Through water filter distribution & hygiene education in Nepal

WHY HYGIENE ?

Since 2008, 750,000 Southeast Asians have died from highly preventable diseases stemming from unhygienic conditions. Without proper personal hygiene, people are susceptible to a variety of ills, ranging from diarrhea to cholera. Cholera is a bacterial disease, endemic in Nepal, usually spread through contaminated water. It causes diarrhea and dehydration, left untreated it can be fatal in a matter of hours. Fortunately the solution is simple - Rehydration and prevention.

Education around personal hygiene practices can prevent unnecessary illness and elevate health and wellness across Nepal.

Currently, only 37% of Nepalese wash their hands and only 12% of those use soap, meaning that 4.4% of Nepalese practice proper bathroom hygiene. Simply hand washing with soap can reduce incidence of diarrhea by 45%. (Source : Nepal Water for Health )

Every year, 7,900 children die in Nepal from diarrheal diseases caused by dirty water and poor sanitation.

WHAT WE DO

Our main focus is to bring water filters to schools while also increasing awareness and promoting healthy habits.

We hold hygiene classes using material adapted from Unicef Wash Programs while distributing water filters and soap. The booklets are illustrated and translated into Nepalese.
