Shelter project team set off for field missionPosted 24 June, 07:24 am
June 24 2015, A newly hired enthusiastic team of staff members including engineer, social mobilizer and logistics assistant set off their field mission on June 24 2015.
The team will be coordinating project implementing partners in providing shelters to the most vulnerable populations across 10 priority locations in the districts of Sindhupalchowk, Dolakha and three districts in Kathmandu Valley.
An orientation program for project implementing partners and staff members was organized on 7th June and they were oriented on administrative procedures and project reporting framework on 19th June, 2015. In an orientation program, Santosh Shrestha, Team Leader of the project highlighted project objectives and its implementation modalities.
The nine-month long project funded by the Government of Japan will directly benefit 2200 households, out of which 1600 will receive material support for temporary shelter while the remaining 600 households will be provided with proper shelter solutions (repair and rental subsidy) in three districts in Kathmandu Valley. This target is projected to benefit approximately 13200 individuals.
The project operates ten Community Information Centers (CIC), two in each five selected districts that serve as an information hub for communities seeking technical information on ‘building back better and safer’.
The project is being implemented locally by national level NGOs Lumanti-support group for shelter, Center for Integrated Urban Development and Community Development and Environmental Conservation Forum and their local partners in the districts.
