Water Project in Bupsa 2016
Bupsa is a village in the region called Solo Khumbu, in the Himalayan Mountains. The village has around 120 houses and one of the major problems is the water supply. The inhabitants are forced to walk for hours since they do not have access to clean water.
This is what Adventure Alternative (Nepal) in cooperation with Moving Mountains wants to change.
A group of seven students of the Leeds University in the UK has started the project in March/April. The students have raised money over the last couple of month and have then been helping in Bupsa to install a water system. The project was a great success. They managed to get clean tap water to 12 houses!
The Chairman of Moving Mountains Trust Nepal, Ang Chhongpa Sherpa, sees the end of the project in 2019. One house is provided with water in a half day, with the help of three people working hard on it.
Nevertheless, the project is not completed yet, there are still 108 houses without access to safe drinking water. It is a long term project to bring clean water to all the 120 houses in the village and the Leeds RAG team have made a fantastic start.
To be able to continue this great project, we need all the help we can get! You get the opportunity to see the beautiful nature of Nepal and the surrounding mountains, but also the life and the kindness of the Sherpa family in the Himalayan villages.
To successfully complete the water project, tanks and pipe liness from the tanks to the houses still need to be installed. All of this, the workers and the material, cost a lot of money. If you do not have the time to help directly on site, a donation would already help a lot to continue the project!
Having access to clean drinking water is essential for a good health and not even a question for us, it is just always there, running of a tap. Let us make a change and give the villages the life standard we can enjoy.
