Water and Sanitation


Imagine a K-12 school of 500 children and no working toilets. Children who live locally leave class and go home to use the toilet, while others simply go into the woods and fields. On top of that, the school receives only about 50 gallons of water a day from the village and has little capacity to store it. Thanks to the generosity of Daryl and Mary Demsko and their children in the USA, Shree Ram School now has 12 toilets for students and faculty with,as was stipulated by HealthCare Nepal,twice as many for girls as for boys. The Demsko family also contributed a rainwater collection system to help supply the bathrooms, as well as a 4,000 gallon tank to allow the school to stockpile water from the village system. The public health benefits for the school are clear, but they're also spreading throughout the village as children pester their parents for better toilets and more water at home!
