Namaste Community Support Centre
The phase one project will focus on making economic, environmental friendly and sustainable designs. We are now focusing on raising money for:
The Village will also focus on caring for the environment by utilizing environmentally sustainable practices and technologies like: biogas, solar cooking system, solar panel for electricity, etc. so as to not only reduce its own impact, but to also set an example to others in Nepal. An organic vegetable garden will be included. A group of architects has finalized the building structures of Namaste Community Service Centre in close cooperation with the NCF Director – Visma Raj Paudel.
The aim of our building construction strategy is to involve and mobilize local builders, manpower and materials. An experienced Nepali supervisor will be hired to oversee the progress of the construction. People from the International community will be invited and encouraged to volunteer and help NCF during this time, if possible, for digging the infrastructure, planting the vegetable garden, painting, etc. If individuals or groups would like to contribute to the project but are not able to be here physically, they can get involved by raising money for materials such as electrical goods, wall boards, paint, etc.
The Village Development Committee, along with other local government offices, has finalized the construction permit. There are no obstacles to building and developing the necessary infrastructure in this region.
With the purpose of building a village from the ground up it is seen as the perfect opportunity to include some of the best environmental practices available in Nepal. This will not only make the village as economically, environmentally and social sustainable as possible but also set an example for others and for future developments to follow.
