The main objective of the project was to build capacity of local WASH implementing organizations in the earthquake-affected communities of Dolakha, Sindhupalchwok, Kavre, Nuwakot& Dhadingdistricts. One of the objectives of the project was households using appropriate water treatment options. As a first step, households must have knowledge about the quality of water they are consuming. To facilitate this, simple, accessible & affordable quality testing services are essential. Water quality testing services at the local level ensure that community members understand the quality of their water, which then motivates them to use household water treatment options for safe drinking water.
