WHO ARE WE? 

We are a community of both Nepalis and those of other nationalities united by our love for Nepal. We want to help rebuild Nepal, share ideas and strengthen our bonds together. Our vision is to give back and help build Nepal over the long-haul.

We are the Seattle chapter of Nepal Rising, an all volunteer-run collaborative campaign administered by Nepal Ko Yuwa (NKY), a US registered 501(c)(3) non-profit organization (EIN: 45-2734874). Your donations to Nepal Rising Seattle are fully US tax-deductible.

We are involved in 3 key areas of Relief, Rebuilding and Resilience as follows:


RELIEF

Monsoon Flood Relief
Nepal Rising Seattle supports communities in times of severe need. During the massive floods in Nepal's Terai region in August 2017, Nepal Rising Seattle contributed funds to provide several weeks of essential food supplies for 300 flood-impacted families in 8 villages in Jaleshwor, Mahottari district, Nepal, working with Alliance for Disaster Relief on the ground. More information and updates available at Monsoon Flood Relief page. 

Medication and Winterization
During the medical crisis due to the blockade in early 2016, we provided essential medical supplies to 4 remote districts of Nepal through partnership with Medication for Nepal group. We also partner with  One Suitcase campaign to distribute winter clothing to needy children in rural communities of Nepal.


REBUILDING

School Reconstruction
Nepal Rising Seattle is partnering with Volunteer Nepal National Group (VolNepal) in rebuilding demolished schools in quake-hit Nuwakot district working in collaboration with the local community and governing bodies. VolNepal is a Nepal based non-profit organization that has been doing incredible work since 2005 and has been focusing its efforts on rebuilding schools and communities that have been impacted by the earthquake. 

We currently have two schools construction projects in progress - Neel Saraswoti Lower Secondary School and Sita Secondary School.

Community Development
Nepal Rising Seattle is partnering with Living Earth Institute (LEI) to provide clean water wells and build family toilets in Rampurwa VDC in Bara district. LEI has built over 700 family toilets in 8 villages in Rampurwa VDC over the last 8 years and declared it open-defecation free (ODF) in July 2017. It is a true statement that without sanitation, there can be no clean water!

 


RESILIENCE 

Community Farming
We are partnering with N-Agro to support community farming with the Sakchyam: Seeds of Life initiative to provide greenhouses, improved seeds and farming technology to yield more than 1.5 tonnes of vegetables harvests in a year to improve food security and nutrition to earthquake-impacted families. 

We currently have two community farming projects in progress - Suryamati VDC, Nuwakot and Dakshinkali VDC.

Women Entrepreneurship 
Nepal Rising Seattle is supporting women entrepreneurs to help expand their businesses and create bigger economic ripple effects across their communities. We are partnering with NR affiliate Daayitwa in the Women Rural Entrepreneurship Acceleration Project (WREAP).

We are currently supporting top 5 women entrepreneurs in the WREAP program in Palpa.
