On April 25, 2015, a 7.8 Magnitude earthquake hit Nepal, killing over 8000 people, injuring twice as many, and leaving hundreds of thousands homeless. Two weeks later on May 12, 2015, another deadly 7.3 magnitude earthquake hit Nepal that took lives of over one hundred people, and left already damaged natural and man-made infrastructures crumbling. This project helped provide food, shelter, and medical care to the earthquake survivors, and will help build 800 temporary homes.

Many houses were destroyed by last month's earthquake. As the monsoon has arrived, these people are not sure if their temporary homes made of plastic tents will protect them from the monsoon rain. The BTF has taken initiative to help these people rebuild the houses. We can provide a stable, metal roof (that can withstand monsoon rain and hail) to 800 houses for only $92,000.


We have collaborated with a local non-profit (Help Nepal Network) to help build these temporary homes. The volunteers and the villagers work together to purchase and deliver corrugated tin roof (Jasta Pata) and other building supplies to the villages, and to build those homes. The materials can be used to build permanent homes.

Long-Term Impact

A strong, comfortable temporary home for each family. The same materials used to build these temporary homes can be used to build permanent homes when the people are able and ready to do so. Improvement in mental, physical, and social well being of approximately 800 families that lost their homes due to the earthquake.
