THE STORY:

Can you imagine life without a toilet?

Can you imagine you (or your children) playing in a school yard and stepping into body waste that is literally scattered everywhere because there is simply no choice?

Disease through lack of hygiene in Nepal is tragic. The district of Jitpur in the Kathmandu Valley is made up of 9 villages, 6 of which do not have access to toilets. Through fund raising we have managed to construct 95 + toilets in the Village of Dadagaun and now desperately need to continue this construction in neighbouring villages.

Toilets are not built to western world standards, but they do have 4 walls, a roof, a porcelain squat toilet and are connected to septic tanks. Villagers lucky enough to have one of these loos all need to be educated in hygiene and cleanliness of their toilets – a fact quite strange to our culture.

However, a toilet to these people, who are hard workers with many trying to get their children educated to ensure a better future for future generations, is an absolute luxury of which they are extremely grateful and proud.

Our dream is to fund a further 35 toilets in a village of the Jitpur district by the end of the year and help to eradicate disease, and early death through lack of sanitation, in a country that offers no financial support to its people.

Please consider donating, every little bit helps.  Thank you!
