http://www.irinnews.org/report/99780/factoring-conflict-reduction-into-wash-programmes:

"Compared with education or medicine, WASH (water, sanitation and hygiene) interventions, such as managing a water pump or building latrines, offer scope for greater involvement of the community." This is a specific article pertaining to WASH programs within Nepal, that when done effectively and through identifying community aspects, can reduce conflict by promoting peace-building and state-building. WASH programs are one of several ways that MountainChild is carrying hope to the children of the Himalayas. We are passionate about equipping and empowering communities for long-term sustainability and improvements in health through appropriate water, sanitation and hygiene infrastructure and education.

Today is World Refugee Day.

In the 1990’s, the Bhutanese government stripped people of ethnic Nepali origin of their Bhutanese citizenship and forced them into exile, back into Nepal. Any person that had ancestors from Nepal was no longer welcome in Bhutan. To encourage people to leave their home country, the Bhutanese government banned traditional Nepali clothing, burned Nepali artifacts and books, and banned the practice of Hinduism, the religion of most Nepalese people. Because of discrimination, Nepali children were often kidnapped from their parents. The government reportedly did these things to protect Bhutanese culture.

Because of citizenship laws, the Bhutanese refugees, even though they are of Nepali origin, aren’t considered legal Nepali citizens.


In January 2013, the Bhutanese refugee population in Nepal was estimated to be 40,971 individuals, who live in refugee camps in the southeastern part of the country with little to no economic opportunity. As of 2014, Bhutanese refugees no longer figure on the list of UNHCR priority situations. However, by the end of 2014, there will remain around 18-19,000 refugees for whom a sustainable solution must be found.
