Nepal – major new project
SI Leeds is delighted to support the construction of a building for the Jitpurphedi Women’s Agricultural Co-operative which already brings together over 800 women to help them with growing and selling of agricultural produce and to provide microcredit among themselves, education and practical classes. We have provided a major contribution to the funding, and the project is being undertaken in conjunction with VIN on the ground and with some help from members of SI Kathmandu who work on other projects in the area. The building will provide space for a shop, stores, meeting places and offices. We look forward to hearing of the progress and some Leeds club members plan to visit later in the year.
