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.
