BaliyoGhar

BaliyoGhar is the newest NSET program, tasked with supporting disaster- resilient reconstruction of houses following the 2015 Gorkha Earthquake through standardized training, awareness and demonstration. BaliyoGhar program is a five-year Cooperative Agreement for Housing Reconstruction Technical Assistance with the goal of promoting earthquake safer housing reconstruction through owner-driven approaches.
 
In response to the huge need of trained human resources required for large scale reconstruction, the BaliyoGhar program strives to carry out multi-disciplinary trainings and orientation programs with the main objective to ensure disaster- resilient construction of houses through awareness, training, demonstration and support on code compliance. The idea is to establish and institutionalize an organized and systematic approach for Nepal's earthquake reconstruction with built-in earthquake-resistance of buildings.
