Build With Nepal is a charity that was set up in response to the devastating earthquake of 2015, which destroyed much of Nepal’s infrastructure and affected the lives of many people. Almost nine thousand people lost their lives and over twenty two thousand were injured.
The ethos of the charity is to work with the people of Nepal – we are assisting those in need by providing the resources so that they can rebuild their own country. We work with local people and skilled workers so that they can rebuild using traditional methods in a sustainable way. There is a much more long-lasting benefit to communities when they are able to rebuild on their own, and it is our goal to empower them to do so.
The damage that was done to the country necessitates some form of assistance, and with some remote regions having yet to see any earthquake aid from the central government, we have taken on the task of trying to rebuild in these areas. With your help we can ensure that aid reaches the people where it is most needed. We are currently raising funds to help rebuild Kanpur School, using approved government designs. You can donate to this project through this website.
Build With Nepal was set up by 5 Nottingham University students, after we visited the country in 2009 on a charity expedition. We made lifelong contacts and connections, and the country kept a special place in our hearts, so when we heard about the devastating impact the earthquake in 2015, we were compelled to do something. No one in this organisation takes any salary, it is all completely run by volunteering our time and energy, and that’s why when you donate to one of our projects, almost 100% of that money goes directly to where it’s needed (the only costs we incur are small transaction fees for card processing and for sending money abroad).
