The community training center is constructed at Chautara Sangachowkgadi Municipality ward no. 10 Karkitar. The grant assistance from the Ministry of Foreign Affairs (MOFA) Japan and the Embassy of Japan is used to construct one storey multipurpose building.

The project was jointly carried out by Institute of Cultural Affairs (ICA) Japan and Institute of Cultural Affairs (ICA) Nepal in coordination with a local partner Rural Youth People Concern Forum in 2018. The major motive of the training center is to provide space for community meetings, training, facilitation and seminar; provide space for income-generating activities; provide space for students, researcher and educational institutes for conducting residential research and seminar; and provide space for agro-eco tourism promotion.

On the event, Mr Inui Tomoyoshi, a representative from ICA Japan expressed gratitude to local villagers and regional leaders for providing opportunities to participate in the process of development. Similarly, Prof. Dr Tatwa P. Timsina expressed that the training center would be a platform for the overall development of the community.

The management committee of the training center formed by local people will be responsible for the sustainability and overall maintenance of the building.
