Help rebuild Nepal by visiting it

Nepal has been recovering from last spring's devastating earthquakes, which cost so many lives and caused much damage to the country's infrastructure. But the Nepalese people are hardy and determined, and they have been rebuilding their country with such endeavour that all seven of the UNESCO World Heritage Sites in the Kathmandu Valley are already open to the public. Now, foreign visitors to Nepal can help in the recovery task as a part of their quoted package price will go to a worthwhile earthquake relief project.

This scheme is valid from 1 August 2015 to 31 December 2015, and will see between $2.00 and $3.50 – depending on category and location – per person per night donated to an earthquake relief project. This means guests will be contributing to help Nepal in its relief and rebuilding efforts. Thirty hotels and resorts throughout the country are participating in this project and all visitors who use the services of our local partners, Malla Travel & Trek Services, will receive a certificate stating the amount of their contribution to the reconstruction of Nepal.   

Bamboo Schools Project

The Nepal based project builds schools for vulnerable and destitute children throughout Nepal. These children come from very poor Nepalese or Tibetan families; many have had to survive on the streets or have been forced into child labour. These children do not have the opportunity or the funds to receive an education under the present system. This is especially true for girls who are rarely allowed to attend school. In Nepal more than 50% of the population is illiterate. Having an education and better social fullfilment greatly improves their chances of finding employment and contributes to breaking the cycle of poverty that plagues the country.

ASMAN (Association of St. Mary’s Alumanae Nepal)

The association is a non-governmental organisation devoted to supporting underprivileged Nepalese women and children for the last nineteen years. The support encompasses health, education, cultural awareness and development.
