OUR PROJECTS

2016 Kabilash, Nepal project team.

CURRENT PROJECTS

We believe in what we are doing and our passion is backed-up by contributions made by each of our Board Members. Our Board Members cover 100% of any overhead or organization administrative costs so 100% of all donations go directly towards our project efforts.

Nepal Oct 2018

We will make our third visit to the Nuwakot District of Nepal in October 2018, and (4) travelers will join us on this trip (cost is approximately $3,900 per person). This travel opportunity offers a unique chance for people to see the results of our work up-close and to experience the culture of Nepal.

Working through Water For Small Villages, Inc. last year, our Nepal project was successful in providing water to the 1,000 residents of Aapchour. The people from Aapchour then went down river and helped the people in the next village of Dhokare Bari. This October 2018, we will work with the people of Dhokare Bari to assess their water issues, repair the broken water pump, and install a water tank to provide water to the people in the village. We are working to raise $11,000 for 400 meters of HDPE water pipe, material to build a 1,500 gallon water storage tank, labor to repair the solar array, airfare for 3 team members, room and board, in-country transportation, and water test kits.

PROJECTS BEING CONSIDERED

We are always ready to consider new projects. Our Clean Water Team reviews project new project requests and suggestions. We have a method for assessing suggested projects, and a 5-step process for developing our projects. After a project is accepted we develop a detailed plan, we start our fundraising efforts, and then when the funds are available we get it done. We have no overhead costs and we have a team of volunteers ready to go, so it's just a matter of raising the funds to execute a project.

OUR PROJECT SELECTION METHODOLOGY

Our method for selecting projects is to first assess the needs of the community and assess our ability to offer a solution. If approved, It becomes an approved pending project. Once a project is approved, we incrementally add more detail to do a detailed assessment. The project team works remotely with the community via email, text message, or phone to discuss possible solutions and assess the community's ability to own and maintain a water system. Once we have enough details, we design a solution based on available materials, local traditions, and the most suitable technology. Finally, we put together a detailed plan and a budget. Once the funds are available (fundraising must take place), we schedule then execute the project. We typically only do fundraising for specific projects. We only incur costs and expenses when we are executing a project, so we don't do general or non-specific fundraising for our organization.
