Dolakha Learning Center Update

After the earthquakes of 2015, and the severe damage inflicted on the school buildings in Dolakha, the NLF was involved in the building of a learning centre composed of a computer room and a library and another room to provide a resource to the community and school after the school buildings were devastated. Apart from the building itself geotechnical work needed to be carried out. Significant assistance for this was provided by BGC Ltd, a Vancouver based engineering company. The building and engineering work has now been completed and was recently (Jan 2020) visited by Dr Sara Shneiderman of the University of British Columbia who has carried out research work in the area.
