Partnered with Edgecombe Builders, Mullins Design Group was fortunate to be part of this vital program providing building plans for Unako House in Nepal.
A 4,000 square foot multi-functional facility, called Unako House, in the Dang region of Nepal. The name Unako means “it’s hers” in Nepalese. This building accommodates Unako Scarf Cottage Industry, Unako Co-operative Office, CP Nepal’s field office, volunteers’ room, large hall with a kitchen, two retail outlets and living quarters for a caretaker. Unako House is a multipurpose building that acts mainly to support local women helping them towards their financial and educational progress as well as their personal empowerment. This building will provide opportunities for under privileged Tharu Woman and Young girls to take control of their future and thrive in their communities, through education, vocation, literacy and hope.
IWEN – Creating Possibilities
Mullins Design Group donates to the 2016 Creating Possibilities Bicycle Program for additional support. Once a girl is sponsored and enrolled in school through the Empowerment Through Education Program, she is given a bicycle at a time when traditionally she would be expected to carry out additional duties in the household. The bicycle allows her a quicker means of travel to and from school giving her time for both educational and family commitments. A bicycle also advances the family’s social standing in their community where few families have any means of transportation.
The bicycle allocation goes with a signed agreement to use dutifully and for their school purpose mainly. eAn oral oath is taken by the girls not to marry before grade 10 and study well. The allocation of bicycles and educational support to the students has helped to decrease the early marriage in the community. Besides this, the allocation has encouraged them for further study and the dropout rate has been decreased. From last 3 years, there is no drop out in the educational program.
Mullins Design Group is a regular sponsor of the BCSPCA golf tournament.
Our fantastic Sponsors are true Champions for Animals who make this event possible. With the support of the Kelowna community over the last 10 years, together we’ve raised more than half a million dollars!
