11. Sanitation Program in Lapilang VDC, Dolakha
Educate the Children, Nepal intends to build 400 toilets
in Lapilang VDC, in Dolakha where the majority of the inhabitants are
Thamis, one of the most disadvantaged ethnic communities in Nepal.
International Rotary Foundation is considering funding USD 35,000, out
of the estimated USD 70,000 required to implement the project. However,
it stipulates that the International fund be matched by local fund.
Local community contribution (through provision of unskilled labor and
raw material) will be generating the largest portion of the local fund,
and ETC, Nepal itself will be contributing the management cost. In
addition, some amount of matching amount fund is needed and after
considering the request from ETC, Nepal, New ERA has offered a grant of
Rs. 60,000 (Sixty Thousand Rupees) from its Community Development
Support Fund for the program.
