Kevin commented on School in a Box

I liked how you researched the age of young children that starts school, found out what was wrong and used that age range as a target for your idea. All of your illustrations are thought through to ensure that it is simple and easy to understand. How will you find a way to maintain the facilities that are created?.

Kevin commented on Pure water

Thanks for the feedback Bidur, what we mean by pure water is water that has been purified to the extent that it can be drinkable without any consequences so the colour of the water will still be the same from its source but other than that the water is fine to drink. To answer your question it would be both as we have researched many other possibilities that they can have pure water but due their limited resources we used the methods that they can afford to do.

Tackling the water source known as "Dhara" maybe difficult since most of the sources are underground or elsewhere so having the community applying their resources once they have collected their water seemed a much more suitable option.

We have thought about a service that will help educate the community but the downside is how many people will actually attend the service or even change their everyday life that they are used to for years. They have limited resources and income which forces them to carry out their chores the way the are currently doing it so we believe that it would be difficult to educate them through a service.

Thank you for suggesting another filtering technique that we can implement into our idea, the materials that you have mention are common in Nepal and especially in low income communities. This just tells us that the community in Nepal are so far behind it can create similarities with people who are at war surviving in remote locations.
