Thus Thought has selected Chhinamakhu VDC as the site of the pilot project in the Bhojpur district of Eastern Nepal. This village was selected because it is the village that Chandra Rai was schooled and as a result our ability to organize and communicate in this village makes it an ideal site for our initial operations.
