"Nepal Earthquake Recovery, Reconstruction and Resilience (3R) Project" has been initiated focusing in Tanglichowk, Makaisingh, Ghyalchowk and Bhumlichowk VDCs of Gorkha District from May 2016 onwards.

ECO-Nepal along with its donor DCA had been implementing the Earthquake Emergency Project (EEP) in VDCs of Gorkha District since April, 2015, soon after the mega earthquake of 15th April, 2015. The project ran in various phases utilizing funds from DCA, NCA, ERD and Diakonie.The project covered more than 12 VDCs in the early phase of relief response. In the recovery phase, activities were more conncentrated in seven VDCs: Baguwa, Dhawa, Makaisingh, Tanglichowk, Ghyalchowk, Bhumlichowk and Chhekampar. The project ended in April 2016.

Owing to the success of the EEP and the need of the community, new project "Nepal Earthquake Recovery, Reconstruction and Resilience Project" has been initiated focusing in Tanglichowk, Makaisingh, Ghyalchowk and Bhumlichowk VDCs. The project will be working on the progress made in the EEP in these VDCs and aim to establish a resilient community as a whole.
