Project Title: Project Yeti, Nepal
Project Yeti commenced in 2012 and focuses on the provision of quality dental care, both preventative and restorative, to the underprivileged people of Nepal. Project Yeti operates on minimal costs thanks to the support of volunteers, including the Kopan monastery which offers free accommodation and meals for volunteers. The Monastery also pays utility costs including diesel for the generator used to run the dental equipment. In 2016 Members of Project Yeti initiated an oral health education program a school at the settlement in Salleri, Solukhumbu. The 2017 ICD funding purchased a second mobile dental unit for use in Kathmandu and for the provision of care in orphanages in the Kathmandu valley as well as further afield to the Tibetan settlement in the country district of Solukhumbu. The 2018 ICD grant was used for consumables, educational materials and travel costs.
