Volunteers Needed in Nepal for Earthquake Disaster Relief
Projects Abroad

May, 2015

In the wake of the recent earthquake disaster in Nepal on April 25th, Projects Abroad is calling for volunteers to help with meaningful earthquake recovery work through its Disaster Relief project. 

Projects Abroad has worked in Nepal since 1999 and has long-standing relationships with many organizations in Chitwan, Kathmandu, and Ghandruk, especially with schools, children's homes, hospitals, and conservation areas. All have been affected. 

The main objective of the Disaster Relief project is to help rebuild these communities that have been our partners for over a decade, and to show them that we stand with them when they need it most.

The Disaster Relief project will begin on June 1st. Work will begin the Kathmandu Valley, in rural and semi-urban areas that surround the city. Volunteers will renovate schools and homes, build pit toilets, assemble tent schools in camps for displaced families and teach in them, as well as other give other outreach and childcare support. The project will expand into other regions as work is completed and participation grows.

Volunteers will be accommodated in basic housing, either a guesthouse or a camp ground, as conditions permit. Throughout they will be supported by full-time local Projects Abroad staff.

Volunteers can join at any time and stay for as long as they choose, for a minimum of one week. The project will run for as long as it is needed and the organization anticipates that volunteer aid will be crucial for the next several months. 

For more information on how you can get involved, please contact Projects Abroad or visit www.projects-abroad.org/volunteer-destinations/volunteer-nepal/building/disaster-relief/.

About Projects Abroad

Projects Abroad was founded in 1992 by Dr. Peter Slowe, a geography professor, as a program for students to travel and work while on break from full-time study. The program had its genesis in post-USSR Romania, where students were given the chance to teach conversational English. After a few years just sending volunteers to Eastern Europe for teaching, the company expanded to sending volunteers of all ages around the world on a wide range of projects.

Projects Abroad is a global leader in short-term international volunteer programs with projects in 28 countries and recruitment offices in the UK, Australia, Canada, Denmark, France, Germany, Ireland, Italy, Japan, Holland, Hong Kong, Norway, Poland, South Africa, South Korea, Sweden and the United States.
