Review: Building up Healthier Communities in Karnali, Nepal 2008-2011


Front page: Building up Healthier Communities in Karnali, Nepal

Since the inception of Mission East WASH activities in Nepal in 2008, access to clean water and better hygiene practices has significantly improved. The reduction in time for fetching water has reduced the work load of women, enabling them to provide better care for their children. Additionally, the improvement in hygiene behaviours and availability of safe drinking water reduced the prevalence of water borne diseases which was the case before the implementation of the project. KIRDARC, the local implementing partner made it possible to enhance access to water, hygiene and sanitation promotion by utilizing its organizational capacity and experience including knowledge on socio-economic profiles of the communities.
