Bamboo in janakpur
Harsar, a tiny village near Janakpur, is where our construction is taking place. It is a small impoverished Maithili village, which has a mix of Hindu and Muslim community who are living in a relative harmony. However, the vices of untouchability, child marriage, superstition and inequality still haunts this village. Most of the people make their living through farming, but the young people are migrating to India and Gulf countries for better paying jobs. The area is rich in natural resources mainly in bamboo, mango, eucalyptus trees etc. CareNepal is trying to promote bamboo as a modern construction material, and they have chosen Abari do so. We are using the old materials but with modern connection and bending techniques.
