During the first EQ the family was on the way back from church and stayed outside. For the nights they found a good open place that felt safe. When the second EQ happened they were near the school and stayed on the grounds there. There was a lot of panic and people started to run away, they stayed though. Later on they started to sleep in their cow shed. A young couple with one small son. The HO used to run a tiny shop from his home (so it is not possible during construction). The building site is right next to Shiva Praja’s. As the case for most HOs in MP, the crops Shiva Praja grows last for about six months, so for some months he goes to Manahari, Tadi or Chitwan to earn money. The HO and his wife both participated in the construction and they cooked for the workers in turns. As they also had to look after their small child, their time was a bit limited, but they did their best. The HO and his wife are extremely happy and grateful. For them as a small, young family with only one child (yet) it feels very large. They say they would never have been able to build such a house on their own – and that it looks so beautiful. In case of another earthquake they would stay inside, as they completely trust in its earthquake resilience.

The HO was at his house with his family during the EQ, and they all rushed out. During EQ2 his children where at school, he was at home. He first thought he could continue to live in the old house as it was only partially damaged and didn’t look too bad to him. But when it was checked and judged by the government as unsafe he quickly destroyed it, to have the new house built on the same site. One daughter is married, with one child, and lives elsewhere, three of the other children, two sons and one daughter live with him and his wife in the household – which is a tent during construction. Another daughter, 16 years old, lives in nearby Palase to go to secondary school there, as there is none in Dhusrang. Their fields are nearby and they grow crops (maize etc.) for their own consumption, it lasts only for about five months per year, so he often goes to Chitwan to earn money. The HO is a very friendly and cooperative person who soon became the leader of the whole cluster. He was active from early morning to late at night and not only worked for the construction, but also organized meetings and saw to it that all information was passed on. The other family members were also very active, and his wife cooked for the labourers. The family is extremely happy about the new house and moved in right after the flooring was finished. The 16-year-old daughter who lives in Palase rushed home because she was so excited and wanted to see the finished house. The family decided to have the kitchen stove outside, on the porch, to make more use of the space within the house

The landownership is in name of her father-in-law, Hasta Bahadur Chepang. She has a 19-year-old son Mahendra. The crops they grow, mostly maize, last for about six months. Her son sometimes goes to work in Manahari, while she tries to find work in the area. Both mother and son were working on the construction, the son also cooked for the workers. Neighbours also supported them by contributing one work day per week. Mother and son were very happy when their house was finished and moved in with big smiles on their faces. Initially they had some difficulties collecting stones, sands and wood, but in the end they managed. They are glad about the timing – that they have a place to stay safe from the monsoon rains now. Theirs is a small-sized house (as their plot of land is not large the engineers had to develop a specific design), but for two people it is big enough.

During the Earthquakes, all the members of the family were working on the fields and therefore, luckily, no one was hurt. While the animals were safe in their hut, half of the main house of the family collapsed. For lack of alternatives, they have been living in the unaffected part of the building since. Lalit Bahadur is Krishna Bahadur's son, the landownership is in the name of Krishna Bahadur who also lives there, with his wife; Lalit Bdr has two sons and four daughters, two daughters are married and live elsewhere; a sister of the HO lives with the family too, but most of the time she is in Manahari for studies. Lalit’s brother Ratna is a beneficiary too, his house is close by. The HO helped with carrying materials and one of his daughters was also active every day. The cooking was done by the wife and daughter. The family appreciates the earthquake-safety of the house and the general protection it provides, being by far the highest located house of the cluster. They are happy about the vast amount of space it offers to make a home for their big family. With the stove placed at the porch, their daily life will be much easier and more comfortable.

The whole family was in the house during the first EQ and rushed out just in time – nobody was hurt. One of their fell ill then though, and they suspected that it was because of the earthquake. Mohan Singh’s father Chandra Bahadur and sister Thuli Maya are also beneficiaries. There are four children: one son, born a few weeks before the EQ, and three daughters, the oldest is nine years old. The HO sometimes has to work elsewhere to be able to earn money as the few fields are not enough to feed the family the whole year. The HO was very active and contributed with unskilled labour of any kind (carrying materials, site clearance etc.). His wife cooked for the labourers. Like his sister’s family, but contrary to most other house owners, Mohan Singh and his family decided to have their sleeping quarters downstairs and not in the attic, which they use as a storage room. After moving in they built their new smokeless stove outside, on the porch.

The HO was at home during the first EQ, his wife was in the jungle to cut grass for the animals and the sons were at home. Their simple wood house tilted, but nobody got hurt, the animals were also fine. During the second EQ, he was on the way to the mill to grind maize and was frustrated that he was not able to do so. The HO’s daughter is married and lives elsewhere; one of the two sons is also married, he lives in same household with his wife and young son. The HO is illiterate and one of the poorest of our beneficiaries. The maize the family harvests doesn’t even last for half a year. Support by SDA is considered here. Despite their extreme poverty all adults participated actively in the construction. Not at first though, they seemed to be a bit reluctant, but became more and more engaged during the process. It was very difficult for them to manage to cook food for the workers, but they did. For this family their new living conditions are an immense improvement, they are very glad about having a good roof now, strong walls, a secure door and about being safe should a strong EQ come again. Now they feel protected. Since the roof was up the family often slept there already, even though the house wasn’t finished by far. They are also looking forward to get their ecosan toilet.

During the first EQ they were working in the field, during the second one they were at home and rushed outside quickly, were very scared, but nobody was harmed. The son was away at work and came back after three days to everybody’s relief. Elder couple with two daughters, both married and living elsewhere, and one son, just married recently, lives in the same household with his wife. They have only small maize fields, so there is hardly ever enough food. Sometimes they eat only one meal a day. The son often works in Manahari as a tractor driver, but these months he helped with the construction, so it was hard for the family to manage their finances. Their old house was not that much affected by the EQ, but it was a very basic construction, more like a cow shed than a real house. The HO helped as unskilled labourer and was VERY active and motivated, despite his age. His son was also involved every single day and worked hard, he has some carpentry skills and was glad to be able to contribute with them. The son’s wife cooked and helped out with light tasks. This house was finished right before the monsoon started and the HO was very happy about the timing. It would have been very hard for the family to live through the rainy season in their temporary shelter. After the construction was done HO & son finished the flooring of the house quickly and moved in the very next day when the mud was dry. For the stove they plan to build a roof outside. They are also looking forward to having a ecosan toilet.

When the first EQ happened he was at his old house in Deutis and quickly ran outside, taking his granddaughter with him. The family moved into the cow shed then. That is where he was at the time of the second EQ, running out fast again. Nar Bahadur is a widower. His old, damaged house is in Deutis, but as he also has a plot of land in Dhusrang (which he inherited from his father), so he decided to build the new house there. His elder son, married with one daughter, still lives in Deutis. Like all MP beneficiaries Nar Bahadur is a subsistence farmer (growing mainly maize and millet), but the crops do not feed his family for the whole year. His son sometimes goes to work in Kathmandu or Chitwan. The HO was very active and motivated, but due to his age he was not able to do any hard work – but helped wherever he could. His eldest son sometimes helped, and the cooking was done by the HO’s daughters. The family moved into the new house only when everything was finished. The HO already built some kind of a low fence at the edge of the attic to protect children from falling down. To divide the room the family has hung up large pieces of cloth, but plans to build a real division wall.

They were all in the house when the first EQ happened and rushed out. A wall collapsed, but fortunately outwards. They all felt sick, but nobody was injured. During the second EQ they were working in the open field, and were safe there. Young Dalit family, with three sons (Bishal, Bishwas, Uchal) and one daughter, Bishnu Maya (she’s the oldest, 11 years old), a love marriage - and they are proud of it ;-), they have eloped together, she is from somewhere down in the valley, the parents of both have later accepted the marriage, he is quite a few years older than her. He suffers from a weak constitution and stunted growth (most probably due to chronic malnutrition during childhood). As a “special case” the family received more support from SRDP. As the family is Dalit, labourers did not want to eat food cooked by them, but another Ghodame HO, Santa Bahadur, a Tamang who is a good friend of the HO, cooked food for the workers at his place. They are subsistence farmers, but their crops do not last the whole year. Only light work was possible for the HO due to his frail constitution, so hired labour was organised to stand in for him on other sites. He did tasks like water carrying, fetching tools, tidying up the site, a little wood carrying, making aggregates. He participated well within his physical limitations. The family had already shifted to the attic floor even before the soling of the ground floor was completed. They already feel at home and find it very comfortable, although it is a small house design. Since the beginning of construction was postponed many times the HO is now very happy and grateful that it could be completed so quickly in only a few weeks.

During the First Earthquake all family members were outside in field working. The east part of the house was completely devastated. All family members including maternal uncle and his family. Both families together arranged emergency shelter with bamboo and plastic sheet. They bought food since food store was completely destroyed and lived in the same shelter till they get materials to construct improved emergency shelter The second Earthquake in May 2015 , did not bring any major effect as the house was already destroyed in EQ 1 and all family members were in temporary shelter. A newar farmer family by caste which has parents and two sons as members. They have no more land (except than the house where house is constructed). Father works as skilled construction labor and mother work in other's field. Elder son works in metal statue carving workshop. Both of them father and mother left all of their outside works and got engaged with construction process. They were selected in second round of selection. So house construction started bit late than others. But due to their effort and hard work they completed it on time. From early morning to late evening participation of house owner was remarkable. With such little amount of earning they had never imagined that they would get such strong, earthquake resistant permanent house. He counted that with their whole family earning it would have taken 7 years to collect the amount equivalent to the cost of this house. Had expressed their thankfulness to each and every individual involved in .

Purna Singh’s brother Iman Singh lives right next door – and that was where the family was during the earthquake, they were just having a meal all together. Everybody rushed out of the house in panic, just in time – a wall broke down. And they saw that part of Purna Singh’s own house had collapsed. SRDP gave the family materials (tarpaulin etc.) for a temporary shelter to live in until the new house was finished. The HO couple has nine children, but three died at a young age, of the living six children one is a girl, the others are boys. The two eldest boys are married, one of them lives in Kathmandu, the other one is just moving back from Kathmandu with his wife. The third son lives in Kathmandu as well, working there. The two-year-old (looking much younger due to prolonged illness) and the eight-year-old boy and the four-year-old girl live with their parents. The HO is a subsistence farmer, but the crops (mostly maize) do only last for about six months, so the HO has to look for work elsewhere. Purna Singh’s brother Iman Singh lives right next to him and is an SRDP beneficiary as well. Purna Singh worked as a woodcutter during construction and was also involved in other tasks. His son Bal Ram also worked on the construction site. Purna Singh says: “Just by looking at this house, I feel safe and I can imagine how strong it is.” During construction the family lived under some tarpaulin tent, but as soon as the CGI sheet was up they moved into the house when it rained hard and also slept there – every morning they moved their few belongings back to the tarpaulin before the workers started.

The HO was down at the river during the EQ, while his family was at home. Afterwards they didn’t enter the damaged house anymore and stayed outside next to it during day time and at night they slept in the goat shed. When EQ2 happened he was in Manahari to see a doctor, but got back home okay. One daughter is married and lives elsewhere. His father Krishna Bahadur and brother Lalit Bahadur live nearby, they also take part in SRDP. He is a subsistence farmer, growing mostly maize and millet, which last during the year, so he usually does not need to go to work elsewhere. The HO participated regularly in the ODHR process, along with his wife, they took turns cooking for the labourers and helped carrying materials. Problematic was the location of his house (and his father’s) – some 45 minutes walk from the next construction sites. HOs were reluctant to come that far to work, so construction at his house (& father’s) lagged behind for a while (but caught up). The family only moved in when the house was completed in all details. They reused the ornamented eaves boards of their old home and fixed them on the porch of the new one.

Everybody was outside when the earthquake happened and was extremely scared, but to their relief no one was hurt and also the animals were all safe. They still lived in their old house during construction, which is very basic. The HO inherited land from her father Chandra Bahadur; Mohan Singh is her brother; all three beneficiaries live in close proximity. There are two sons, one born in January, and three daughters, the oldest is 12; the older kids attend school. Crops from their fields last only for about six months, so the HO’s husband sometimes goes to Manahari to do unskilled labour. The HO’s husband is very active and helped the carpenters and masons, carried materials, sawed wood – he would do any work to help with the construction. The HO also helped, but also had to look after her baby (born in January). Thuli Maya and her husband were happy to move in with their five children. Contrary to most other house owners they decided to sleep downstairs, on the ground floor, and not in the attic. They use the attic as a storage room.

During the first EQ Phool Maya was working on the field. Her eldest son was at school in Kalikatar, another son was at home and had no idea what was happening when the mud wall started to crumble – he first thought a rat was working on it. Her father-in-law, Karma Singh, was in the forest and held on to a tree. They moved into their cow shed then, that’s where they were during the second EQ. Landownership is in the name of Phool Maya's father-in-law Karma Singh Waiba. Her husband Ram Singh Waiba has gone to Malaysia and hasn't been heard of since, leaving her with three young sons between six and eleven years. Crops from their fields last for about nine months per year, for additional income she needs to find work nearby. As Phool Maya’s old house has been demolished she stays at her brother-in-law’s house next door with her sons and her father-in-law. Phool Maya helped doing light work, such as chiseling aggregates, cooking or carrying mud / stones / sand or wood. She worked on the construction site every day. She moved into the new house along with her sons and her father-in-law, happy to finally escape the cramped conditions in her brother-in-law’s household.

She was inside the house when the upper floor came crashing down – but she wasn’t hurt and was able to get to the neighbour’s house – to her family’s big relief. HO with some influence in the area and slightly better off than others. He has enough land to feed his family (and enough helping hands (his sons) to farm it. He often acts as a broker in the area. When they were young boys Santa Bahadur and Navraj, another beneficiary from Ghodame, a Dalit, made a live-long friendship pact, called “mit” in Nepali (not a common occurrence with an “outcaste”). He has seven sons, the youngest is ten and some of the older ones are already married and live and work elsewhere. His only daughter is disabled. As HO is less poor than other beneficiaries he paid higher self contribution (otherwise he wouldn’t have been accepted into the project) and helped to organize materials (such as wood) and their transport. He also helped reduce discriminations against a Dalit HO in his cluster. He, his wife and their sons helped with construction. The last task to finish a house is the HO’s responsibility: flooring – which was done by the HO and his sons quickly and properly. The family did not shift into the new house right away, they first organized a Buddhist puja to mark the moving in as an auspicious event – SRDP staff attended as well.

At the time of EQ1 the HO was at Palase where he worked at a construction site, and was just taking tiffin. His wife and children were at home, also just having a light meal. They did not sleep in the house anymore, but outside, later on in a tent.The couple has five young children who go to school. Their house is right next to Iman Singh’s, another beneficiary. They grow their own crops, mostly maize, which lasts only for about six months per year. So the HO needs to go away to earn money, often on construction sites as an unskilled labourer. The HO was very active and cooperative. As he had worked on construction sites before, the work was already familiar for him, and he also improved his knowledge about masonry. His wife also worked on the sites, and other relatives helped out sometimes as well. He enjoyed this team work – “We learn to help each other”. The HO finished the last tasks (such as flooring) very quickly so he could move in with his family. He is very satisfied, especially with the space of the house.
