This website offers an introduction into the small village of Hewa, formerly Yawa, that is part of Taksindu VDC, Solukhumbu district in Eastern Nepal. It tries to give you an understand of this area as well as the history and culture of its inhabitants, who are predominantly Sherpas. We want to show you the rapid development of the village in recent years but also the remaining problems Hewa is confronted with because of this modernisation. HSCC plays a leading role in this development process, though there are some other organisations and initiatives. Finally, we should not forget the great support that the village has got and is still getting from a number of friends and foreign NGOs.

The above linked trekking agencies are run by leading members of HSCC who live in Kathmandu. They regularly return to Hewa and invest as much time and money as possible in the development of the village. Sometimes they also bring tourists and, thus, add to the income of the villagers.

The website is still in a state of development. Currently, it concentrates on introducing texts, but pictures will be added to these texts soon. A number of videos and slideshows are already accessible. They are going to be extended as well.

Hewa in October 2016
The village of Hewa (formerly Yawa) where the HSCC has constructed a socio-cultural centre for the village people of Hewa and neighbouring Siteling. The centre has been built on top of the small hill on the right. The smaller buildung right in front of it provides a kitchen and guest rooms for treckers. The complex below is the village primary school that is currently going to be extended by the government. On the left of the socio-cultural centre you can see the healthpost building that is under construction. (Photo by Klaus Bender, October 2016)
