Okanagan organization helps provide water for all in Nepal

Presentation shares success of project at Okanagan Science Centre March 27

Join Suresh Shrestha and Govinda Ghimire to hear how Tamakoshi Sewa Samiti (TSS) built 4,000 latrines and water systems in rural communities throughout the district of Ramechhap, Nepal, since 2016. This achievement led to Ramechhap being declared an Open Defecation Free Zone!

Shrestha and Ghimire will be speaking at the Okanagan Science Centre at 7 p.m. on Wednesday, March 27. Admission is free and open to all ages. It is an excellent cultural exchange opportunity for families. There will be lots of time for questions and interactions. The speakers, Shrestha (TSS Project Officer) and Ghimire (TSS President), are experienced in presenting to all age groups.
