In 2018, the Chepang community approached KEEP to seek support to develop a community
birthing and general health care center. With the help of ‘Santé Sans Frontière’, KEEP in
partnership SWAN began the construction work in Kalitar Village, Chitwan District. Kathmandu
Environmental Educational Project (KEEP) and the Social Welfare Association of Nepal
(SWAN) then started project jointly for the remaining construction. Kathmandu Environmental
Education Project (KEEP) and Social Welfare Association of Nepal (SWAN) signed the
Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) on 25th April 2022 for the construction of health post.
KEEP in the collaboration with ‘Santé Sans Frontière’ and SWAN collaborate to provide
financial support to enhance and strengthen the facilities of health care services for the people of
the chepang communities in ward number 13 of Rapti Municipality in partnership with a local
NGO. The project is now almost completed. It was initiated on 2018 and completed on 2023.
