7.8 Earthquake Epicenter

On April 25, 2015 the most deadly earthquake since 1934 hit Kathmandu and surrounding villages. Close to 9,000 people lost their lives, tens of thousands were injured,  and hundreds of thousands were left homeless. A very large aftershock occurred weeks after on May 12, 2015 and hundreds of aftershocks continue today. Safe schools are a necessity. It’s a simple as that.

Project Location

Kathmandu

Kathmandu is the physical and cultural capital of Nepal, with close to 1 million people in population. It is a culturally rich city, dating back at least 2,000 years. The primary religion is Hinduism, followed by Buddhism. Nepali is the most commonly spoken language, and tourism is the most important industry which is no surprise in this beautiful, serene, and meaningful country.

Founding Project-The Orphanange

NYCDS

The NYCDS orphanage is our first project and is how we began in 2010. Currently and for the past 6 years, we fund all of the education, food, medical, solar, and water projects for these 49 children that stole our hearts from the beginning.
