Summary

This project will help 10 farmer women to resume a home-stay program that was abandoned due to the damage of their houses by the 2015 earthquake. These women were supporting the community-based orphaned and abandoned childcare program by providing 10 % of their income-ensuring sustainability and allowing the children to gain a sense of family and community belonging. They are in dire need of financial assistance and technical support to reconstruct their houses and resume the home-stay program.

Challenge

The April 2015 earthquake has destroyed many houses that were implementing home-stay programs in Bungamati. It has left a scar on the physical and psychological state of the families. It has also badly affected the family's income sources. They don't have money to make their houses safe and suitable for implementing home-stay program. Without our financial and technical help they can't recover sufficiently. Without their support to the program, the program's sustainability will be in danger.

Solution

GFV will provide supplemental financial support and technical assistance in making the houses earthquake resistant and appropriate for home-stay guests. GFV will assist each family to add sufficient room for the guests in the new reconstruction of their house and improve the quality of kitchen, toilets and other facilities. They will also be provided technical support in developing a family's disaster preparedness plan for them and their guests to be safe, in the event of another earthquake.

Long-Term Impact

The farmer women implementing the home-stay program will be self assured, empowered and independent. Their contributions will be recognized and valued by the family and community. The home-stay community will be stronger and 50 more families will be implementing the program. The local community will have greater economic stability. The traditional local culture and cultural heritage will be preserved and promoted. The community-based childcare program will be self-sufficient and secure.
