Biogas Project continued success……
Latest news update –
As you know we have been working with a renewable energy organisation – Nepal Biogas Sector Partnership (BSP) in promoting green nand clean energy resources. Thanks to our financial and human resource support for biogas in the remote districts of Nepal this renewable energy will soon be available across the whole of Nepal. Our investment has now reached 5 of Nepal’s most remote districts: Manang, Mustang, Jumla, Humla and Mugu! Here’s a word from the Chief Executive of BSP Mr. Saroj Rai: “BSP has been working to promote biogas across the whole of Nepal. Despite our efforts
we have been unable to do much in remote parts such as Manang and Mustang. After your financial contributions, moral and other supports we have been able to make a breakthrough. We are very proud to have worked with you and take our technology to the most remotest parts where people are in great need. Thank you very much!”
