Chaos to Community™ Nalang Project

nepal-flag-smallnepal-2012-09-07In June 2012 Communities Without Boundaries International visited the Nepalese village of Nalang in the Dhadhing district. The CWBI team carried out an initial fact finding mission at the local school, meeting with the principal, teachers and local community leaders. Youth Without Boundaries members participated in a tree planting campaign and painted several schoolrooms that were in disrepair.
Nalang village, which is three hours away from Kathmandu, the capital of Nepal,suffers from a lack of certain basic resources and infrastructure. Youth Without Boundaries member Rajan Pandit spearheaded the integrated development project and was joined by YWB members from over ten countries during the program visit. The Chaos to Community™ Nalang Project will oversee the improvement of the facilities of the Nalang Patle School and the construction of the village’s first library.

These development projects will be worked on almost entirely by local members of the Nalang community with the oversight and planning of Mr. Pandit. However, CWBI members helped to commence the improvements on the Patle School by painting parts of the structure and planting trees in the surrounding area. The primary focus of the Patle School improvements, however, is the installation of onsite restroom facilities and a fence that surrounds the grounds. Both aspects will contribute to the overall wellbeing and safety of the schoolchildren, affording them the opportunity to concentrate completely upon their studies in a secure environment.

Not limited to the improvement of the Patle School facilities is the addition of Nalang’s first library within the community. Mr. Pandit envisions this library becoming a central gathering point for the community, providing residents of Nalang an area to improve the wellbeing of themselves and their community. The library will provide an opportunity to break down caste barriers that exist in the community, as it will provide a space for interaction between people from the various castes and serve the entire community. Plans are already being made for the library to include a sewing training class, especially focused on poor women in the area. This is the first of many prospective vocational projects to be made available to members of the community through the Thati library.  Nonviolence and peace building education opportunities will also be made available to the residents of Dhadhing.
