Chyangsar: Construction of Farming Facilities

Roots for Life developed an overall concept for Chyangsar in order to promote the sustainable development of individual villages. In addition to training the women in sustainable organic vegetable farming and renting or cultivating the fields, the village also needs the appropriate infrastructure for the successful implementation of the project. Now Roots for Life can realise the construction of the necessary farm buildings. These have several functions: They are not only the place where the women grow, acquire and process plants, but also a place of communication where they can attend lectures and general training courses and celebrate village festivals.

Land has already been purchased with the help of Fair Styria and the following buildings are currently under construction:

  • Training Hall

This will be the central place in the village. Until now, there was no place where more than five to six people could gather and work in one house. This is especially important in the rainy season and in winter. In times when working outdoors is not possible, people are taught knowledge: Training and education take place here. In the training hall, the harvest is also to be processed and later sold.

The training hall is mainly financed by the Networkers for Humanity.

  • Farmhouse

In this house the entire production - as far as a kitchen is needed - will take place. The housekeeper also lives in this building. She keeps the farm in good shape and takes care of the grounds and the animals. Guests such as trainers or visitors can also stay here during their stay.

The farmhouse with guest rooms and sanitary facilities is financed mainly by Soroptimist International (Union of Switzerland and France).

  • Adjoining Buildings

In addition, some stables for oxen and chickens, toilets and showers were built and a water supply was installed.

Our role

Since the 2015 earthquake, Roots for Life has initiated the activities of the training farm together with the women. The inhabitants of Chyangsar are partly involved in the construction of their farm buildings on a voluntary basis. Women and men work together. Many were employed by Roots for Life directly on the construction site, e.g. as carpenters or porters. While Roots for Life ensures the financing, the construction committee of the local women's cooperative takes care of the implementation. Roots for Life is represented by employee Kusang Tamang and advises the women.
