Author: Subash Karki, originally posted on April 24 2017 - Sharada’s village in Nepal was destroyed by a cataclysmic earthquake in April 2015. In the aftermath she helped her neighbours rebuild their shattered homes and - with the help of a radio programme – went on to become one of a small number of professional female masons in the country.

When a major earthquake struck parts of central Nepal in April 2015, nearly all the houses in Sharada Dunawar’s village in Kavrepalanchowk were reduced to rubble. It was a terrifying experience. Her house had collapsed around her – crushing her belongings – and she had no other place to go. To ‘make sense’ of the disaster, the 24-year-old began helping her community rebuild their homes by helping clear wreckage and building temporary shelters.
