Community stories

Dhan Kumare lives in Benitar, a rural community in the Gorkha region of Nepal. When the earthquake struck in 2015 it damaged the community water source and made water access much less reliable. Raleigh volunteers have supported Dahn to build a new tap stand, which will make water access much easier for her and her family.

Buddhi is an entrepreneur in rural Nepal. With support from Raleigh ICS volunteers, Buddhi constructed a poly tunnel and took the first steps into tomato farming. Since then, he has had success in growing five-star tomatoes which he sells across his and neighbouring communities, allowing him to build a very sustainable business.
