Our Humanitarian Work

Nepalese People Helping Other Nepalese People,

Helped Out By Friends from Around the World

We are very proud of the fact that we conducted the first scientifically-designed survey of the earthquake survivors after the disaster that showed exactly how they were living and what services they knew they needed in order to get back on their feet. Our humanitarian services are designed to fill the needs that the earthquake survivors expressed in the survey. We hope you will take the time to read about the survey by CLICKING HERE.


Before the Earthquakes

Here they are learning how to embroider a Sari
to help this young boy for his treatment who was in big road accident
SUPPORTING HOUSEHOLDS OF ORPHANS by providing homes for widows and needy children
One major project which began years before the earthquakes was advocacy to convince the government to put in a motor bridge over the Sunkoshi River which would connect about 3,000 people in isolated villages with health care, economic opportunities, and a more modern way of life

Promoting Education by Helping to Build Two Schools in Isolated Areas

Immediately After the Earthquakes

The Worst Devastation Was in Isolated Mountain Areas. Entire Villages Were Completely Destroyed

In these Isolated Mountain Areas, Homeless People from Several Villages Assembled Hoping for International Aid that Was Slow to Arrive.

We distributed Scarce Supplies Like Tarpaulins and Blankets to Help People Make Some Sort of Shelter

This Woman was Living in the Remains of her Animal Shed

We Organized 100 Nepalese Volunteers to Build Emergency Shelters for Elderly/Handicapped People in these Isolated Villages. The Village Elders Determined Who Would Receive the Valuable Help Since Basically Everyone Was Homeless at that Time. The Building Materials were Donated by the International Friends of Community Service of Nepal

Madhav Met and Coordinated with the Government and International Relief Committees to Advocate for Villages who Had Not Yet Received Aid

Then He Reported Back to the Village Elders that Help Was on Its Way

He Also Reassured the Frustrated and Hungry Villagers Who Had Lost Everything

Meanwhile, Back in the City, We Kept an Entire Orphanage of 30 Children Alive While they Were Forced to Live Under a Tarpaulain for Six Months. 30% of the City Was Homeless, so Finding a Rental for 30 Children and Their Caretakers was Impossible. Finally, Madhav was Able to Arrange Secure Housing for Them and We Continued to Support Them for Two More Years Until They Were Able to Be Placed in a Government Orphanage.

We Began Organizing Micro-Business Seminars to Help Stimulate Economic Recovery

At This Point it Became Obvious That the Earthquake Survivors Knew Better than Anyone What Their Needs Were

So We Developed and Implemented a Baseline Survey to Learn What Services to Provide for Them.
