Satyarupa Karki, 35, is a road building group member in Mugu, one of the remotest and most underdeveloped areas of Nepal.  Since March 2014 she has worked on the construction of a 23km stretch of the local road network being built under the Rural Access Programme (RAP).  Satyarupa’s work digging the track and carrying stones to the construction site will connect remote communities to essential services.  And, for the first time, she is receiving a wage.
