Putali Tamang (66 years old) lives in Lama Tole – 4, Ngarkot VDC in Bhaktapur District. She is compelled to drink water from unprotected source. She finds difficulty in transporting even a bucket of water to home from the source due to her old age. During rainy season there is enough water at the source but the water gets muddy and hazy, while in dry season, volume of water flow gets low and takes hours even to fill up a small water bucket. It took half an hour to fill the mug seen in the picture to her at the source. She lives alone and doesn’t get support from her son in collecting drinking water though he lives next to her home.

Dambar Kumari Pulami – 69, Tosramkhola VDC, Sindhuli District Nepal: “My grand children's future will be much better as the clean water is accessible near home. They will not have hard life like us. Now they know lots of things about sanitation and hygiene. I can also tell them to wash hands before eating and after playing. The new generation is also very quick to grasp and understand these issues.” WaterAid/ Mani Karmacharya, February 2013
