KATHMANDU, June 2: Roughly one in ten people worldwide lack access to safe drinking water. Climate change threatens to exacerbate this problem by fuelling drought in vulnerable regions.
At present, the planet’s population is set to grow substantially and global temperatures to rise steadily. This adds further uncertainty to the supply of fresh water.
Project Noah Philanthrophy Trust Nepal´s President: Mr.Raju Sunar who is Representitative of Central Member by Nepali Congress says the mission to supply clean drinking water to the underprivileged communities came into action in 2013 with seed capital from the Rockefeller Foundation, Cisco Systems Foundation and three individual philanthropists continuing the founders’ vision.
Their goal is to embark on a social mission to drive change on a global scale by applying new, innovative thinking to formulate a solution for the underprivileged, excluded and impoverished people of the world.
Project Noah has been involved in various community projects in Nepal, Thailand and in Cambodia. In Nepal they are investing USD $500 000 in building Children's Home for the orphanages and also supplying clean water filter systems to the underprivileged community all over Nepal.
On 6th May 2017, Project Noah opened the water filter system in Gorkaneshwar, Jorpati, Nepal for about 200 families. They commenced another clean water project on 7th May in Padmai Ga shall Choiling School in Gorkanath Nepal.
Their aim is to build 100 water filter systems in Nepal by using the latest technology to extract water from the atmosphere to provide clean drinking water in remote villages where water is a scarce resource.
Turbine or wind powered water extraction from atmosphere can supply about 11 gallons of water per day while solar powered system can supply about 10 gallons per day, depending on the humidity.
More than 600 million people lack regular access to clean drinking water on a daily basis and by 2030 and their goal is to get availability of water strips easily and half of humanity will live in areas where the demand for water outstrips available.
Project Noah is continually innovating and formulating a solution for the underprivileged, excluded and impoverished people of the world.
