Update September 2016

Dear all,

We reached Nepal well and had some fruitful meetings with Shyam and Karma.

Our first challenge is to fix the road which is quite damaged from the heavy monsoon before we can start any project.

Next project will be to finalise the water project.
Bakor: install second 500l tank on the other side of the mountain so people have two waterreservoirs that will fill up during nighttime in the dry season.
Goimase: finished
Matilu Silku: finished
Sanu Silku: finished
Angeri Faith: intake and distribution tank finished. Pipe till house + personal tap still to be finished.
Chanchabad: intake and distribution tank finished. Pipe till house + personal tap still to be finished.
Nardangrang:intake and distribution tank finished. Pipe till house + personal tap still to be finished.
Bateodar: intake and distribution tank finished. Pipe till house + personal tap still to be finished.

Third project is to repair the 26 broken toilets and built permanet toilets for the peole who got a temporary toilet during the time of the earthquake. Also we will provide material to repair the 15 damaged toilets.

Today we had a very nice meeting with Shock Safe Nepal team 4 from the TUDelft on our 4 th project. For this project we will start building our first earthquake resistent model house in Ratankot designed by Shock Safe Nepal. This 8 by 4 m building will later serve as a guestroom for the village. Team 4 will document the whole building proces to have a clear analysis of the cost an labour. This documentation will later be used to organize a training.

The last project we engaged for is the rebuilding of the community Hall. The design for this earthquake resistant building was realised in collaboration with Intach Belgium. This building will make it possible for the villagers to organise their meetings, gatherings, ceremonies etc...

We send you our heartwarming regards,

Brecht and Manisha.
