The Kutumsang community has worked with CAN in both health and education projects over a number of years.
CAN has built the Health Post, put in a water supply and built two new class rooms at the Himalayan School and installed a new roof at the Birendra School.
At Kakani school CAN has provided a much needed sanitation block. The Himalayan and Birendra schools are also supported with books and teaching materials.
At the Health Post CAN financially support two nurses and a helper as well as providing equipment and medicines. Health camps have now been run at the village, attracting patients from the surrounding areas. The nurses provide important health education to three local schools and also a worming programme and first aid training.
In 2012 a new fence was erected around the Health Post with the generous help and hard work of Graham and Julie Earnshaw and the West Yorkshire Scout Group they lead. Click through the picture gallery to see the new fenceline which prevents unwanted animals straying into the Health Post.
