Khokana Earthquake Debris Removal Initiative

by Environmental Camps for Conservation Awareness Vetted since 2008 Top Ranked Effective Nonprofit Project of the Month Site Visit Verified


In Khokana, near Kathmandu, the recent earthquake destroyed or damaged nearly all of its 1,000+ houses. People are now living in tents and temporary shelters. There is an urgent need to clear the debris and rubble of broken buildings so that rebuilding efforts can begin. Unfortunately, the community cannot afford to pay for the heavy machinery and skilled labour needed to remove the rubble. We ask for your support to help the Khokana community clear the way for a brighter future.

The people of Khokana are living in tents and temporary shelters and the community cannot begin to rebuild because it cannot pay for the heavy machinery and skilled labor needed to demolish and clear dangerously damaged buildings and rubble.


Removing the rubble and salvaging reusable building materials will allow the community to begin rebuilding their homes and their lives. ECCA, as a leading organization in community development, is working with local government and the Khokana community to deliver the project. All funds raised for this project will be used to pay for machinery, labor and fuel needed to clear the rubble and demolish unsafe buildings.

Long-Term Impact

This project is key to the regeneration and future of the Khokana community. Without it, the people will not be able to rebuild their homes or their lives and will continue to suffer the indignity and pain of living in temporary housing lacking basic facilities, facing the risk of disease on a daily basis.
