This project plans to build acommunity center in Baneshwor, to provide trainings related to income generation and to operate awareness programs such as public health and government services. With funds from the Kathmandu municipality, the construction of a learning center at the project site (the World Peace Temple compound) is already underway. The community center funded by the Japanese Embassy will be built in the same building on the second and third floors, reads the statement.
