The houses have been built at Tarakeshwar, a village near Kathmandu, Nepal with voluntary contribution of students, teaching and non-teaching staff of the organisation.
These houses have been built with earthquake-resistant material to provide relief and rehabilitation to the earthquake-affected families.
Under this project, three colonies have been built with the approval of the Nepal Government. Nepal was hit by a devastating earthquake of magnitude 7.9 on April 25 which destroyed nearly 1,60,000 houses and displaced lakhs.
