In July 2011 we were thrilled to open Grace Women’s Home in the South East of Kathmandu Valley. There is space for up to 20 women and their children and we provide them with clean rooms, fellowship and food. We have started a bio-dynamic farm on the site.
Unlike the rooms that our women in Kathmandu were living in, there is running water and we have installed a back-up electricity source so that they aren’t plunged into darkness during the many powercuts. The home is far safer in an earthquake than the delapidated buildings the women lived in in heavily built up Kathmandu.
The building at the top is a meeting room where we hold training courses in addition to the sewing and literacy courses we run elsewhere. Eventually we hope to operate a business on the premises and provide work for our needy women.
