Mai Ogawa and Her Contribution in Kirtipur

Mai Ogawa and Her Contribution in Kirtipur

People could even mistake her for a Nepali for she speaks our language with undoubted eloquence. Mai Ogawa is a Japanese volunteer from JICA (Japanese International Cooperation Agency) residing in Kirtipur, Kathmandu from last 18 months. She has been working as a community development officer in the environment section of the municipality office with her counterpart Gyan Bazra Maharjan.

In our conversation, I asked about her volunteering experience in Kirtipur, focusing on her involvement in the ongoing solid waste management program. Her major task is to reduce the solid waste in Kirtipur. For this, she gives various trainings to aware people about the solid waste management. She also spreads local awareness by teaching people how to reuse the solid waste. Her trainings are mainly centered towards women. She has taught them to make shoes out of vain clothes, basket from newspapers, etc.
