Help to rebuild Nepal


After the first earthquake on 25th April, Nepal was shown in the media all over the world. We could see the damage of Kathmandu and the villages, screaming people running around with their babys in the arm, people living in tents and crying.
The next big earthquake followed on 12th May. Again people died and houses have been destroyed. That time the media didn't spend so much time to show it and now it nearly disappeared in the news.

But the problem in Nepal remains. Many of them lost their houses and family members and live in very bad condition now. And the tourists don`t come because they got scared by the horrible news. The destruction concentrates on the villages. The capital Kathmandu and the region in the south seem very normal now and it is not dangerous to go there.
But the people in the villages need help. Many of them lost their houses and they don't have the money to rebuild it.

 

In this project you help especially in the village Gurgaon in Sikre which is totally destroyed. This Gurung village is located in the district Nuwakot, near Kathmandu. Right now we are rebuilding the school there. One of the 2 buildings is still standing but the walls inside broke down, materials like white board, forms and tables are destroyed and it has to be painted. 
The second building is completely destroyed and the students have class in 2 temporary shelters now which we built directly after the earthquake. These don`t have windows and water comes inside, so we plan to build this building new. Volunteers help to carry the stones for the walls, compound plaster and put it on the walls, paint the whole building, fix the white board and put the tables inside. There is a lot of work to do. 
If necessary you will also help to transport clothes, food and other necessary things to the village.

The living condition in Sikre is very low. The house in which you will live was rebuilded after the earthquake and is not very big. You have to share a room with the family. They have a toilet near the house and you have to take shower outside. There is a tube where water comes out so you can take a shower with that. It is few minutes far from the house and there only come very less people so you can take a shower in swimming clothes with the beautiful nature around you. During your stay you can also join with the family who works on the field every day and get to know the village life.
The village is very calm and during your free time it is great to just relax or go hiking on the paths around the village. When the weather is good you can see the high mountains of the Himalayas in the distance.
