From 2002 -2009, with the help of WaterAid and NEWAH (NEpalese Water And Health), the clinic provided enough funds to sink 246 wells and build 2861 toilets. On the 20th April 2009, Meghauli became one of only 13 (out of 3913 areas) to be declaring a 'defecation free zone'. A new ambitious water project to build a water tower to provide 20,000 villagers with an inside tap' commenced in February 2013.

Due to the unfortunate economic situation in Nepal, a high percentage of those living in the rural areas (especially the lower class 'caste') will never become eligible to work in the public sector, as they have not attained the qualifications required. The clinic provides some of the villagers an opportunity to gain skills, through its Vocational Training program. It also provides funding for numerous small projects within the community, ranging from: training a villager to sew and buying them a sewing machine, providing computers for school, improving health and sanitations at both local schools and settlements.

The caste system in Nepal though officially assigned to the history books, is still very much alive and well! The lowest caste are called Dalit's unfortunately if you fall into this category, education is not always possible! So, funding is allocated to those families to enable their children to attend school. At a disadvantaged and marginalised community school in Baderghari, the clinic is building a small medical post, showers, and updating the toilets, to enable free medical care in a purpose built facility and access to up to date toilets and showering facilities.

As with the area around Baderghari, Madi is another such village that needs our help. A plan is being proposed/formulated to build a satellite Clinic, to that of Meghauli, to enable a free medical facility 'on their doorstep' so that they do not have to rely on the medical outreach clinics, currently being provided.
