Water Research

Program Fees water research

Water is one of the most essential elements for all known forms of life.  Join VIN and our partners to conduct water research in Nepal and contribute solutions to Nepal’s urgent challenge.

Nepal’s water resources continue to be depleted.  While water sources dry up, flash floods destroy homes and lives.  And as existing water sources continue to be polluted with human, animal and chemical waste, remaining resources are inadequately managed.  Industry, agriculture and an increasing population are all in competition for Nepal’s precious water resources.

More than 4.4 million people in Nepal do not have access to safe drinking water, either through pipes, wells, rainwater or bottles.  Over two thirds do not have access to improved sanitation facilities.  Consequently, nearly 2000 Nepali children die from diarrhoea related diseases every year. No satisfactory preventive measurement like water research, public awareness, and sanitation programs are conducted from government and non-government sector.

VIN’s primary mission is the empowerment of marginalised communities, with a focus on women and children.  We have been working with JipurPhedi VDC since 2007 and have recently begun to build foundations with in the Everest region.  Much of our work takes place at community level, however, we seek to invest in solutions to national challenges, for without these the sustainability of our projects and the chance of community independence will be threatened.

VIN seeks volunteers or interns with qualifications or experience in water research, sanitation or related areas.  You will work with our partners, setting up meetings with local representatives to discuss water issues, raise awareness within the local community, carry out water research, uses, conflicts and sanitation and prepare a detailed report with accompanying recommendations for the alleviation of water problems.

During your placement you will live in a home-stay with a local Nepali family.  You will have the chance to become immersed in the culture and language and experience firsthand some of the challenges that the local communities face every day.
