Nepal Water Project

25hours Hotels supports Viva con Agua in water projects in the project area Chitwan. From every online booking via the 25hours website, 50 cents or centimes will go to benefit the WASH (WAter, Sanitation, Hygiene) projects.

748 million people worldwide have no access to clean drinking water. More than 2.5 billion people do not have adequate sanitation. These figures moved the former FC St. Pauli soccer player Benjamin Adrion so much that he founded the association Viva con Agua in 2006. In cooperation with Welthungerhilfe, the latter is committed to international water projects.

After a water project launched in 2012 by Viva con Agua and Welthungerhilfe (WHH) in northern India met with great success surprisingly quickly, the organization expanded the project and reached southern Nepal. In the meantime, Viva con Agua supports projects in rural Nepal together with WHH and the local partner organization RRN (Rural Reconstruction Nepal).

One focus of the project in Chitwan is on schools in the project area. The partly very long ways to school of the children make it all the more important that the supply with clean drinking water and the access to toilets are ensured at schools. In addition, hygiene education is particularly useful in schools, as children learn and implement new hygiene behaviors most quickly.


The current projects in Nepal, India, Ethiopia, Burkina Faso and Uganda range from latrine construction to well drilling. Briefly also titled WASH projects: Water, Art, Sanitation and Hygiene. The always accompanying goal is water for all, all for water.

Well networked, the association creatively solicits donations. The collection of cup deposits at 140 festivals, the proceeds from the sale of its own mineral water brand Viva con Agua and fundraising runs are just a few of the ways in which the association raises money for a good cause. To date, Viva con Agua has been able to raise around 12 million euros to finance water projects and thus sustainably improve the living conditions of more than three million people.
