Government Approval.

Dear Friends and Supporters

Our team in Nepal have just arrived back from the field. They have been leading a government evaluation team to check out our proposals for a new 5 year plan. This is an essential part of the approval process that, unfortunately, takes time and slows down our work in the field. The good news is they were very happy with what they saw and we should expect to receive the closing letter from the Social Works Council (SWC) within the next 1 - 2 weeks.

We can now move ahead with the final development of our new and innovative Renewable Energy Service Centre (SC). Working in collaboration with our chosen NGO the Local Initiative Development Support Consultancy Agency (LIDS) we can now start equipment procurement and fitting out of the SC.

During the groups stay in Humla there was a micro-hydro power failure in one of the villages they stayed in. This was a project built in the early 90s by a bi-lateral agency and with a long history of problems. Previously repairs have not been carried out urgently due to cost and having to get engineers from Kathmandu or India. The SC project will hopefully solve this problem and ensure the smooth running of the many schemes in the district. It will also provide a blueprint for similar schemes in other remote areas of the Himalayas.

Thank you for all your patience and support for this fantastic project. Clean renewable energy has made remarkable improvements to the health and wellbeing of the local inhabitants of this remote part of the world. The SC will ensure a stronger and more reliable future and encourage further development. Please tell your friends about us and encourage their support. Perhaps you know of renewable energy companies that might want to help?

Namaste
