Nepal Earthquake Update

The earthquakes in Nepal have devastated many of the remote villages where we have worked for the past eight years. Houses have collapsed. The schools we helped build no longer exist. Exactly how many people have died is unclear.

Now, in the face of unimaginable suffering, we dedicate ourselves to restoring lives. Our team in Kathmandu is working tirelessly to determine how to best use our resources in partnership with the affected communities.

We pledge that your donation will reach the people who need it most. Please donate now to help us rebuild Nepal.

UPDATE July 7, 2015: So far, we’ve raised a total of $110,000 from our individual and corporate well wishers around the globe. Based on the trust that all of our supporters have placed on us, we have decided to tweak our fundraising goal: we intend to raise $100,000 from individual donors and another $100,000 from corporate donors by the end of this summer. Thank you for all your support! Now, spread the word to  help us sustain our momentum and reach our updated goal.

UPDATE June 2, 2015: So far, we’ve raised more than $22,000 of our of goal of $100,000 from individual donors by the end of this summer. We have just successfully earned a $5,000 donor match during the month of May. Thank you for all your support! Now, spread the word to  help us sustain our momentum and reach our goal.
