    Our friends (Gabriel Rodrigues, John Lee, Kevin Song, and Rashik Adhikari) will be setting off on May 14th for a 12-day trek to Everest Base Camp. They aim to collectively raise $17,600, a dollar for every foot of Everest Base Camp that they will climb and enough to provide a year-long school supplies for 176 earthquake affected school children. View Details
     
  2. Seeds for Resilience: A Sustainable Community farming Project

    Together with other Nepal Rising teams, we are raising funds to support rural farmers in three communities. Partnering with N-AGRO, (http://nagrofarm.com) we help local farmers in building five sustaniable bamboo green houses (pest-free Nursery) with local resources and participation, provide disease resistant improved seeds, and train farmers for:
    (i) seedling production,
    (ii) drip Irrigation system for greenhouse,
    (iii) crop management, and
    (iv) post harvest handling/marketing.

    Three such projects will produce up to 3 tons of vegetable per household per year and will support 450 to 600 households. Our project recognizes the natural environment of the community as assets and engages the community to foster local leadership development, entrepreneurship, and increase community capacity towards building and supporting community resilience.

  3. Stories of Resilience
    Liza Paudel and Dipika Shrestha coordinate with Nepal Rising Communication team to collect and promote stories of resilience.
    Please follow the stories here https://www.facebook.com/TheNepalRising/ 

    In illustrating the goal of this initiative, the team writes, “We have all been touched by the Nepal Earthquake that took place on April 25, 2015 in some way. While some of us lost our loved ones, others witnessed the tragedy first hand. Some of us that are away from Nepal lived through a roller coaster of emotions. Amid all the challenges, hope lived in the resilience of the Nepali people to rise from the rubble stronger and united, to rebuild our nation together. Hope also lived in the warm affection of all friends of Nepal around the world who came together in kinship to share this tragedy that shook Nepal. At the wake of the first anniversary of this earthquake, when most of us have barely begun to process our sense of unambiguous loss, we also see a perfect opportunity to heal, to hope, to thrive, and to dream of a resilient Nepal. As we commemorate this earthquake anniversary, we share our own stories of resilience and bolster our conviction for a resilient Nepal. We encourage you to join hands with us, share your experience, and be a part of the resilience story.”
