This link will take you a story recently run in the Nepali Times about Barry’s work and the history of the Peace Corps in Nepal.
NCDC continues to work on new projects. These images were sent earlier this week. They show completed projects and projects in progress. Thanks as always to the EWB team and to Bhupal for sending these updates and keeping us up to date on the progress.
Pleased to be posting some news here after several quiet months. Bhupal sent these images today – he and a EWB volunteer are shown taking briquette training from Sanu Kaji at FoST. The briquette program will be developed in the Ilam district over the next year.
This initiative was developed by NCDF and approved by NCDC. The images here show the pulping process. The custom stoves can also be seen in operation.
These images were sent today from Bhupal showing a working example of the biogas project.
Posted here are some images of the reed bed system, pico hydro, public latrine, (Ilam) and some of the agricultural experiments that NCDC is taking on with the help of EWB folks from Colorado, India and Israel. These were taken in October 2010.
I was given these images to post on the last trip and am finally getting around to posting them now. These wonderful images were taken by NCDC staff and show some of the magnificent natural features of the eastern region of Nepal.

Work of EWB is going smoothly. The program conducted with school students about health and sanitation and water quality testing has positive effect. If we could continue this type of program, we can get positive result than Namsaling. It will be best if I give plenty of time in this project when EWB students are here ,with availability of some funds for programs (Like toilet program in Namsaling). This time Mara, Jess, Cherlotte and boys are happy with the works and my support(You can ask them).
We have conducted the programs in 3 schools, for 2 days a week with 20 students per school. the program is about reason of pollution, polluted water, its treatment , relation between water and health etc. the method of training are: 1st day: enviroscap model demonstration, 2nd day: water testing (EWB and students, essay competition “Why the clean water is necessary for me Ilam and environment”)
