Our mission

To raise funds, provide support and rebuild destroyed homes and villages for a Nepal family in Budhasing Village. Our goal $10,000 to build 50 homes.

The April 2015 Nepal earthquake killed more than 8,000 people and injured more than 19,000. It was the worst natural disaster to strike Nepal since the 1934 Nepal–Bihar earthquake. Hundreds of thousands of people were made homeless with entire villages flattened, across many districts of the country. Centuries-old buildings were destroyed.

Who We Are

The Himalaya House Project grew out of my time in Nepal during the quake (my blogpost of Day 1 of the quake) and seeing the devastation firsthand. My friend Birendra Chudal, who has a trekking company and Ramesh Wasti from this area but working in Kathmandu, immediately started buying building materials and designed and built a house for only $200 in a devastated village. They have asked us to help raise funds for more houses.

We are initially building 50 homes in Budhasing Village in Nuwakot district, very close to the quake epicenter where 900 homes were almost completely destroyed. Each home costs only $200 each to construct and are simple structures made of wood, bamboo and aluminum sheet. This is our chance to make a difference.

Help us rebuild destroyed villages and complete shelter for a Nepal Family

Why You Should Donate

We fund homebuilding in the most destroyed rural areas where villagers will generally only get help from their extended families. Your $200+ donation will have an immediate and huge impact on the village.

Our Fundraising Goal

Our goal is to raise $10,000 for 50 homes. 100% of the money donated will go directly to build the new homes. There are no administration costs. There are minor bank fees for sending money.

Who Is Involved

The Himalaya House Project is a partnership of committed Nepalis from this area and our charitable foundation in America. We are committed to raising funds, providing support and building homes in Nepal that will ultimately save lives.

Why It Works

The Nepalis are hands on, capable and devoted. It's their families at risk here in the upcoming monsoon and later in the harsh winter. We are equally devoted to raising funds and providing support.

What You Get

The satisfaction of building homes in Nepal that save lives immediately. We’ll identify each donated house with a donor plaque and will send you a photo with the new family in their new home.
