An Eco Foundation in Nepal that one of our Greenhorns members visited is leading the way in sustainable relief post earthquake in their community, located just outside of Kathmandu. Their vision is to not only provide immediate relief, but to use this event as an opportunity to foster long-term, comprehensive, and sustainable solutions in the community. Currently they are organizing families in need into categories based on necessities such as water, food, housing, clothing, health, and safety.

Like many villages surrounding Kathmandu, Khahare has been significantly damaged with over 500 houses destroyed. At the foundation, their natural building techniques and recycled bottle houses we able to withstand the earthquake! This wonderful display of alternative building techniques also helps them be in a better position to give aid to the community.

See updates on their facebook page for continued efforts and look below for specifics on how to donate.

Dear Friends,
KRMEF suffered damage, but is still standing strong, including our bottle buildings. Staff, volunteers and interns all survived and are doing well, helping to organize and rebuild.

Now that the earthquakes have subsided, the foundation has decided to take the initiative to help rebuild the local community, starting with those most in need and expanding as we build our capacity.The following is a letter from Krishna explaining the situation, and how you can help.
