ARUBOT - a little village in Kavrepanchok district in Nepal, approx. 90km west of Kathmandu needs YOUR HELP!
Despite living in a country with many rivers, the villagers of Arubot have no proper water supply even though just 600 m below is a big river with plenty of water.
The approx. 400 villagers are dependent on the rainfall. It determines if the harvest is successful or if they starve.
Some of our porters come from Arubot and because of that we have learnt about their hard life and decided to help them building a proper water supply.
To be able to determine the best solution we have set up a 3-phase plan:
1) Pre-feasibility Study : Visit the site to get an overview
of water source, water demand (number of households etc),
height and distance requirements and available resources
(electricity etc). Make a short list of applicable
2) Detailed Feasibility Study: Get technical details about height, distance requirement. Get cost estimate of different technological options and accessories (pipes, tanks) and do a cost-benefit analysis. Discuss mode of operation with the community.
3) Implementation: Implement the selected technology and operation model.
The costs for Step 1 and 2 are about THB 70'000.-
Once we have the detailed feasibility study, we will be able to choose the best solution and start a second fundraiser to build the water supply.
Now we need YOU! Help the villagers of Arubot to get a reliable water supply. Something we westerners take for granted. Every support is HIGHLY APPRECIATED.
