  • 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.

  • What It Cost

    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.
