Now under construction and slated for official opening in fall of 2017 our 3000 square foot plus community center will house a women's operated FM radio station, professional photo studio, podcast studio and film studio as well as computer learning center and space for yoga, learning Nepali dance and more. Fantastic new opportunities for volunteers in Nepal to engage with the locals, support the women of Her Farm and bring their skills.

A group of students recently visited Her Farm Nepal on a faculty lead trip from Touro Univerity in Las Vegas. The students gave health checks to many in the village at our new health clinic at Her Farm Nepal. In addition to seeing patients at the clinic the group walked the village looking for others who may not have heard about the group being at the clinic. At the local shop we found several patients the group examined and then sent to the clinic at Her Farm Nepal for treatments. Our Global Health volunteer program affords the opporunity to work both in an urban hospital and our rural clinic.

A group of volunteers, all students from Deakin University in Australia just finished two weeks of service at Her Farm Nepal. The volunteers were in Nepal to help constuct a new goat shed for the women of Her Farm Nepal. These volunteers worked hard and accomplished a great deal in a short time. Thank you Deakin Univeristy Students, hope to see you again in Nepal soon.

A group of volunteers from Australia is busy building another demonstration home at Her Farm. Following the April earthquakes in Nepal we've been building various earthquake resistant houses to teach local villagers ways to rebuild that are safer and cost effective. We've demonstrated earth bag buildings and gabion band buildings and now our volunteers are making an addition to the kitchen at Her Farm from bamboo and mud plaster.
Since the government has yet to provide any financial assistant to villagers who lost homes in the quakes, this particular method of construction is useful. Building a home from bamboo and mud plaster is very inexpensive, will last 20-30 years and is warmer in winter, cooler in summer than the stone ...
