In Chapadi-1 village there is a group called Sundevi women group. This group does not have any place to gather and conduct their activities. They conduct their meeting and activities in the open space, sometimes in their own houses but place is not enough and have lot of inconvenient. To support this group NJSI is helping to build a hall.

Safety and Peaceful Environment Ensured

Shree Bhanudaya Primary school is located in Siddhipur area of Lalitpur district. In this area many people are migrated from other districts of Nepal for employment opportunity. The Nepali medium school is run by government which has ECD to 3 class. The number of the students are increasing gradually due to compound wall building as it gave the students a sense of security. Without wall school had become a place of animals, alcoholics and drug addicts. The School management committee requested NJSI to support to build the compound wall. NJSI conducted an assessment and agreed to support the school by building compound wall in collaboration with the principal and the teachers.
