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.

Fading eastern light over western NSW plains on re-entry to Sydney.  Tough visit to Nepal this time. Struggling economy, massive inflation, increasing suicide rates, fewer and fewer jobs. Small wonder the drain of young people coursing out of the country, mainly aged 18-30 years, continues to grow. On average 3-4000 per day.  Villages are emptying. Schools are closing due to falling numbers of students.  Families are breaking up, leaving the parents to grow into either a lonely retirement in Nepal or face moving to another country where they are with their kids and grandkids but without their daily neighbours and local community.  It’s great to see so many beautiful Nepalese working and helping in Australia and other countries, and seeking opportunities they can’t find in their home country but the social, structural and political fracturing back in Nepal is deepening. The next few years will be very interesting.  Namaste!!🙏🏽 🙏🏽
