Global Action Nepal (GAN) is a NGO which for the previous two decades has been working towards enhancing the lives of young minds by providing quality education and vocational skill courses.
The NGO which has been working with the continuous aim of creating a better society was itself going through a major water crisis as the community water supply in Karya Binayak location was really poor where the program office of GAN is located.
That was the time when GAN came up with the solution of filtering their groundwater and use it for daily use. For filtering their groundwater and purifying it, they chose to use the biosand filter from SmartPaani.
This was solving their water scarcity problem really well. They wanted also to become more sustainable with their water usage. To adapt sustainability in their office, they chose to recycle and reuse their rainwater for which they used rainwater harvesting.
