Our founder, Narayan Shrestha, has been working hard over the last year to arrange the installation of two high-capacity water purification systems in eastern Nepal. We're happy to announce that last week the systems were installed in Khandbari and Chainpur. The unit in Khandbari will provide drinking water for the Surya School, the police and army bases, and the local hospital.

Each SunSpring water system produces 5,000 gallons of safe drinking water per day and is sustainably powered through sun and wind energy. The systems were donated by H2OpenDoors, a Rotary project based in California. A group from the SunSpring factory in Colorado joined Narayan to install the water purification systems, and Rotarian Jon Kaufman from H2OpenDoors traveled to Nepal to celebrate the installation.
