The details

  • You'll fly out on the 10th November and arrive back on the 17th
  • All expenses and travel are covered.
  • You’ll travel with a team of nine people, including someone from the Octopus team (we're all really nice, promise. Start storing up your energy questions now!) 
  • We’ll send a full itinerary to the winner early next week. 
  • Applications close Wednesday 9th October at 11:59pm.

The project

Dhangadhi is Nepal’s second largest city, boasting a population of 146,000. They face serious waste and sewage issues in their water supply with most main rivers across the borders being heavily polluted.

You’ll support local teams to help install a solar water pumping system. This technology harnesses solar energy and uses it to pump water from its source to tap stands throughout.

Your role in the team could be anything from building a tap stand, helping construct a reservoir tank or digging a trench for a pipeline  — saving thousands of hours of treacherous journeys.

You'll get a chance to travel to Jugedhara, where a solar water system is already up and running. See first-hand the difference that's been made to the community, and the benefit it's made to their day to day lives – at no carbon cost!

To apply

Just answer a few quick questions, starting with why you think you'd be a perfect addition to the project team.
