Japanese Assistance for the Project for Improving Water Access in Sindhupalchowk District
We are pleased to announce that the grant contract for the Project for Improving Water Access in Sindhupalchowk District was signed in presence of the Ambassador of Japan to Nepal, His Excellence Masashi Ogwa, and Ms. Ayaka Ishikawa, Country Representative of ピースウィンズ・ジャパン Peace Winds Japan in Nepal.
The grant assistance will be used to rehabilitate 8 of the water supply schemes that were affected by the Nepal Earthquake 2015 in Thumpakhar VDC of Sindhupalchowk district in partnership with ISAP.
The project aspires to improve sustainable access to safe drinking water, increase the number of households with access to adequate water, and reduce labor for water access, along with promoting a participatory, bottom-up and sustainable approach to rebuilding.
We are very thankful to the people of Japan for their support to improve the lives of people in Nepal, especially in the aftermath of the earthquake. We look forward to continuing the long-established relationship between the People of Nepal and the People of Japan.
