Construction of a safe access road

The former situation

The village of Yanchok lies somewhat to the north of Satrasaya. The inhabitants have asked us to help build a stairway on the existing road to gain access to the fields and to Satrasaya. This road is very steep and extremely dangerous during the Monsoon rains, especially for the women carrying their heavy baskets. Frequently people have fallen down, causing unnecessary injuries. The road is being used by 13 villages and 197 families.

The new situation

The beginning of 2008 the last phase of the improvements to the access road has been completed. The road now has safe, rigid steps, which is a wonderfull result. All villages contributed financially to make this project a success. The local inhabitants are very content with this new safe road.
