Interaction Programme on the “Issues of Marginalised Communities in the Reconstruction”, 23 March: the event was organised by Samata Foundation who shared the achievements and issues related to marginalised communities in the reconstruction. Local representatives from Dolakha, Sindhupalchok, Gorkha, and Dhading shared their experiences and highlighted some of the challenges faced in their areas. Earthquake affected households present at the event shared that they have not been able to receive the GoN housing reconstruction grant due to a lack of land certificates, houses are not being approved despite completing required corrections, lack of subsidised loan, and grievances not addressed despite filing the application. At the end of the programme, Mr. Yubraj Bhusal, the NRA CEO, urged everyone to get involved in the housing reconstruction program focusing on marginalised and vulnerable sections of the population so that they can access information on the housing grant and be able to construct their houses within the given time frame.
