The Finished Women’s House, an Anti-Seismic Community Centre in Nepal

Orche Nepal, an NGO sponsored by the Foundation in 2017, has just finished the construction of a women’s house in the Thulo Syabru region of Nepal. The house, used as a common meeting location and community centre, gives the women a safe space to meet and is of great importance to the community as it is an anti-seismic building in the village; safe in case of earthquakes or other natural disasters. The women’s house is used to aid other families in need, take care of the elderly and organise cultural ceremonies, among other things, creating a strong sense of community within the village. The women often donate a small portion of their own money to a collective fund to finance their actions. We are proud to have been a part of this project, see the full construction of the house below!
