What We Do

  1. Infrastructure Development (water related)

Besides many others, SAPPROS is rich with years of experience in water component viz: rural drinking water supply, small irrigation, multiple use water systems, water resource management activities for raising income of the poor specially focusing women of rural remote areas of Nepal. It emphasizes on the development of productive and context-sensitive infrastructures which not only help to generate income but also least threatening to the local environment.

Since its establishment in 1991, a total of 600 drinking water supply systems have been constructed under various projects. It has benefited 22,973 households. Community has participated about 13.46% out of total USD 2.90 million. It has largely reduced the drudgery of workload of women and remarkably improved personal, household and environmental sanitation. Most of the schemes have been linked to household kitchen garden for producing fresh vegetables.

 

Likewise, a total of 369 hybrid systems have been constructed with USD 0.63 million in which community has contributed 8.97% of the total. These systems have provided irrigation facility to more than 131 ha of land. Besides that, it has helped a total of 558 surface water irrigation systems, 348 stand alone type of water harvesting tanks, 536 sprinklers, 477 hand tube wells, 19 cycle pumps, 33 low cost drip schemes were also implemented with a combined total of more than USD 1.87 million that included a community contribution of USD 0.16 million.
