Community Development: Disaster Recovery
Summary: This project will reconstruct and maintain a clean drinking water supply for 75 families living in Mulpani village, Kathmandu District, Nepal. The water supply is located in a public place where people come and get drinking water and wash clothing.
Current Situation: The existing water supply was damaged during the earthquake in April/May 2015. The pipe which supplies water needs replacement. Ongoing maintenance of the water source is also necessary which will include installation of a filtration system and water storage tank. A water tap needs to be configured in such a way where everybody can use it.
This project will be managed by Rotarian Sudip Koirala, President-Elect-Nominee of the Rotary Club of Rudramati, Kathmandu in Rotary International District 3292 Nepal and Bhutan. Sudip Koirala visited the Estes Valley Sunrise Rotary Club and presented a compelling program on the need to refurbish this pipe. Our club spoke to the Rotary Club of Fort Collins, After Work, which has worked with Sudip since 2009 and has successfully completed over 40 projects with Sudip in Nepal. We learned that Sudip is very conscientious and always completes these projects. Some of our club members visited with Sudip and discussed this project at length. We learned that this project, which was selected by Sudip personally, will provide clean and safe drinking water to a small village that suffered damage from the devastating 2015 earthquake. That particular location is just outside of the Didi Foundation, an organization that provides vocational education for the Nepalese. It is also an area where women can socialize and support one another in challenging times. We are confident that this project will be a success as Rotaractors, Ganesh Khatri and Tara Guragain, will assist in completing this project.
This project is "Paid". This means that the funds from the district have been issued. This project is now being ready for implementation. When this is done, a report needs to be uploaded on the project page and the "Reported" button needs to be clicked, then the status of the project will be changed to "Reported".
