Chepuwa Integrated Rural Sanitation Project (CIRSP) (Sep 2012-Aug 2015)

The CIRSP was implemented from September 2012 to August 2016 in Chepuwa VDC of Sankhuwasava District. It aimed at improving rural sanitation and hygiene in a sustainable way; it has been completed successfully as a model rural integrated programme. The success and acceptance of RDDW, and the local demand for similar programme interventions, motivated both donors and EcoHimal to further support for the rural un-reached communities, and replication of the project in Chepuwa and Hatiya villages is being considered: a detailed base line survey was completed during May/June 2016.  Background data is provided in a publication of the donor organization here:NepalHilfe Aruntal & Eco Himal

 

The programme was funded by the Nepal Hilfe Aruntal (http://nepalhilfe.av-badleonfelden.at/), the Upper Austria Government (www.land-oberoesterreich.gv.at), the Austrian Development Agency (ADA) with funds deriving from the Austrian Development Cooperation  (www.entwicklung.at): implementation was undertaken by Eco Himal Austria (www.ecohimal.org)

 

The programme has positively changed the socio–cultural scenario of the VDC and this is evident in the behavior, attitude and support of the local people.
