The two earthquakes that hit Nepal in April and May 2015 claimed many lives. We chose to help the village of Budhathum 6 as we already knew the area surrounding the village, and it was badly affected.
Located 140 km northwest of Kathmandu in the Dhading district, the village of Budhathum is divided into 9 hamlets. Located in the mountains, Budhathum 6 is a hamlet of 600 people including 110 children. The villagers normally meet their basic needs through agriculture (rice, millet, wheat, corn) and livestock (goats, buffaloes, cows, chickens).
The need to build a Community Center for the residents of Budhathum 6 was, in consultation with the villagers, instantly raised.
