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.

Status

  • Samarpan has constructed a public-outreach clinic in the seismic-affected zone.
