In 2015-2016, The Rotary Club of Kingsville organized a  project to raise rabbits for food and income in a poor village in Nepal  which had been devastated by an  earthquake.   The project was carried out by Mr. Ujjwal Chapagain, owner of the Himalayan Rabbit Farm, under the supervision of the Rotary Club of Tripureshwor, Nepal.   Professor Steven Lukefahr, a noted expert in rabbit projects at Texas A&M University-Kingsville, suggested that we contact Mr. Chapagain, and was good enough to provide technical advice.    
The attached pictures show Rotary District Governor of Nepal & Bhutan Keshav Kunwar  visiting the project and show rabbit hutches built by the beneficiaries from local materials.   Please follow the following link to watch a U-Tube video about this  project, which has helped some 300 people:  First year funding of $10,131 was provided by a $2,000 Rotary District 5930 grant and support from our club, the Sunrise club of Kingsville, the Burnet Rotary Club, the Rockport club and Corpus Christi South Side.  Documentation may be found on the District  5930 web site.
The Rotary Club of Kingsville has initiated a 2nd year project with a similar budget to benefit a second village in the area.  We have sent our $2,500 contribution to Nepal, but need an additional $7,500.  Can you help us?
