Sometimes, progress comes in leaps and bounds. But, more often, progress is made through the slow, steady, herculean efforts of groups of people coming together to solve problems in their daily lives. Nowhere is this more true than in Nepal, where GlobalGiving’s nonprofit partners are working tirelessly to provide relief to those locals affected by the 2015 earthquake. Your donations to the Nepal Earthquake Relief Fund have made those efforts possible. From clean water to nutrition education to retrofitted homes - your generosity has made a tremendous impact. We want to share with you some of the recent progress that your donation has enabled in Nepal.
