Catholic Agency for Overseas Development (CAFOD) partnered with local masons for the Safer Homes Rebuilding project.
Giovanna Reda, Head of Humanitarian Programmes for Asia, Middle East and Latin America at aid agency CAFOD, said:
"Our humanitarian response includes supporting local partners to run training workshops with people from affected communities, so they can build safer homes that can withstand earthquakes.
"Women were disproportionately affected by the impacts of the earthquake - many lost their husbands and homes - and these workshops have been a lifeline for the women involved, allowing them to learn new skills and earn a living from them."
Rebuilding is underway for thousands of families.
80-year-old Krishna Kumari recently moved into her home.
She said: "Last winter I had a terrible problem; it was very cold and freezing. I had no place to go.
"Now, everyone who passes by, and my neighbours, they feel happy and praise me for this new house."
The rebuilding project faced many challenges due to monsoon rains, fuel shortages and price hikes, as well as delays in establishing the government's National Reconstruction Authority that coordinates housing reconstruction.
CAFOD received £3.9 million in donations across England Wales which helped the organisation respond to 15 of the worst-hit areas of Nepal following the earthquakes.
The charity also supported local partners to rebuild schools, repair damaged water systems, help communities restore their means of making a living and prepare for future disasters.
