Presentation ANUVAM – 2018

2018 presentation of the humanitarian association
« Au Népal, un village, une amitié en marche »

For more than 20 years, the association “Au Népal, Un Village, une Amitié en Marche (ANUVAM) “, founded by a group of trekkers, has been forging a friendly and supportive relationship with a mid-mountain village community in the Solukhumbu region, south of Everest.

Rapcha Basa, a village primarily made up of the Khaling Rai people and almost 20% Magar, is located alongside the banks of the Dudh Khosi river, and practices self-sustaining terraced farming. As small farmers, they occasionally use their strength as carriers to supply provisions to other villages or to lead treks.

Since the end of 2017, the village has been accessible via a Jeep track.

Rapcha report – may 2018

Earthquake resistant (anti-seismic) house project

The two mega earthquakes in April and May of 2015 have shaken the whole of Nepal and made colossal damages throughout the country. Reconstruction began after the strong aftershock on May and ANUVAM decided to help in the process.
To begin with six families were chosen from Rapchha who were/are in dire situation either financially or from family situation perspective. The houses of the chosen families were damaged severely during the earthquake and most of them were unable to build a new house on their own due to their very week financial status. Some of them were single parents and many of them had more than four dependent children.

Rebuilding of a house in Rapcha- March 2017

Shokal’s house

Shokal’s house has finally been nearly achieved, as witnessed by the photos taken early march 2017 . It is somewhat bigger as planned, but it was intended as a work training programme and it will be later possible to build smaller structures.
After two and a half months spent in Nepal, Vincent, the young mason, expert on  rehabilitation who supervised the reconstruction of the house for our association, can really be proud of the work done.

Among the selected families for the first phase of works, we chose Shokal because he was a widower with two young children and he had   generously offered land for the construction of the health clinic.
