Reconstruction in Thokarpa

Reconstruction with Earth Bricks

In Thokarpa,  Sindupalchowk, we work as construction partner for Sweden Nepal society building a new health post from Earth Bricks. In this village something truly wonderful has happened!

Building a three story library

While waiting for the permissions to start the construction of the health post Build up Nepal was asked by the local community if we could go ahead and set up the machine and start training in the meantime. Said and done – we came out and started training.

We trained a group of the local community in every step of Earth Brick production. They then independently continued to produce Earth Bricks. A few weeks later a three story RCC-structure was coming up in the village. Instead of waiting for the health post the local people took the opportunity to kick-start the reconstruction by producing Earth Bricks for the new library – a project initiated and funded by READ Nepal, Beautiful Store & Samsung.

Building the health post

We are now starting building the health post in Thokarpa. We are serving as construction partner to Sweden Nepal Society. This will help the poor families in this area to access basic healthcare and medicines which will help many people in need!

We are both happy and impressed by the power of initiative in the village of Thokarpa! The construction of the health post is underway and we already have more than 15 families that want to start building their houses as soon as the health post is completed!
