, groundwater is only available as deep as 40-60 meters. This water supply system uses machines to drill down 40-60 meters and stores water in a water tank tower. Then, water is connected to the villagers' homes through water pipes, villagers can have access to water in both dry and rainy seasons.
