We at Obrigado Portugal Association are committed to the success of the Our Dream Village Project confident that with your help we will be able to not only bring these 1,181 earthquake survivors home but to bring them home to a better future. Our grand plan includes the rebuilding of six villages including 222 houses, one school and one hospital in Tatopani, Sindhpalchowk, in the Himalayan Mountains of Nepal.
The reconstruction is just one part of the overall plan as we continue to work toward providing solutions to the readily identifiable challenges such as road accessibility, procurement of a secure water source and establishing a sustainable agriculture system. Additionally we will assist the local people in identifying and assessing various income opportunities thus ensuring the future success of the community.
