We received these images from Bhupal at NCDC the other day – they were taken at Purnasmarak higher secondary school, Godak VDC, Ilam. The images show a health & sanitation class held by Bhupal, as well as toothbrush distribution.
These images came in from Bhupal at NCDC a few days ago.

Dear Barry sir Namaste.

Jun 29 to 30 [ 2 Days] 200 people celebrate that program in Namsaling high school compound with District line agency representatives.

Note – the IAP ( Indoor Air Pollution) is a project we helped fund over the last few years. It involved introducing a new type of cooking stove that led the exhaust outdoors as opposed to the old method of the smoke lingering inside the home.
This a brief interview with NCDF director Tony Makepeace in 2006 about NCDF and the fog collection process.
This document outlines some of the new EWB projects in Ilam.
This is the first new post in some time! Thanks to Rebecca Gibbons, a volunteer from Queens University working with NCDC, we have these new images of a health awareness program recently conducted in Namsaling.
Happy New Year, everyone!
EWB and NCDC conducted heath and sanitation training in December of 2011 in Ilam. The educational materials were donated by UNICEF Nepal, and EWB covered some of the modest costs of this program.
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.
