“I think that the work Healthabitat is getting done over in Nepal is critical... I would highly recommend this type of experience for anyone looking to challenge what they know; both as a tradesperson, and a person in general!”

IWSH has partnered with Healthabitat and the WorldSkills Foundation to provide plumbing installations for remote schools and village communities across the Sindhupalchok region.

At IAPMO, we measure our success in lives, water and total lifecycle costs saved, contributing to strong healthy communities. Our non-profit arm, the International Water, Sanitation and Hygiene Foundation (IWSH) assembles teams of skilled plumbing volunteers to improve access to water, sanitation and hygiene for a variety of communities in need. We connect with local leaders, governmental and nonprofit partners, labor organizations, and manufacturers.
