Access to clean water improves sanitation; water-borne diseases decrease; children stay healthier & attend school more regularly: women and girls spend more time helping their families & engaging in productive activities. Since the 2015 earthquake Phortse village (population 469) in Nepal has been without access to clean water. Water sources dried up and the 7000-litre collection tank was damaged. They lost drinking water and water for growing food. The community asked Action for Nepal (AFN) for help. AFN is an in-country indigenous, community-centric non-profit organisation building healthy educated communities and emphasising community input and gender equity.
Support through RAWCS will mean improvement in health, food, income, education, sanitation, safety and empowerment.
