introduction Edit

Bimire was one of the hardest hit village in Nepal during the 2015 earthquakes. This left most of the stone houses and community structures destroyed, including many of the education facilities. The organizations Conscious Impact and Yuwa Unity Nepal saw this as an opportunity to offer an alternative approach to rebuilding using local materials in remote regions of the country.
