Shree Hewa Socio-Cultural
Community (HSCC) [Shree Hewa Samajik Sanskritik Sanstha] has been founded in
2013. It is registered with the Social Welfare Council (SWC) in
Kathmandu under the number 406 as a non-profit oriented NGO. Before,
the organisation had been active for several years without registration
under the name Hewa Youth Club.
The HSCC is the initiative a young Sherpas from Yawa and Siteling, two
villages of Taksindu VDC in Solukhumbu (see more information on the village).
Some of them have found their way of living in Kathmandu while others
still stay in the home villages. But also those in Kathmandu maintain
very close relations to their villages in the mountains. They have the
intention not only to support their familes and relatives in the
villages but also to help developing their living conditions in a
The predecessor organization of HSCC has in the past already
implemented a number of projects in cooperation with the French NGO
"Népal et yous" that has been extremely helpful for the villages by
providing the necessary financial support and expertise. So, the
primary school of Hewa could be reconstructed with five classrooms.
Water supply for all houses of Hewa and Siteling has been installed. A
small power station has been built on the opposite mountain slope near Nunthala (Sherpa: Manidingma) where the VDC aministration is placed. It produces enough power for the
surrounding villages. Finally, a suspension bridge across the Hewa
Khola (Hewa river) has been constructed by the French NGO that makes the children's
way to the secondary school in Nunthala shorter and safer.
For the past 2-3 years, the HSCC has been trying to extend and
small mountain path from Taksindu via Chhulemo, Hewa, Siteling and
Akang towards Khumbu. The intention is to provide an alternative
trekking route to the Everest region. It could help the villages along
this way to improve their living conditions if trekking tourists can be
attracted to use this route. In future, it could be a path offside the
road from Phaplu to the Dudh Kosi valley that is currently under
In 2016, the HSCC has constructed a community centre in Hewa (see project). The German-Nepal Friendship Association (Deutsch-Nepalische Gesellschaft, DNG) is a partner in this project. It's construction has been supported by the German Ministry of Economic Cooperation.
Another project started by HSCC in 2016 is related to the
reconstruction of houses in Hewa and Siteling that have been destroyed
or heavily damaged by the earthquakes of 2015. Twenty per cent of the
houses have been declared as uninhabitable by the government though the
district of Solukhumbu is currently not in the focus of reconstruction
aid by the government. Another 25 per cent of the buildings are heavily
damaged. This reconstruction project is supported by the German NGO
Verein Nepal-Inzlingen as well as its partner organisation Rheinland-Lorraine-Nepal. Verein Nepal Inzlingen has got financial support for this reconstruction project from the Fürsorge- und Bildungsstiftung, Krefeld (FBS).
