Nepal is still recovering from the devastating effects of the April 2015 Earthquake where thousands of lives were lost, homes destroyed and basic services have still not been returned in many areas. As part of the February 2016 trip, the OzGreen team travelled to the Sindhupalchok region, one of the worst affected in Nepal where re-construction support is planned. OzGreen also trained 26 new Youth Leading the World Facilitators in Nepal.
Support for Re-construction
OzGREEN and Bellingen Chamber of Commerce are supporting re-construction after the Nepal earthquake, working in partnership with and South Asia Foundation (SAF). Funds ($3000) have been raised for a demonstration home reconstruction. We plan to provide ongoing support through training, volunteering and in-kind contributions and to seek additional resources to support sustainable development and youth leadership.
