Posted on November 25, 2020 under News
Being limited to household chores is often a reality for rural women in Nepal. But in Bungal of Bajhang District, 11 women got a chance to participate in the mason training to ace their construction skills. In total, 53 participants took part in the mason training on “Earthquake Resistant Building Construction Technology” which was conducted for a week starting from 5 November, by UMN and its partner Dalit Help Society.
The training was helpful for the participants to build their confidence in applying their skills of earthquake resilient technology in building houses in the community, and each trainee received NPR 3,500 (approx. USD 40) for equipment and tools. The training was also a good platform for participants to share their knowledge and learn from each other’s experiences. The women participants have proved that, from creating a home to building concrete houses, women can do it all if given the right opportunity.
