Drinking water supply for Jamune: work has been completed

In January 2014 the water supply network´s project of Jamune and its scholastic centre was presented by the NGO Pro Nepal to the Autonomous Province of Bolzano; we received a financial support of 60% commission on the estimated amount.

Works and projects have been planned and we were about to finance a leftover 40% of the amount.

Unfortunately, due to the two earthquakes in 2015, we were forced to interrupt the planned project, because other needs took priority over it.

Despite the distance, our local partner SEO (society for each other) agreed to manage the project and the works, which began in autumn 2016 and lasted until December.

The final balance sheet and all the other papers were delivered to the Province of Bolzano just in time in order to get the payment.

During the earthquakes most of the buildings fell down, therefore the scheduled latrines haven´t been built and the final cost of the labour was 37.000 euro instead of 47.200 euro. In March 2017 Jamune was visited by a member of Pro Nepal and the President of SEO to make an inspection in order to verify the outcome. Two water tanks and the public water taps were checked. Because of the interrupted water inflow, the two water tanks were empty, therefore technicians solved the problem in a short time.

We worked hard on this project and put great care into it, but we´re glad that the village and the scholastic centre, which hosts almost 300 schoolchildren, can finally get running water.

All efforts have been made, therefore the fundamental right to water has been shielded with our strength, facing difficulties and obstacles, attaching importance to its meaning.

The school of Tipchok

The President of the Province of Bolzano takes part in the inauguration of 3 classrooms – The beginning of the construction of Tipchok’s new water main will be soon.

After the earthquake, in the late autumn 2015, three new classrooms in the School “Shree Bhuminata” of Tipchok were about to be built. Works lasted until the end of 2016.

Because there was no space, it was built a provisional flat surface for the children’s play time during the break. The final cost of the labour was 19.255 euro for the three classrooms and 4.700 euro for the flat surface.

The inauguration took place on 5th March 2017 and the scholastic centre and local people took part in this event which was organised by a member of Pro Nepal and our local partner, the Society for each other SEO. It has been highly considered by Dr Arno Kompatscher, who was visiting Nepal and the projects co-financed by his Government. Besides other projects, he inaugurated the School of Tipchock,  which has been appreciated by many people.

A wall sign with engraved financier´s and proposer’s names has been uncovered too.

At the end of the Party, a local engineer showed the President and his delegation the project of Tipchock´s new water main, which was proposed and planned by the SEO and Pro Nepal.

The Autonomous Province of Bolzano partially financed this project in 2016. Works will begin soon.

Last News: Drinking water project Sanga: The project develops in an autonomous way.

According to Mrs. Jaya Rajbhandari ( Association SEO -Society of each other) from Kathmandu, the village of SANGA is developing in a positive manner. This is to reaffirm of our vice president’s impressions about Sanga during his last personal visit in 2014.

A few years ago, a new drinking water plant was built in Sanga. The project for the construction of the plant was financially supported by the ProNepal association and the local government of Bolzano, i.e. the Autonomous Province of Bolzano (year 2010).

As a result of the good water supply, many new houses and even hotels were built in the village. Also, in Sanga was built the tallest statue in the world in honor of the god Lord Shiva. Today the statue is an attraction for many tourists and locals alike.

As an extension of the existing drinking water plant, last year the local population initiated the construction of a second water tank. Furthermore, the Nepalese government has already agreed to give its financial support for the construction of a deep- well recharge, since the village’s spring discharge is going to be insufficient in the near future. There’s no immediate access to this funding, but it will be available within the next few years.
