Name : Tewa

Location : Dhapakhel, Lalitpur

The facility manager of Tewa, Mr Nirjan Shakya explains “We practice culture of sustainability from growing our organic vegetables to harvesting rain for better water management. As a result, we have managed to significantly reduce our operating cost in Tewa.”


Located in Dhapakhel, Tewa is a non-profit organization that works towards women empowerment in rural as well as urban communities of Nepal. It practices modern philanthropy by minimizing social cost for a self-reliant development.

The facility manager of Tewa, Mr. Nirjan Shakya explains “We practice culture of sustainability from growing our organic vegetables to harvesting rain for better water management. As a result we have managed to significantly reduce our operating cost in Tewa.”

This very concept of sustainability is what lead them to SmartPaani. The government pipelines would barely supply 2000 to 3000 liters of water in week where as their facility with more than 40 employees and frequent guests requires more than 3000 liters of water daily. Considering this deficit, Tewa consulted with SmartPaani’s technical team in July 2015 and made the provision to catch rainwater from all of their infrastructure.

The facility now uses 400,000 liters of rainwater annually which is close to 34 tankers of water. Mr. Shakya shares “The rainwater is clean as we always keep the gutters clean and do a routine maintenance of the system. It’s easy and our cost of repair and replacement in 4 years is zero.”
