Nepal 2013 projects
Building walls to prevent landslides during the monsoon season
- Monsoon rains devastate the land every year, taking down poorly built walls and houses and depositing debris on farm land. The walls built help prevent this.
Digging a site for latrine and sanitation equipment placement
- Sanitation facilities are poorly equipped and disease is more easily spread. The site dug went towards a cleaner and healthier environment.
Building the foundations for a kitchen
- The foundations built provided a stable base for an indoor kitchen, which will have clean and functioning facilities. This indoor kitchen will decrease the amount of time and effort that goes into cooking food for the children and volunteers.
Deconstructing an abandoned house and saving the material for future use
- The material saved will be used in future construction plans and the area cleared provided more space for the children to play.
Clearing the land of debris and rubble
- Levelling the land is key for a stable foundation for construction and clearing the debris decreased the risk of injury onsite.
Drainage ditch for heavy rainfall
- This ditch will direct rainfall away from buildings and farmland. Preventing future damage occurring or land being swept away.
