Hamro Tewa Gaun Gharma Reflection Program
Hamro Tewa Gaun Gharma Reflection Program

After the earthquake of 25th April 2015, three different relief and recovery programs were conducted to help support the rebuilding process of the damages made by the earthquake. One of them is the Shadow Barefoot Volunteers -Hamro Tewa Gaun Gharma (HTG) which started in July 2015, where 22 volunteers from unaffected districts were sent to the earthquake affected districts to help the women survivors and their community at large. The main objective of the program was to help women and their community to come to normalcy after the EQ. The volunteers are currently working in 6 affected districts –Sindupalchowk, Gorkha, Dhading, Ramecchap, Kathmandu and Lalitpur .Volunteers were trained and oriented in the initial period of the program with periodic review and reflection sessions. On 4th and 5th December2015, HTG reflection program was conducted to plan and reflect on the success of the program as well as look at challenges faced by the HTG volunteers.
