We believe that extensive training is essential for a successful project. Before we start with the actual construction of our projects, we give training to the local masons, carpenters and village representatives.
The topics include general construction principles, knowledge about earthquakes and earthquake resistant construction methods, and proper material handling. All presentations, movies and hands-on training is done in their own language. Part of the training is informative and theoretical, but we also include some practical sessions on-site.
We have added a couple of technical pages on this website regarding these topics:
Our Partners and Sponsors for this project
In total we have trained about 250 masons, carpenters, villagers and representatives in over 14 different Nepali villages. These programs could not have been carried out without the help of SEED Foundation from Nepal, and certainly not without its chairman Damodar Bhakta Thapa. He took care of arranging and organizing the training sessions, and translated the events in Nepali to the participants.
Two training sessions were held in cooperation with, and were sponsored by CWS and World Vision from Nepal.
