Temporary kitchens for safe cooking

The village construction teams have been working enthusiastically during the hot days and dusty wind storms to complete the kitchen shelters for the village families.  Fatta, of toilet number 37, has come to the fore with his bamboo management skills.  The teams now benefit from the skills of both younger and older members.

The bundles of tin sheets are bought locally at Banepa where there is great competition to procure the sheets.  Prem Lama was on the spot one day, spotting a truck delivering supplies of the sheets in Raja Hardware’s yard.  Within the hour bundles of sheets had been purchased and delivered to the top of the village where they were divided up among the families who carried them down to their house sites.

HH has been working with Bishnu Shrestha to adapt a cooking stove design from the engineering department of Kathmandu University.  This will further improve the capacity for safe cooking during the coming wet months.

Uni of Newcastle team last year in Arubot.... folks, thanks to Surya at left, TT can continue to support the reconstruction of lost homes. The villagers welcome you to return and see how people are rebuilding their lives. Namaste and Laso!! ...

Thanks Australian Dental Association for these magnificent flowers. It was an honour to be invited by the ADA to share information about TT’s Nepal activities, with dentists young and not so young. ...

One of the recipients of the latest round of funds raised by TT’s helpers to support post-earthquake reconstruction in Nepal. Arjun and his family have lived in a rudimentary shelter for more than 4 years; our subsidy has allowed him to finally build this small home, completed this week. Arjun is of the BK caste, considered one of the lowest and untouchable castes. One of my always-memories is the moment his piercing eyes of deep gratitude melted my insides as I handed him the key to his family toilet in 2014. Dignity. ...

Young Prem, all materials to this building site are brought in by manual labour ...
