Program: Water, Sanitation and Hygiene (WASH) in Schools for Healthy Children


● To improve access to safe water, sanitation, and hygiene facilities in schools
● To promote healthy behaviours among school children and their families through hygiene education
● To reduce the prevalence of waterborne diseases and improve child health outcomes


Infrastructure Improvement: Improve the infrastructure of schools by providing access to safe water sources, and constructing gender-sensitive toilets, and handwashing facilities. The program would work with local communities to ensure that the infrastructure is appropriate and sustainable.

Hygiene Promotion: Develop and implement hygiene education programs for school children and their families. The program would focus on promoting handwashing, safe drinking water practices, and proper sanitation and hygiene practices.

Behaviour Change Communication: Develop and implement behaviour change communication campaigns to promote healthy behaviours among school children and their families. The program would use a variety of communication channels, such as posters, radio broadcasts, and community meetings.

Capacity Building: Build the capacity of teachers and school administrators to manage and maintain WASH facilities and promote healthy behaviours in school children. The program would provide training and support to teachers and school administrators to ensure that they have the necessary skills and knowledge to manage WASH facilities and promote healthy behaviours.

Monitoring and Evaluation: Establish a monitoring and evaluation system to measure the impact of the program and ensure that it is achieving its goals. The program would collect data on access to WASH facilities, hygiene behaviours, and child health outcomes, and use this data to inform program improvements.

Expected outcomes:
● Improved access to safe water, sanitation, and hygiene facilities in schools
● Improved hygiene behaviours among school children and their families, leading to reduce the incidence of waterborne diseases
● Improved child health outcomes, such as reduced absenteeism and improved cognitive development
● Increased capacity of teachers and school administrators to manage and maintain WASH facilities and promote healthy behaviours

Overall, this program would provide schools with the necessary infrastructure and support to promote safe water, sanitation, and hygiene practices, leading to improved child health outcomes and reduced incidence of waterborne diseases. The program would also build the capacity of teachers and school administrators to manage and maintain WASH facilities and promote healthy behaviours, contributing to the
sustainability of the program.

How to Volunteer for a Medical Mission in Nepal

Medical professionals or students will find plenty of opportunities for medical volunteering in Nepal. Healthcare options in Nepal are limited and not everyone has access to the care they need.

Volunteer in Nepal at a hospital and lend a hand to local doctors and nurses. Your help is especially needed in rural areas where access to health care is limited. Take a medical mission trip and learn what it's like to work in less-than-ideal circumstances and put your skills to the test.

Healthcare volunteer programs in Nepal are rewarding, to say the least. It won't be an easy experience, but it will save lives. Whether you have plenty of time or just 1-2 weeks, medical volunteering is perfect for short-term volunteers in Nepal.

All types of health volunteers can apply for health care programs. Nurses, midwives, doctors, or physiotherapists will all focus on community health and perform tasks that match your level of experience.

Health: Nurses, public health, paramedical professions, doctors


The two most common causes of death among Nepalese children are diarrhoea and respiratory diseases. The former is often caused by a lack of sanitation, which spreads intestinal diseases, and the latter by the use of open fires for indoor cooking.

We address these and other issues by educating communities and providing them with tools to improve sanitation and ventilation. Interventions included public health days in local schools, training sessions in women's and youth groups, and helping the community build
better sanitation facilities.

The Sylphi Nepal Foundation is going to start a program to build clinics and/or schools in the poorest villages in the different districts of Nepal.

SYLPHI FOUNDATION and Volunteering

The program of our Foundation is mobilized and will be present in province 3 of Bagmati, province 4 of Gandaki and province 5 of Lumbini.
This new project should improve the daily lives of patients. We propose a partnership with our Foundation for this program and we await the arrival of professional volunteers in Nepal.
Caregivers, therapists, and anyone affiliated with the health sector could accompany a patient. They provide medical follow-ups.
