I enjoyed volunteering with RECED.  I had lot of fun while installing the solar home system in remote part of Nepal, and gave me a satisfaction when i turn on the bright solar light. I loved travelling through the greenery hills, paddy field, and more warm welcome by the community. Keep it up!

We are student of Masters in Cambridge University. Thanks for Engineering without Boarders (EWB), UK , who gave us  an opportunity for the monitoring of Improved Cooking Stove project in Lekhani, Baglung.

We are very much thankful with RECED for their well managed project schedule and kind hospitality showed by the community. It was such a huge project that 370 households had got improve cooking stove, and more then 20 people were trained to construct it. Whole village has benefited immensely by the project.

We really enjoyed the virgin landscapes, green forest and fresh air of Baglung. Cultural program and Nepali food were great. Thanks you very much for running such a wonderful program.

RECED staff organized and assisted profoundly during my research time in beautiful villages of Nepal. My research thesis was in “The case for PV computers systems in Nepali Schools. I have got enough information, and support from the concerned schools.

Computers run by PV power hs helped immensely in remote school, and saved their time by coming all the way to city for question paper designing and printing. Thanks for RECED for running such a supportive program in the community.

Thanks for Sailendra Basnet from RECED for his commitment to the research and his best efforts to keep me out of trouble during the fieldtrip. Also to his wife, Dia, for her great logistic support.

Kurk Fran, Biogas Program

Early each morning before the sun rises, rural Nepali women start wood fires that will be used for the day's cooking. Thick smoke fills their homes as a fire burns in a small pit in
the center of the floor. While this may seem picturesque, in addition to causing respiratory problems, gathering the wood is labor intensive and contributes to deforestation. Read More

Program is a wounderful example of how little money with lot of enthusiam from individual involved you can do lot of work in practical term. We arrive one day and no lighting and within two days light in the school class room. And we have lot of fun, and we dint come just fot trek!

Abviously, beofre we did the project there is not light in the class room. We saw the class room, were dark. All the students start 6 am in the morning. After we install the light, we sit in the class room, with the students and English teacher. We can see the black baord is visible, studetns can see their books. Infinitive amount of improvments in the school after the project and we have learned from it.

When we arrive at the school, the class rooms were very very dark. The school starts from 6am in the morning. They got smokey kerosene light in the clasroom . So, they can not see much at all. After the solar installation, we can see how bright is the class room, and glad to see everyone. I am quite happy and satisfied with the work that RECED is doing.
