SWASHE Projects – School, Water, Hygiene and Sanitation Education is an essential part of bringing permanent transformation to schools and communities in Nepal.
Each school has between 200 and 500 students and so the opportunity to see practices amongst not only the whole student body but also their families is significant.
The project provides latrines, a water source, filters water in every classroom and teachers common rooms as well as a full education curriculum that is taught weekly to the whole student body.
The result is that students and families along with teachers become aware of and empowered to use water well and improve the sanitation and hygiene of the whole community. This leads to lower morbidity and death rates from water-borne disease and improved overall health as well as growth in school attendance and work attendance rates in the community.
Gifts to approved Metamorphic Projects over $2 are tax deductible.
No non-development activities are undertaken using tax-deductible gifts.
Our projects are typically designed in such a way that the activities can be implemented incrementally, regardless of whether a fundraising target is met or exceeded (e.g. if a project includes 3 wells but only enough funds are raised for 2 wells, then only 2 wells will be completed). In the case where excess funds are received they may be applied to other similar projects (e.g. any funds in excess of what is required for 3 wells but may be applied to a school latrine project in a different region).
All donations (gifts) and contributions to Metamorphic are made unconditionally however we note your preferred beneficiary as indicated by your allocation. The project manager may alter the allocation in the best interest of project outcomes (e.g. if a different solution will help more people, that option will be chosen).
Please note: All reports will reflect the above and accurately account for the results
