The Partners Nepal and the Khunde Community had completed the construction of KITCHEN & TOILET attached to the Khunde Communal Building or Khunde Manilhang as of October 2019. The purpose of this kitchen and toilet construction was to provide basic facility for the local community to use this communal building for multiple use especially during times of natural disasters such as earthquake, landslides and flood etc. During normal times, the communal center would be able to host various social festivals, events, community meetings, conduct non-formal education, strengthening the local capacity and resilience by empowering youth clubs and mother’s groups in particular.
The Khunde community are already exhausted in using the community hall (communal hall) at Khunde Manilhang engaging them with both social and cultural programs and activities such as teaching (dharma) and Sherpa dance trainings for the youth) The communal hall will be equipped with small Sherpa artifacts, natural and cultural history displays and audio visual sets as well as completion of toilets and well hygienically considered kitchen.
The Partners Nepal express our sincere gratitude to the respected donors like Sir Edmund Hillary Stiftung Deutschland Germany, NepalHilfe-Tirol, local and international communities supporting this kitchen and toilet construction.There are no other words to describe our feelings when we see the Khunde Community Center is fully revived and it is ready to use for great purpose.

The Partners Nepal invested 23,5o0 for Khunde Manilhang Kitchen and Toilet and remaining balance was spent on cost for drawing the plan for Kitchen and Toilet, series of meetings in Kathmandu about Khunde Manilhang project, TPN’s field expense and expense booked for Social Welfare Council (KWC) for their project monitoring.
