We are beyond happy to share with you the two selected Pilot-projects from HeiSDA. The reports are following in the next days (german version of the kanyam project and the Evaluation in german are already available.
1st An education environment project in Nanglebare, Kathmandu Valley:
HeiSDA volunteers supported the local community in improving the education evironment in Nanglebare, that had already been deprived of good education, health and sanitation, when it was hit badly by the earthquake in 2015. The volunteers worked at Navin Gram Secondary school to rebuild four class rooms, made furniture and white boards and constructed a play yard for the pupils including gaming devices. Some 1500 people in over 240 households benefited directly from this education environment project.
2nd Community building for women’s group in Kanyam, Ilam District:
HeiSDA volunteers supported the local women’s group Mahila Surdoya Co-ooperative in Kanyam, a village in the hilly far east of Nepal. The community had never worked with internationals before. The volunteers assisted in building a two-rooms community building equipped with smokeless stove and soak pit. The house will be used for meetings, trainings, market place and potentially also as library and computer lab. The village has 4000 inhabitants and many households benefit directly from this project as the large share of the women are part of the co-operative.
