The NR Foundation Nepal and the Bendigo Rotary Club has cordially worked for providing a sustainable source of drinking water to Kakani village in Nuwakot district. Kakani water project launched in 2013 and finished in 2014.The project able to construct 20,000 liters of water reservoir for eighteen houses with a reliable source of water. The Foundation had supervised and supplied the materials for construction work.
Whole work was done with the participation of Local villagers.
Before, the villagers have to walk for an hour to fetch water. It was not only difficult but time consuming. Now, this water system makes them easy to get enough water for their daily household purposes.

Simple Water System in Okhaldunga.
In 2013 the NR Foundation Nepal, in conjunction with Bendigo Rotary Club, was pleased to be able to supply water to a village in Okhaldunga, a remote area of Nepal. A simple, low maintenance system was installed, that enabled up to fifty households to access clean and abundant water very easily.
This system supplies each household with enough water for their cooking, drinking, animals and gardens at a cost of less than $US40 per household. The villagers built 60,000 liters water holding tank with water piped down to each household. Building materials and expertise were supplied by the NR Foundation Nepal. We now plan with the help and generosity of the Bendigo Rotary Club of Australia to expand this project to other villages.

Water project is the major ongoing project carried out by NRF. We have worked together with the Bendigo Rotary Club in Victoria Australia to provide sustainable solutions in areas of mutual interests. Through the tireless work of Julie Sloan, the member of the Bendigo Rotary Club, we have been able to acquire funding to carry out our ongoing water project in many remote villages of Rasuwa, Okhaldunga and Kakani district.
We motivate local human resources and supply pipe, cement and the other essential material under the supervision of our engineer to carry out the work for the project. About 100 households have been benefited by our programs. Our system supplies each household with enough water for their cooking, drinking, animals and gardens.
