Bhagwati Tamang lays bricks in Jogimara, a village in the Dhading District of Nepal where Dan Church Aid, a member of the ACT Alliance, has provided a variety of support to local villagers in the wake of a devastating 2015 earthquake. Tamang, an experienced mason, has helped the ACT Alliance train other carpenters and masons in the community so they’ll be ready to help construct permanent housing once the Nepali government begins to disburse funds.
