 A VAHW Turned Technician          

Born on 2033 BS in Lumle-04, Haijung, Kaski, Mr. Homnath Subedi passed SLC in 2049 and IA in 2055. After IA, he voluntarily served in a local primary school for seven years. He also started vegetable farming and cattle rearing during this period.

According to Mr. Subedi, his life changed along with his profession after getting the VAHW training from AHTCS in 2066. He opened a veterinary shop in his village Haijung from the very next day of the training completion. He started curing the animals in his village and also the equines carrying goods from Nayapool to upper villages. He is still providing medicine supports to those equine owners.

After getting the refresher training on Equine Behavior, Handling, Basic Medicine and Equine Welfare, it has become more convenient for him to cure equines as he gained more knowledge about them, Subedi added. Similarly, the VAHW refresher training given by District Livestock Service Office (DLSO), Kaski is more beneficial to him in curing other animals as well. “I walk for seven to ten hours to get to the farmers as they complain about the problems with their animals”, Subedi says. He reaches almost all adjoining villages such as Ghorepani, Ghandruk, Landruk, Chhomrong, etc. to cure ill animals.

His income as a VAHW is much better than that as a teacher. He is easily managing all his household expenses. His monthly income is above 20,000/- which is enough for him to send his son and daughter to boarding school. He also owns a veterinary store which gives him more income. He has also joined 18 months JTA class this year with intention to provide additional services like Artificial Insemination (AI).

Always seen on happy face, Subedi never hesitate to acknowledge AHTCS for whatever he is today. He would be wasting his energy as a laborer in Gulf if he hadn’t got the VAHW training from AHTCS, he states. His reputation in his village and his successful life is all credited to AHTCS.
