Phase 2 – Rehabilitation and Reconstruction
is well underway for UMN’s two-year work in Dhading district, where we
are committed to a longer-term strategy in five VDCs. Here are some

  • A two-day workshop was held with our three key
    partner organisations last week. This was a good opportunity to work
    together, thinking through priorities and available resources and
    discussing community needs and strengths.
  • A list of positions needed in the Dhading response team has been made, and we will begin recruiting next week.
  • UMN
    will partner with Tearfund UK in our “shelter” response. People will
    be able to build their own houses, with support provided in the shape of
    cash/vouchers for materials and labour.
  • Designs for Temporary
    Learning Centres are being finalized; these could be partly constructed
    in Kathmandu, and components transported to some sites.
