AMTM CAMPAIGN 2011 FOR WATER & ENERGY
A vital programme!
In last month’s Newsletter (Newsletter No. 20 – May 2011) we highlighted our main project for 2011 and the coming year, ‘Water and Energy’.
You would find the situation in Nepal disastrous and particularly the way in which water is managed, knowing that filthy water is the cause of the majority of the pathologies which our doctors come across out in the field.
Access to energy is also an important issue. In Europe to benefit from light at any hour of the day or night, or the use of electric appliances (fridge, cooker) seem to be the most basic requirements… In Nepal most of the inhabitants outside of the towns have no access at all to electricity, and even in the capital Kathmandu, the electricity power cuts can last more than 15 hours a day!
Water and electricity are also linked, for on some sites filters, pumps and other vital devices cannot function without electricity!
A UV filter at one of AMTM’s sites. It is easy to use, requires little maintenance and provides very clean water, but it needs power…
The AMTM Water and Energy programme is ambitious: after a thorough audit of all the sites we support, we propose to give each one the appropriate technical solutions and allow them access to the best conditions for living.
These solutions are available, like for example a combination of batteries and photovoltaic solar panels, for which the price is regularly coming down and which are becoming accessible in certain cases.
A set of ‘solar panels, batteries and modulator’ enable a home … or several classrooms to be lit up. Cost: approximately 1,000€
A NEW FLOOR FOR THE NYINGMAPA WISHFULFILLING INSTITUTE…
The building work is progressing quickly!
Thanks to the Regional Council of the Ile de France, and our partners Talents et Partage and TalentSoft, AMTM has been able to set up this vital project at the Nyingmapa Wishfulfilling Institute at Sundarijal (North-East of Kathmandu) to add a floor to one of the buildings, and increase its capacity to welcome more students and teachers.
The building work, which started after our Mission to Nepal in 2011, is advancing according to the timescale and will be finished well before the next Monsoon. The total figure for this project is 25,600€. A huge thank you to all our partners!
