In January 2016 Pro Nepal had the support of additional contributions in order to carry out a plan for a water supply network in the village of Tipchok – Kavrepalchok in Nepal.

Unfortunately, after the earthquake, springs dried up and the village waterworks almost disappeared. Women are forced to carry water 400 meters away from the village unless this project is completed. In August 2015 a member of Pro Nepal visited Tipchok and the people explained the situation to him.

There’s a school centre, which is supported by Pro Nepal, that needs another waterworks project to build three additional classrooms to replace the ones which were destroyed by the earthquake.

Pro Nepal asked our local partner, SEO Kathmandu, to create a proposal which would be presented to the Region.

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.
