“Let’s make Changu a butterfly valley”

Bhaktapur is the smallest district of Nepal, occupying an area of just 119 square kms and home to a population of 304,651 (*National Population Census 2011).

A campaign was started in 2011 to declare the district free of open defecation and as a result Bhaktapur has been able to become the first ODF (Open Defecation Free) district in Kathmandu Valley. Almost all households now have toilets.
