Nepal Water for Health (NEWAH) is an NGO in Nepal w
orking towards clean drinking water, hygiene
promotion and sanitation (WASH). They achieve this
by working closely with communities in 51 districts
across the country building the people’s capacity t
o realise their rights to water and sanitation, and
access to the required infrastructure.
EWB volunteers have worked with NEWAH over the year
s to create innovative approaches to WASH
challenges, develop water safety plans and engage t
he community in the processes. EWB is also assistin
NEWAH with a climate change adaptation program and
a catchment hydrology, groundwater recharge and
rainwater harvesting program.
In 2014-2015 EWB is partnering with NEWAH for the E
WB Challenge. The EWB Challenge focuses on hill top
communities in the hill region of the Gorkha Distri
ct. The village of Sandikhola has been chosen as a
representative community of the villages in the reg
ion, as a way for students to better visualise life
in this
district. The design solutions, however, should be
transferable to all hill top communities.
In 2013 EWB held a workshop with NEWAH staff in the
ir regional office in Bharatpur. During this worksh
seven broad design areas were discussed and resulte
d in design projects being identified that NEWAH, a
the communities they work with, are either working
on at the moment or wishing to work on in the futur
These projects are outlined in this design brief. F

Challenge website at:
All of the student design reports that are submitte
d to the EWB Challenge for review will be given to
NEWAH. NEWAH are excited to receive these reports a

The EWB Challenge is a fantastic opportunity for st
udents to learn about and understand a wonderfully

Nepal. It is an opportunity to learn, not just abou
