In 2009 the CAN school at the village was very badly damaged by landslides and a flood.
We are therefore pleased to report that the school is now being re-built on higher ground on the opposite side of the river, below the CAN Health Post. Work is progressing well and we would particularly like to thank Aiglon School, in Switzerland and ex- staff member Bill O’Connor who raised a magnificent $3000 to support this rebuilding.
CAN built the Health Post. CAN also repainted the Milarepa rock carvings. CAN funded the construction of a fish-farm which was recently washed away in a monsoon flood so violent it also took out two government bridges, part of the school and three houses. Thankfully no-one was injured in the incident.
CAN funds two nurses and a helper at the Health Post, and a previous health camp at Milareppa saw 550 patients.
CAN has supported kitchen garden development, fruit cultivation, and soil testing programme. It has also supported a water mill, fish farming, lodge development, adult education, bee keeping, and lead farmer training. The Mother’s Group have received group formation and mobilisation training.
