Reeling the Family of Four

We are less than four weeks away from our annual A Day to Share event, and we would like to take this opportunity to talk a bit more about one of the partners we are helping this year, the Nepal-based NGO RIDS-Nepal, whose main task is installing and implementing the basic pillars of decent life in rural households.

Here you can find a video explaining how the Family of Four system is put in place, and the improvements occuring in every aspect of the Nepalese's lives: the improved hygiene thanks to the pit latrines and a proper system of drainage for drinking water, a homely space where they can breathe freely thanks to the smokeless metal stoves and the electricity that allows them to bypass the use of jharro wood, which is very smokey and therefore very damaging to the lungs.

RIDS-Nepal had to pause its work in the region due to the civil war that affected Nepal for most of the last decade, but they resumed their activities in 2009, and with the help of Friends of Humanity they hope to finalize the Family of Four project in the Mohoriguan Village.

You can find more videos of RIDS' activity on their Youtube page.
