Livelihood Improvement of Tharu Community

Indreni Rural Development Centre (IRDC) Nepal runs a Rural Water Supply and Sanitation program aimed at improving access to clean water and sanitation facilities in rural communities in Nepal. The program focuses on building community-led water supply and sanitation systems, promoting hygiene and sanitation behaviors, and providing training and capacity building support to local organizations and communities.

The Rural Water Supply and Sanitation program works on various components of water supply and sanitation, including:

  1. Community-led water supply systems: IRDC works with local communities to build water supply systems, such as wells, springs, and rainwater harvesting systems, that are managed and maintained by the communities themselves. This promotes sustainability and ownership of the water supply systems.

  2. Sanitation facilities: The program also works on improving access to sanitation facilities, such as latrines and handwashing stations, in rural communities. This helps in reducing the incidence of waterborne diseases and promoting hygiene and sanitation behaviors.

  3. Hygiene promotion: IRDC conducts hygiene promotion campaigns, focusing on promoting healthy behaviors such as handwashing, safe water handling, and safe disposal of waste. This helps in preventing the spread of diseases and improving overall health outcomes.

  4. Capacity building: The program provides training and capacity building support to local organizations and communities, including training on water supply and sanitation system management, hygiene promotion, and behavior change communication.

  5. Advocacy and policy support: IRDC advocates for policies and programs that prioritize access to clean water and sanitation facilities at the local and national levels. This includes working with government agencies to incorporate water and sanitation into their plans and policies.

Overall, the Rural Water Supply and Sanitation program aims to improve access to clean water and sanitation facilities, promote hygiene and sanitation behaviors, and build the capacity of communities and organizations to manage and maintain water supply and sanitation systems in rural communities in Nepal. The program emphasizes the importance of community participation and empowerment in all aspects of water supply and sanitation.
