Gorkha: In Focus
Khadka Gaun is a small community based in Namjung, Gorkha and is west of Kathmandu. The people in the area were very welcoming interested and accepting of having 12 new people stay in their homes and we enjoyed working together to develop livelihood projects in the area. The 2015 earthquake devastated the area and although some people have had financial support, it has not reached everyone yet. Funds from this project will go directly towards generating support for the community through education, training and agriculture through the organisation SSICDC. If you would like to know more about this project or to buy a book/print then please email us at infocus.org. The money fundraised through this goes straight towards the community and environmental causes. Thank you to Olympus and Raleigh International for the support.
