After a water project launched in northern India in 2012 by Viva con Agua and Welthungerhilfe (WHH) achieved great results surprisingly quickly, the organisation expanded the project to include southern Nepal. Together with WHH and the local partner organisation, RRN (Rural Reconstruction Nepal), Viva con Agua now supports projects in rural areas of Nepal.
The project focuses strongly on local schools. Due to long ways to school, it is of uttermost importance that the schools are equipped with clean drinking water and sanitation facilities. Further, hygiene sensitization is particularly effective with children as they tend to adopt new behaviour quickly.
