OVERVIEW: Head up a building team in Kathmandu
ROLE: To assist with ongoing relief work and help renovate and rebuild schools and homes damaged or destroyed by the earthquake.
When: From May 1st - 21st, 2018
Dozens of communities across Nepal are still struggling to recover from the devastation caused by the earthquakes that struck in April 2015. This caused the death of approximately 9,000 people and displacement of 600,000 from their homes. After the immediate emergency response was completed, Projects Abroad launched the Building Project in June 2015 to help communities recover and rebuild. Since then, volunteers have made a significant progress in the Kathmandu Valley. However, there is still a great deal of work to be done and volunteers are needed to continue helping communities get back on their feet and I am keen to go and assist while between jobs!
The major focus of this project is helping children in affected areas and as a father of 4 kids, this project is especially important to me, as I believe every child in the community should have access to both a safe home and learning environment.
More than 50,000 classrooms were damaged or destroyed in the earthquake and there is an urgent need to set up alternative learning spaces.
As a builder I feel called to assist in the repair or reconstruction of these damaged schools and homes.

The funds I am trying to raise include:
$3,210 for the volunteer program by Projects Aboard
$971 For Air Asia Return Flight
$109 for Travel/Medical Insurance
Thank you so much for any support you are able to give! It is going to mean so much to me to be able to go and assist!
