Nepal Project Kickoff

Our Nepal project team returned from Kabilash, Nepal and reported on their successful trip. The team established relationships with Nepatap Pipe Co., hotels, driving companies, plumbing suppliers and the local community of Kabilash. Pipe was purchased and delivered and the locals installed over 1KM of pipe bringing clean drinking water into the village for the first time in over 12 months. The project will continue with construction of a water storage tank and more pipe installation to the remote sections of the village.

Florida Corporation

We are officially registered as a Florida non-profit corporation.

501(c)(3) Status

We are awaiting confirmation from the IRS for our 501(c)(3) non-profit status. This will allow us to give tax deductible receipts for donations and make us eligible to apply for grants. There are many non-profit non-governmental organizations we would like to partner with who have specialties in transportation, logistics, construction and distribution. We in turn would like to offer our expertise in carrying out projects with visible verifiable results.

  • What We Did

  • What We Learned

    We learned the people of Kabilash, Nepal are a close cooperative of people in need of assistance improving their access to clean drinking water. The villagers enthusiastically volunteered their services, access to land, on-hand supplies, and hospitality. The area has received no support since the 2015 earthquake. The school provides education to 440 students from the surrounding villages, some students walk 2 hours each way to attend class. The village is very remote and is only accessible by a steep dirt road 3 hours outside Kathmandu. Given the right contacts it is possible to execute a small project in 7-days.

    All funds donated were spent directly on the project. This includes the visit by our team, purchase of construction supplies, delivery, labor, parts and fittings. Our team is made 100% of volunteers who bring experience, skills and work side-by-side with the local poject team.

  • Costs

    The project consists of a two week onsite visit to assess the project in person, establish relationships, negotiate with vendors, appoint a local project team and project coordinator and purchase and deliver supplies. The pipe, valves, cement, concrete all cost $4,000. Cost for the onsite visit, transportation and room & board cost $4,500. Our team collected data, worked side-by-side with the local team to ensure appropriate construction and verify the results. We purchased $500 worth of items to bring back and use in our fundraising events scheduled for later this year where we hope to raise $10,000 to fund 6 additional pipe installations to the most remote areas of the village.

  • Data We Collected

    We sampled and tested water at public fountains. We collected GPS geographic data to establish elevations and locations of the project site, surrounding area and water test sites. We photographed and documented the surrounding area of the Kabilash village. We Collection contact information for pipe supplies, laborers, administrative contacts, hotels, supply vendors, transportation providors and local contacts.
