We are supporting "Chay-Ya Austria" in the construction of four remote mountain schools in Rasuwa and Gorkha, in Nepal plus two health points, in Nepal. The health points will be located in the north of the Gorkha district.
The communities around Gorkha are particularly poor, because the main route to the north - and also a trekking route - runs along the opposite side of the valley and therefore the community does not benefit from tourism.
The area has a total population of 7,853 people. The health points will include a treatment room, delivery room and some hospital beds. These health points will benefit the community, who would otherwise have to walk for two days to get to the nearest health point.
