THE STORY:

NIVAS INC wrote -

Join us in our campaign to rebuild Nepal! We are rebuilding homes destroyed in the earthquakes, growing the valuable construction skills of 5,000 people and planting 1,000 trees for future generations. This campaign is ambitious, but with your support and our Nepali partners efforts together we are aiding in the recovery of Nepal’s Solukhmbu District. What we do today will set a course for safe building practices, environmental sustainability and healthy lives for generations to come. We've already begun work on the ground with the support of our generous fan base and we're close to 1/2 way there. We just need to raise $20,000 more to get more families inside safe shelter.  Help us reach our goal by the end of the year!

This project is comprised of 3 Components:

CONSTRUCTION Our partnership provides crucial building materials hiked in by way of porters. Having access to well-engineered building products allows families to put a roof over their heads quickly, efficiently and for the long term.

EDUCATION  We’ve contracted expert Nepali structural engineers to conduct Earthquake-Resistant Building Workshops for villages in this rural region of Nepal. The techniques taught in these workshops incorporate simple and effective strategies into the vernacular architecture of the area. This allows stronger building to be available to all and maintains the beautiful style that is quintessential to this culture. Essentially rebuilding a better Nepal for a more resilient future.

REGROWTH During this time of significant rebuilding, Nepal’s forests are being taxed with the burden of providing enough material to meet the demands of construction and vast areas of land and trees have been destroyed by landslides. The consequences of deforestation include loss of animal habitat, detrimental impact to air quality and loss of natural erosion control. Along with our construction and education programs we are replanting 1,000 trees. Not only will this protect the ecological balance of these forests, it will also increase the sustainability of the construction trades for generations to come.
