FK-meetin-DakaThe FK Mid Term Review and Round III Planning Meeting was held on 25th-27th SeptĀ in Dhaka, Banglades. The meeting was hosted by Practical Action, Bangladesh. Also present for the meeting were representatives from PEEDA, Nepal, TARA, India and the Ms. Cherry & Mr.Sacha from FK Norway. Tarayana is represented by the Project Manager Roseleen Gurung and Director , Programmes ,Sonam Pem. The meeting was organized to review the activities of the participants, to revise any changes and plan for the next round. Tarayana was the lead partner for this phase, and the next is yet to be decided between TARA & Practical Action. Tarayana will no longer be a partner in the next phase, as FK is officially facing out from Bhutan. So far, the Foundation managed to send out eight of our colleagues to work with partner NGOs in the region. All of them had the opportunity to specialize in green technology skills like : Rainwater Harvesting, Bio-Gas, Eco-San Toilet, Pico-Hydro,Waste Management, Compressed Earth Block (CEB), eco-Stoves, Climate change and Solar.

For this last Phase, we have one of our colleagues Dhendup Tshering in Nepal with PEEDA and Jigme Wangchuk with Practical Action in Bangladesh. They will complete their exchange programme in April 2015.
