School being constructed using trusses Suji, Manoj


Utilisation of iron trusses and iron pipes makes the construction process quick and easy, although their cost is high and transportation to rural areas is challenging. Mukrap Devi Higher Secondary School in Borang was being reconstructed utilising such trusses. The school reconstruction was financed by the United Mission to Nepal (UMN) and facilitated by Himalayan Community Salvation Society (HIMS-Nepal). Taken during the 2nd phase of fieldwork conducted by the research team based at Social Science Baha in Kathmandu, Nepal, as part of the SSHRC Partnership Development Grant, ‘Expertise, Labour and Mobility in Nepal’s Post-Conflict, Post-Disaster Reconstruction’.
