Further development of municipal WASH systems through technical support
Viva con Agua has been active in the Chitwan region since 2015, and the previous project supported the construction of 32 new water systems that provided safe drinking water to 775 households through private tap connections. In addition, 597 households gained access to safe drinking water through public standpipes. Through the WASH plans developed in the process, 50 additional locations of vulnerable populations without access to safe water were identified in the target communities. In addition, the establishment of mini-laboratories to test drinking water quality is a top priority to ensure good water quality and compliance with water safety plans.
By permanently improving the WASH situation (WASH stands for water, sanitation and hygiene), Viva con Agua e.V. aims to improve the living conditions of around 4,615 households in 2022 through various facilities.
