Citizen voices to aid in Nepal earthquake recovery

by Keystone Accountability Vetted since 2015 Top Ranked Effective Nonprofit


Over 7 million people were affected by a 7.8 magnitude earthquake near Kathmandu in Nepal in April 2015. Donations to this project help us collect feedback from those affected people and translate it into bi-weekly updates for first responders. In the days following a disaster, there is always much confusion and little coordination among governments and organizations. We provide them with first-hand information that improve livelihoods when the dust clears.

Ground Truth was created to fill a gap in the accountability architecture focusing on how beneficiaries themselves experience humanitarian aid. Its goal is to add the demand side of accountability in a field dominated by supply side initiatives focused on standards, guidelines, certification, consultation, capacity building and so on. Ground Truth offers the missing link, turning real time evidence from those who matter most into action.


This will provide bi-weekly updates to the field of disaster response and recovery organizations in Nepal.

Long-Term Impact

Citizens will direct the aid response intended to help them recover, influencing what gets built and where, as well as identify risks and wastefulness.
