Building on over 12 years of experience in sanitation programs in rural and remote regions of Nepal, the PPF supports Australian teams to work alongside Nepali plumbers and tradespeople to improve their skills and understanding of what it takes to install functioning and safe water supply and sanitation systems.
Once a year a PPF Fellowship, a life changing experience, is offered to a selected Australian plumbing and media team who will work with a Nepali team on a village based sanitation project. The project will vary from year to year and will include toilet block constructions, village and health post sanitation assessments and evaluations, and upgrading and improvement of existing facilities.

The PPF Fellowship 2020 is open for applications from a plumber and a media coordinator under the age of 28 to visit Nepal for one month in early 2020. The project work is still being finalised and details will be available in October 2019.
The PPF plumber will work with local plumbers and the PPF media coordinator will document the works for inclusion in a training package that will take the form of a visually based learning resource. The training package will develop over time to include plumbing procedures, hygiene training for village families and community staff, and information on village sanitation conditions to inform local health professionals.
