Tipling, a remotest village in northern part of Dhading district is witnessing historic milestone with the completion of the road. The 27 km Xavier marg construction from Somdang, bordering Rasuwa district, has gone through the most difficult terrain of steep and rocky hill sides up to Tipling.

Nepal Jesuit Social Institute, financially supported by Xavier Network, undertook the road construction as part of the earthquake rehabilitation and reconstruction activities and has been conducting various other activities like agriculture training and providing economical support for animal husbandry and planting cash crops for the upliftment of livelihood of Tipling. Now with the completion of Xavier marg, NJSI will make remarkable improvement in the socio-economic and psychological development.
