Awasuka, after the Nepali words: Aawaas Sudhar Karyakram, means Habitat Improvement Program. Its mission is to improve the living conditions of rural communities in remote areas of Nepal, especially women and children, by empowering them with habitat-related technical skills to enable them to achieve “safer homes”.

Awasuka focuses on three main topics: seismic-resistance in architecture, health of houses and the preservation of historical heritage. One of the distinctive features of Awasuka is the creation of awareness material through the arts, using music, songs and dance, in order to reach the final beneficiaries effectively.
