EverTrek have teamed up with local Nepalese charity Altruistic Hands to re-build Kalika Primary school.
Over the last few years, EverTrek Managing director Andy have spent many times trekking, climbing and enjoying life in Nepal. Unfortunately in 2015, a 7.8 earthquake destroyed countless homes, schools and village killing almost 9,000 people and injuring over 22,000. More than than 2.8 million people were displaced and 5.6 million affected.
Andy was shocked to see what condition some of the remote areas of Nepal are in, with limited electricity, water, housing and that in some parts, food and work were difficult to obtain. Yet, amidst all of this tragedy and destruction, Andy was treated like family without ever being asked for anything in return – truly being humbled by the people’s generosity.
Since returning to the UK he has wanted to give something back to Nepal and we want you to come on that journey with us. If you can help, it’s simple, all you need to do is buy 1 brick, 2 bricks or as many as you like to help us reach our target and to re-build 2 classrooms at this primary school and help this communities future.
