I just read a new survey of local people’s opinions on the #DisasterRelief effort in the most affected districts. Enlightening and distressing. Every response overwhelmingly negative.  One of the questions was “Do you feel you’ve been heard?” 75% responded no. This is the linchpin, and we can do better.  I think they’d get a different answer had they surveyed #Karmidanda! Pictured here is the local team trained to manage their own aid. #ParticipatoryDevelopment #ParticipatoryRuralAppraisal #LearnToListen #ListenToLearn #NepalEarthquake #NepalPhotoProject #NEPAN #InternationalDevelopment

Ready or not, the monsoon is coming. We’ve been working really hard here to support #Karmidanda and its #CommunityDriven plan while coordinating with the government and oodles of NGOs. Not easy. Our goal remains to see each family in this village with safe #shelter and #sanitation in the next few weeks. We’re getting close. #NepalEarthquake #MonsoonIsComing #ParticipatoryDevelopment #ParticipatoryRuralAppraisal #DisasterRelief #AintEasy #WishUsLuck

A quick view of the #SocialMapping and #GroupDiscussion that went down in lower #Karmidanda today. The same thing happened in middle and upper Karmidanda. 6 hours later voila! We’ve got ourselves a community driven monsoon protection plan. #NepalEarthquake #ParticipatoryDevelopment #ParticipatoryRuralAppraisal #JustGettingStarted #Listen #Empower #Heal #ILoveNepal

Our participants got some #LeadershipTraining today in our #PRA training Day 2. We’ve learned and practiced our new tools and skills, and are ready to put them to the test. Tomorrow we’ll go out in #Karmidanda and make our #monsoon protection plan. Wish us luck! #NepalEarthquake #CommunityDriven #Development #ParticipatoryDevelopment #ParticipatoryRuralAppraisal #RebuildKarmidanda

Day 1 of #ParticipatoryRuralAppraisal  (#PRA) training today! Our future leaders sectioned off #Karmidanda and mapped their perception of its layout, highlights, opportunities, and areas of improvement. We learned a lot and had a good time doing it :) #NepalEarthquake #ParticipatoryDevelopment #Development #CommunityDriven #CommunityMapping #RebuildKarmidanda #ILoveThis
