Take part in the rebuilding efforts and support the needy communities in this beautiful Himalayan country.
The remote areas of Kathmandu still have plenty of public buildings that are required to be upgraded to provide a better standard of living for deserving communities. Particularly after the earthquake, the status of such buildings of rural areas have turned from bad to worse. Therefore, we have taken up rebuilding projects in various remote villages for months and restoring back schools, hospitals and homes.
There are a variety of ways that students, tourists, professionals, organisations or any other interested parties can assist in the project. Through contribution of funds and materials, or through offering support through manual labour, you can help to rebuild and repair schools, playgrounds, libraries, hospitals, homes and many other facilities across a range of locations. As a result, you will tour Nepal while you work benefiting from the opportunity to experience the culture and beauty of this wonderful country.
Not just focusing on the present, but also looking towards the future, the project is completely aware of the positive impact the work can have on this generation of children. By restoring infrastructure at schools, orphanages and health centres, the children will be able to attend school regular and have a quality education. Their future will be brighter, filled with more positive opportunities than they currently have. Responsive to needs as they arise, the program will organise placements for participants in locations where they can have the greatest input.
On your arrival you will be taken to Sikdel. This is a remote village where the earthquake caused an extensive amount of damage to the local school. As a result, a project is underway to completely rebuild the school. At Mate village, a host family will accommodate you and provide you with food for the week. Being only a 30-minute walk from the construction site at Sikdel, you will be close enough not to need transport. However, the journey to Sikdel will take 4-hours on local transportation followed by a 3-hour hike through the stunning Himalayan mountains.
