Thulopakhar (Sindhupalchok district) in the North-east
of Nepal, five hours drive from the capital city, is a mountainous area above
1600 meters where 6,000 people live. Education and health services are limited
to four schools and one health center. Lack of drinkable water and water for
land irrigation are among the major constraints.
The community is active and well organized. In Nepal, local tradition and culture are based on solidarity. Joint work is done at community level during the harvesting season and to build small infrastructures as irrigation canals and trails.
The local committee is elected to identify the population needs and promote solutions. In the area is very active the “Women Community”, 500 members.
The association is self-financed through membership fees and monthly savings’ collection of 100 Rupees (one Euro) from each member.
