Sanjeev Singh who has been involved in developing the Big Lottery Projects has sent the video which can be viewed here and which brings the project development work in North Gorkha up to date.
With the help of the Big Lottery Funding CAN is trying to achieve:
- building increased local health capacity in North Gorkha by supporting the training and progression of five local health post helpers by increasing health skills and awareness, thereby strengthening local health resilience. [Project 1]
- modelling new and well managed cottage gardens at five North Gorkha health posts to improve horticultural skills and knowledge of local people and the replication of cottage gardens in the wider community, resulting in improved nutrition, food security and livelihoods.
- working with the community at Melamchigaun and Ghunsa to build demonstration homes in line with 'Building Back Better' principles and equipping local people with the skills to rebuild more seismically resistant replacement homes and community infrastructure.
- facilitating community enterprise training and development in Ghunsa, Melamchigaun and North Gorkha by supporting new and sustainable income generation opportunities to improve local livelihoods.
CAN Nepal staff who are involved in the projects are to be congratulated. They include the Programme Manager, Sanjeev as well as our Health Supervisor, the specialist horticulturists, CAN's Engineer and Overseers and all the local health post helpers and agriculturists who are working so hard to make these projects a great success.
