Kathmandu. In a significant development, the Indian Embassy in Kathmandu and Nepal’s Ministry of Federal Affairs and General Administration have joined hands to execute four crucial projects in the country. These initiatives, backed by Indian grant assistance, focus on both the education and water supply sectors.
With an estimated total budget of Rs 170 million, three of these projects concentrate on enhancing the education system, while the fourth aims to improve water supply and sanitation facilities. The construction of these projects is expected to significantly elevate the quality of education and provide better access to clean water and sanitation for local communities.
This collaboration is part of India’s ongoing efforts to support Nepal’s development. Over the years, India has successfully completed 483 out of 546 community development projects initiated since 2003. These projects encompass vital areas such as healthcare, education, water supply, connectivity, and sanitation.
Implemented largely through local Nepalese authorities, these initiatives highlight the strong bond between the two neighboring nations. The newly-signed memorandum of understanding is another step forward in this enduring partnership, promising further progress and improved living conditions for people across Nepal.
