Rebuild Nepal Eco Construction Programme

Affordable Construction, Healthcare - Kathmandu

Kathmandu, Nepal

Why



  • Nepal has just experienced a series of devastating earthquakes in the last few months.

  • Numerous organisations have tendered relief. However, relief has been in the form of food packets and temporary shelters. This relief, though vital, is not sustainable. What is required is long-term, permanent solutions.

  • Samarpan Foundation is in a position to deliver permanent, seismic-resistant housing to the people of Nepal. In September 2014, we built and laboratory tested permanent housing that can withstand up to 9.8 Richter seismic activity.


Innovative Construction



  • As we are building in both urban and rural areas, the availability of construction materials varies.

  • Our innovative method of construction allows for the incorporation of locally-available materials, such as boulders, clay bricks and rocks, with fish net and cement.


Current Status



  • At present, we are constructing individual homes and free public-outreach clinics in the seismic-affected zones.
