Press Statement
Dear friends of the media:
I would like to cordially welcome you to the press meet organized by Chaudhary Foundation today.
As you are already aware, Chaudhary Foundation is building transitional shelters for the survivors of the devastating earthquake that hit the country on April 25. You are also aware of the fact that we are constructing buildings for schools destroyed by the earthquake. We invited you here today to share with you the progress we have made so far on this post-disaster reconstruction and rehabilitation initiative. I sincerely thank you for the support you have extended toward us on this initiative.
On the 6th of May last year, we had announced through a press meet the Foundation’s commitment to build 10,000 transitional shelter homes to the earthquake-affected communities under CG Ashraya project, out of which 1,000 would be built through Foundation’s own funds and 9,000 through partnership with national and international organizations. We had also announced the Foundation’s commitment to build buildings for 100 schools under CG Shikshyalaya project.
Today, we are with you again presenting our progress so far. We feel proud to announce that that the Foundation has completed building 1700 transitional shelters to this date. Out of them, approximately 1000 have been officially handed over to the local communities. The rest are also being used by the beneficiaries although a formal handover event is yet to be conducted. There are more shelters under construction and we hope they are completed soon so that the people could use them this winter.
Likewise, we have completed building 30 school buildings, out of which 12 have been handed over to the local school management committees through formal handover events. Rest of the buildings that are not yet formally handed over are also being used by the respective schools. Our effort to help rebuild schools continues.
We aim to run the CG Ashraya and CG Shikshyalaya projects in the 14 most affected districts in central Nepal. Currently, we have been working in 10 of these districts, namely Ramechhap, Dolakha, Sindhupalchok, Kavre, Bhaktapur, Lalitpur, Kathmandu, Dhading, Nuwakot and Gorkha. We hope to take the shelter and school projects to other districts also.
