THE YANGRI HOPE PROJECT:

RESPONDING TO THE DEVASTATING EARTHQUAKE IN NEPAL

We are adopting the village of Yangri in Nepal for immediate relief work, for reconstruction, and for long-term partnership. This is how HimalayanLife is responding to the double whammy of the two powerful earthquakes in Nepal.

Yangri (N27° 58’ 32” E85° 38’ 04”) is situated centrally in the district of Sindhupalchowk, which has been so terribly devastated by both earthquakes. The village has 80 houses (all of which have been destroyed by the earthquake) and a population of about 500. 37 villagers lost their lives in the ruins of their houses during the quake.

PHASE I: RELIEF

Food and temporary shelter: assuring availability of sufficient supply of basic staple foods and tarps for temporary housing. Delivery by helicopter or Jeep. Total cost  US$ 10,000

PHASE II: REBUILDING THE INFRASTRUCTURE

PHASE III: REBUILDING RESIDENTIAL HOMES

PHASE IV: LOCAL JOB AND INCOME GENERATION

PHASE V: EDUCATION (as the project’s anchor in the community)
