The project has been in conjunction with our local partners; The Rotary Club of Thimphu, the Bhutan Toilet Organisation, and the Bhutan Ministry of Education.
A number of SkyHydrant installations have been completed, including this one at the Zhemgang school.

To meet this ambitious target we will need to raise $1,000,000 over the next 2 years.
