The villages of Johor Mahankali, Tokha, Dharmasthali in the Kathmandu Valley each received ninety-one filters using a donation from Rotary International District 6380. The water was tested to find which filters were appropriate. It was determined that SBL (Solutions Benefiting Life) ceramic filter costing $7 each and Kanchan TM Biosand Filters costing $32 each were most suitable. The women’s association helped decide the amount each family would pay, which filter would be used and microbanking was established. The local schools participated in the hygiene awareness. The Rotarians worked closely with the villages during delivery, hygiene and filter training and followed-up with the villagers.
