To raise funds, provide support and rebuild destroyed homes and villages for a Nepal family in Budhasing Village. Our goal $10,000 to build 50 homes.
The April 2015 Nepal earthquake killed more than 8,000 people and injured more than 19,000. It was the worst natural disaster to strike Nepal since the 1934 Nepal–Bihar earthquake. Hundreds of thousands of people were made homeless with entire villages flattened, across many districts of the country. Centuries-old buildings were destroyed.
Who We Are
The Himalaya House Project grew out of my time in Nepal during the quake (my blogpost of Day 1 of the quake) and seeing the devastation firsthand. My friend Birendra Chudal, who has a trekking company and Ramesh Wasti from this area but working in Kathmandu, immediately started buying building materials and designed and built a house for only $200 in a devastated village. They have asked us to help raise funds for more houses.
We are initially building 50 homes in Budhasing Village in Nuwakot district, very close to the quake epicenter where 900 homes were almost completely destroyed. Each home costs only $200 each to construct and are simple structures made of wood, bamboo and aluminum sheet. This is our chance to make a difference.
