Japan provides assistance for the Project for the Construction of a Shelter-Community Center in Dhading District and for the Project for the Construction of Girls’ Hostel of Triveni Multiple Campus in Dadeldhura District.

The Government of Japan has decided to extend financial assistance of US Dollar 79,761, equivalent to approximately Nepalese Rupees 8,504,000, to Himalaya Conservation Group Nepal (HCG) under the Grant Assistance for Grassroots Human Security Projects (GGP) scheme of the Government of Japan in Japan’s Fiscal Year 2016.  HCG, a Nepal NGO in Lalitpur District, will work with local authorities and community based organizations to implement the Project for the Construction of a Shelter-Community Center in Dhading District.

A Grant Contract relating to this project is scheduled to be signed and exchanged at the Embassy of Japan to Nepal on 9th March, 2017, between Mr. Masashi OGAWA, Ambassador of Japan to Nepal, and Dr. Gangalal Tuladhar, Chairman of Himalaya Conservation Group Nepal.

This grant assistance will be used to implement a project in Kalleri VDC of Dhading District and aims to construct a shelter-community center for local residents.

Kalleri VDC, located in a remote area of Dhading District with a population of about nine thousand, was badly affected by the earthquake of 2015, leaving most of the houses destroyed. The recovery process suffered delays due to the difficulty of vehicles accessing the villages during the monsoon.

Himalaya Conservation Group Nepal, established in 2014, works for community empowerment through disaster preparedness, based on their research.

The shelter-community center, which will be built with funds from Japan, will be able to hold one hundred people in case of evacuation. At other times, it will be used as a multi-purpose community center for schools and local NGOs to conduct trainings and awareness programs. During peak harvesting season, it will be used as a collection center for agricultural products. It is expected that the center will also help local residents in their income generation.

 

The Embassy of Japan in Nepal expects this project will benefit the earthquake affected local residents and help them recover as soon as possible and live their daily life safely. Finally, I hope that this project will also enhance the cordial friendship between the peoples of Japan and Nepal.

Similarly, Japanese Assistance for the Project for the Construction of Girls’ Hostel of Triveni Multiple Campus in Dadeldhura District.

The Government of Japan has decided to extend financial assistance of US Dollars 81,948, equivalent to approximately Nepalese Rupees 8,752,000, to Rural Women’s Development and Unity Centre (RUWDUC) under the Grant Assistance for Japanese NGO Projects Scheme. RUWDUC, a Nepali NGO in Dadeldhura District, will work with Triveni Multiple Campus to implement the Project for the Construction of Girls’ Hostel of Triveni Multiple Campus in Dadeldhura District.

According to a press release issued by Japanese Embassy, a Grant Contract relating to this project is scheduled to be signed and exchanged at the Embassy of Japan to Nepal on 9th March, 2017, between Masashi OGAWA, Ambassador of Japan to Nepal, and Dr. Madhuri Rana Singh, President of Rural Women’s Development and Unity Centre.

This grant assistance will be used to implement the project in Parashuram Municipality in Dadeldhura District and aims to promote female students’ education by constructing a hostel near the Triveni Multiple Campus.

Triveni Multiple Campus is a community based campus located about 85 km south-west of Dadeldhura Headquarter. Established in 2007, it has been the sole campus in the area. Currently, 221 students are enrolled.

In the Far Western Region, cultural and economic obstacles to female higher education are prominent. RUWDUC, established in 1995, has been working mainly for the empowerment and uplifting of disadvantaged women, youth and children of the Far Western Development Region. Till now, RUWDUC has constructed 16 birthing centers, offered scholarship programs, and has a rehabilitation home in the area.

The hostel, which will be constructed with Japanese funds, will be a two-story building and be able to accommodate 48 female students per year. It is expected that the number of female students will increase and the drop-out rate among girls will decreased.

The Embassy of Japan in Nepal hopes the success of this project and it will benefit local female students who pursue higher education in this remote area.  We also hope this project will enhance the cordial friendship between the peoples of Japan and Nepal.
