UNM students and faculty building women’s community center in Nepal

For the last two weeks, six University of New Mexico students, three faculty members, two volunteers from New Mexico and 14 local laborers have been working on a new women’s community center in Bahunipati, Nepal. Two local coordinators and a junior engineer have been valuable in helping get the project off the ground.

This effort is driven by UNM students who had visited and worked in Nepal before the earthquake. They formed a local group UNM4Nepal and are supported by faculty members who had been working on a project funded by the National Science Foundation when the earthquake struck. The UNM team was determined to assist the local community in some meaningful way.
