Navjyoti Women’s Center
Water Project for Koshidekha Village
Navjyoti Women’s Center in Kathmandu, Nepal is a ministry of the Sisters of Charity of Nazareth. The Sisters of Charity of Nazareth KY serve in and around the village of Koshidekha in Nepal, which was at the center of the 7.8 magnitude earthquake in 2015, causing over 9000 deaths and catastrophic damage. The Sisters worked collaboratively with local leaders, government officials and others to rebuild the water delivery system infrastructure. Due to their efforts 690 families in Koshidekha, a very remote village 175 km away from Kathmandu, were provided safe drinking water.
