School Building Trek With Rich & Zach

Help Us Rebuild The Future

We will be traveling to Nepal in April 2018, 3 years after the 7.8 magnitude earthquake rocked the Kathmandu area. We will be trekking 3/4 of the Annapurna circuit from Syange to Jomsom over a period of 8 days. We are trekking to raise money to build a new school in an area where 99% of buildings were damaged and completely destroyed. 100% of donations will be going to www.kidsofkathmandu.org to continue their rebuilding efforts.

This money will be used to build a 6 classroom school complete with a purified water system, a library with computers, portable solar lights, as well as implementing the UN's WaSH program by training teachers and local community leaders. This school will serve hundreds of kids in rural Nepal. The library will also serve as a community center where meetings and business can be conducted. The water system will bring clean water to everyone in the village. The computers will not only help the students learn but will also help empower local farmers and merchants.

In rural areas of Nepal, the farmers do not usually know the selling price of their crops in the markets because they sell to a middle man. However, the third party buyers pay the farmers next to nothing to buy their crops and then they go sell it to the markets. The computers allow the farmers to better understand the worth and value of their crops so they can be paid a more fair and reasonable wage. Visit Kids of Kathmandu above to learn more about the organization and our previous work.
