Earthquake resilient houses ­-yes it is possible

Written by Kira Kay on .

The first example stone masonry earthquake resilient Home Building is almost completed (in Timal, Kavre), inspired by Abari and completed by local masons in the village. New examples are in planning to begin after monsoon in Sindhulpalchok District with TEAM Nepal & Abari. If we can give healthy resilient examples and trainings to show how safer buildings can be accomplished with local materials then perhaps it can inspire many more villagers to build safer. Meanwhile LaliMaya is happy with her new family home!
