2,000 children aged under 5 die each year in Nepal from preventable diseases - we tackle this problem by providing: 

HYGIENE AWARENESS for women’s groups

Women's rights have recently gained increased attention in Nepal and we address this issue with hygiene training. In rural Nepal some women's groups have accessed funding to build meeting rooms where they meet socially and participate in training programmes, 

Our training for mothers in good hygiene brings benefits for the whole family and the community.

HYGIENE AWARENESS for communities

  

 We help families to build their own toilets , but many of the people are unaware of basic hygiene requirements for maintaining good health. Our programme provides hygiene education to the beneficiaries of the toilet building programme. We encourage at least one family member to attend training and become a hygiene champion for the family.

CLEAN WATER for families

For children in developed countries, diarrhoea will usually pass within five to seven days and will rarely last longer than two weeks. In Nepal it is one of the main causes of child deaths. We have provided 1,500 people with access to spring water which reduces the chance of contracting water borne diseases.

Providing clean drinking water prevents disease and is essential for hydration which also helps with learning.

TOILETS for families

We want children and their families to remain healthy, so  Resolve International has worked with local partners in Nepal to provide the means for families to build their own toilets by their homes. Construction training and materials are provided to the families who contribute their own labour to dig the pit, carry the materials and construct the toilet building.

     

Case Study

TOILETS for schools

School attendance increases for girls when there is a school toilet If a school does not have toilets then open ground is the only option, which creates disease. Resolve International has helped three schools to build toilets and renovated toilets at another school. One school girl commented, 'we no longer have to worry about people watching us when we go to the toilet'.

    

Case Study

TOILETS for womens groups

In England most public buildings have toilets available. In rural Nepal some women's groups have accessed funding to build meeting rooms where they meet socially and participate in various training programmes, but they do not have toilets. Resolve International has built toilets for twelve women's groups so far.
