Community toilet building project is for those local communities and families who do not have access to clean toilet facilities. Lack of proper toilet facilities results in sickness and diseases that could otherwise be prevented.
We are working with these unprivileged communities to construct toilet facilities for those most in need. This project is a necessity but becomes costly very quickly. VCD Nepal totally relies on volunteers admission fee contribution to run all its projects so don’t have sufficient fund access to build toilets. But we encourage people to raise some fund to build
Once you complete this project and handover to the community it creates a long term impact for the most marginalized communities – long after construction is finished and you have come and gone. We hire local professional builders but if you have a little knowledge on building would be bonus. You can help builder or other team member to dig a hole for toilet, prepare building material, set toilet ring and roof. Besides this, volunteers are encouraged to teach and share ideas about how to maintain personal hygiene to the local communities (For example: how to wash hand properly, cleaning toilet etc).The community toilet building project runs all year round and available for 1 to 12 weeks.
Generally you will wake up around 7am and your typical day starts with a cup of morning tea. Main meal is served around 9:30am. After meal head to the toilet project. You will be working 5 to 6 days a week. Saturday is the day off. But it really depends on you. Our community toilet building project are flexible on starting and ending hours.
In your free time before and after school please support your family in household and agricultural works. It is the best way to immerse in to Nepali culture, learn language and Play and do educational activities with community kids is so much fun. They absolutely Love it.
