Nepal Rebuild Volunteer Programme

7 nights/ 8 days
Rebuilding Nepal …
On 25th April 2015, a 7.8-magnitude earthquake struck the Himalayan nation of Nepal causing large scale destruction. The number of deaths is about 9,000, while the number of the injured is more than 13,000 and about eight million Nepali people have been affected. It is the deadliest natural disaster in Nepal in more than 81 years.
The scale of destruction is so grand that Nepal alone can’t deal with it and therefore we need the help of kind volunteers like you.
Giving back in Gorkha…
We have chosen Gorkha for deploying volunteers like you because, first, the epicenter of the devastating earthquake was in this region.
Second, it is a remote part of Nepal and close to Tibet, away from cities like Kathmandu, so earthquake disaster relief hasn’t reached here as much as it should. The people of Gorkha are helpless, suffering and need your help.
And third, most of the trekking guides and porters are from the Gorkha region. They have lost their houses but luckily none of them have lost their family members.
Who is it for…
Construction time is typically 3-5 hours a day, leaving you ample time to relax and enjoy the beautiful scenery.
This is an ideal trip for those wishing to experience Nepalese culture whilst making a real different to the lives of the people from the Gorkha region.
