The AGH social foundation is a non profit making government registered organisation. It was established in 2010 and with the aid of dedicated volunteers strives constantly to improve the life chances of the poorest people in Nepal. To give some idea of the deprivation that exists especially in the mountains, 77% of the people of Nepal have to live on less than 2$ a day and in many rural areas farmers cannot manage to grow enough food to feed themselves for the complete year.

Water supply and sanation

Wed, 13 Jul, 2011

By providing a supply of safe drinking water this also gives the community the ability to introduce sanitation into the community.

A supply of running water in the community allows more time for productive work be it agriculture or the fledgling tourist industry. So this is an important goal for the AGH foundation.

The Rural Water Supply and Sanitation Fund Development Board (RWSSFDB) is promoting demand-driven community based approach in water supply and sanitation sector in Nepal by mobilizing non-governmental and private sector organizations in assisting communities to implement water supply and sanitation schemes. The AGH foundation is pleased to be associated with this programme.

In rural Nepal, women's shoulder the burden of managing the total water demand of a household. Disparity on traditionally prevailing gender role has continuously forcing them to fetch water, take care of laundry, wash dishes, clean house, prepare meals, rare and care children as well as often be a helping hand on farming. As a primary provider of water their role in the project is enhanced through active participation in all aspects and activities, including in decision making process.

Ultimate goal of the foundation is to improve the health of communities through bringing potable water closer to their homes and promoting hygiene and sanitation activities. This will result in better hygiene and sanitation practices of a community.
