Social Development

Sustainable development in Nepal is something that offers an option for many rural communities that are not only battling problems with post-earthquake reconstruction but also problems such as malnutrition, sanitation, health, education and site specific problems that differ between each village and community. Communities in rural parts of the world want to have the opportunity to develop in whatever ways they can, but many times they simply do not have the resources. It is not for a lack of trying or wanting, but simply due to numerous factors that can make it incredibly difficult to take even incremental steps towards their goals of development, whatever those may be.

Working with the Chaudhary Foundation during the summer of 2016, I had the opportunity to not only learn, but to experience the importance and impact of sustainable development. For instance there is no one way to go about solving a problem. There are many pathways and alternative avenues one can take to successfully resolve an issue, whatever that issue may be.

Baseri is some 60 KM away from Dhadingbesi, the headquarter of Dhading district. It is beautifully located in the northwest part of Dhading bordering with villages of Gorkha. It almost takes about tedious four hours of off road drive to reach here. In some areas, a vehicle has to cross rivers driving through huge rocks on the driveway in the river. One cannot imagine how the road transportation be like on this roadways during monsoon time. A vehicle has to drive through a feet deep dust throughout the road to Baseri except in some wet areas in drier season. Although, Baseri is directly connected by road transportation to the capital of the country and the district headquarters, there are an adequate problems and difficulties persist in livelihood of poor villagers. Among many of those problems, Chaudhary Foundation has helped Baseri community by providing 266 CG Ashraya homes.
