The Bimiri Foundation is a small Scottish charity registered with the OSCR, we fundraise to build pipelines in rural Nepali villages. If you have found this JustGiving page then you are either a long term supporter of the foundation, or you maybe have a friend currently travelling in Nepal who has very kindly shared our work on social media.

For the last 8 years we have been raising funds through social media and music events to build a pipeline in the village of Bimiri. Last year we finally succeeded in installing a tap to each of the 112 houses in the village and now we are aiming to complete another 6 villages over the next 5 years.

Any donation you can afford, great or small, will help us towards our goal. A donation of just £5 will pay for a day of labour on the next pipeline.

Many thanks for your support.

TBF has been fundraising since 2014 to bring clean, running drinking water to remote Nepali villages. Now that every home in Bimiri have their own indoor taps, we're focusing our efforts on bringing the same to the nearby village of Sawara.
