PROVIDING WATER, SANITATION AND HYGIENE SERVICES SINCE 1992

We are a Nepal based non-governmental organization established with a vision of improving the quality of life of all Nepali people through safe water, sanitation and hygiene (WASH) services. Since establishment in 1992, we have stood firmly on our commitment of developing and strengthening WASH services in both rural and municipal areas of the country. And we won’t stop until everyone in the country, irrespective of gender, class, ethnicity or belief, is able to access their right to WASH.
