01-14/03/2021 Banepa Forest Community BNP-11

Summary We are working to better the conditions of the Sinegal village community in the Kavre
district, near Banepa. We’re assisting in the development of effective agricultural
methods. We will be developing environmental awareness and community forestry.
We are working together with the local community to build a community house that
can be used for various activities or for shelter in case of emergency.

Background The Sinegal village is located in the Kavre district, at an altitude of 1800 m, about 30
km east of Kathmandu. Our activities take place around Banepa, a town just an hour
bus ride away from Kathmandu. Nature is all around and the air here is far better than
in the bustling capital.
Banepa offers amenities like restaurants with Wifi, pharmacies, grocery stores, etc.
After the earthquake, a lot of buildings were destroyed. The local population needs
help in the rebuilding of the village.

Work - Building a water tank and a well, for clean water access

- Construction of a seniors home, organisation of daily activities for seniors, creation
of a garden near the community house
- Help with the empowerment of women, to prepare them for the job market
- Further develop the community house, with the creation of a rooftop space to be
used as meeting space
- Construction of a firebreak in the surrounding forest
- Rebuilding of a Hindu temple in the Banepa village
- Construction of a wall around the local primary school
- Repair of wooden shelters for the local community

Accommodation Simple accommodations in a camp house. Volunteers will enjoy three traditional
meals a day, mostly the Nepalese traditional Dhal Bhat and take turns in cooking and
doing chores. Showers are available with cold water.

Other activities To be organised by the volunteers themselves in concert with camp leaders.
There are many opportunities to explore the surrounding area, such as the temples in
Panauti City (listed as World Cultural Heritage Sites by UNESCO) or visits to Bhaktapur,
Dhulikhel and many others.
There’s also the opportunity to take a two-days trekking trip to Namobuddha or
Nagarkot. The cost will bye around €50, food included.
