A Gift of Clean Water

$25 will purchase of a set of replacement filters for a school's water filter kits. There is no water in the homes here. A few villages have a community tap, usually at the school. Kids carry water from the tap or from the river. In past years many children were sickened by contaminated drinking water, especially during the rainy season when water from the hillsides, littered with dung, collects in the water courses. Clean water really does save lives.

The Upper Dolpo, on Nepal's border with Tibet, is one of the highest, harshest, inhabited places on the planet. The Dolpo people are culturally rich but they are poor subsistence farmers and a changing climate is pushing them deeper into poverty. Without help from the international community their schools would close. The schools only teach to grade 5 or 6 yet they bring life changing opportunities not just to the children and their families, but to the entire community.
