Building shelter to the most vulnerable

In the fifth year of the great earthquake 2015, PHASE Nepal continues to support the affected communities this year with special focus on reaching the most vulnerable communities which are left behind without receiving any support.

With its earthquake recovery project, PHASE is building houses for some of the most vulnerable communities living in remote areas of Chitwan and Dhading with the theme of "Leave No One Behind".

With an aim of supporting 250 most vulnerable and 550 significantly vulnerable families, the project has already completed the rebuilding of 162 houses and 136 houses for the families of both categories respectively and is working to complete more house before the monsoon (rainy) season begins.

All the houses are build under the earthquake resistant designs approved by National Reconstruction Authority (NRA) of Nepal with trained masons.

PHASE appreciates all of its individual and institutional supporters for their continuous helping hand in rebuilding earthquake affected communities.

The best thing I learned in recent sessions is to be able to give feedback in a very constructive and non-resenting way", shares a participant teacher.

This quarter, a group of 4 villagers from Baruwa  a remote village in Sindhupalchok got trained in participatory video(PV) making and captured the experience of earthquake affected people in rebuilding their houses.

Among the people who were interviewed, some have completed building their houses, some were still in the middle and some have not started rebuilding houses even after 3 and a half years of massive destruction by the Earthquake of 2015.

They shared about several problems they faced ranging from materials to finding skilled and unskilled labours.

The PV researchers themselves learned and took part in the simple editing of video using a software called iMovie.

The video was screen locally so as to give the live feedback from the people to the concerned authority. 

 Here is a 13 minute video featuring 5 case studies, uploaded in youtube. Please turn on the cc/subtitles for English subtitles.
