The “Shelter of Hope” Campaign, initiated by #RiseNepal, a youth driven volunteer effort supported by the Global Peace Foundation and the Asian Pacific Peace and Development Service Alliance, has a goal to build 1,000 temporary shelters for these families. We’ve built 500, but need your help to build the remaining 500.
$125 covers the cost of materials for a shelter that can last a few years and then can be used for future building projects.

Roshani Sarki lives with her mother and sister in Lamatar. Their home was destroyed by the 7.8 magnitude earthquake that hit Nepal on April 25. They were living in a cold, leaky tent until the “Shelter of Hope” Campaign built them a temporary shelter.
Roshani’s mother told #RiseNepal,
” With our economic condition, we don’t know when we will be able to build a house. The transitional shelter you have provided will be our refuge for a few years. This will be a safer and comfortable place for my kids. They have a better place to study at night. We are really grateful to the volunteers and donors who helped us. “
Roshani’s family is just 1 of 500 who have benefited from the “Shelter of Hope” Campaign.
Casualties from Nepal’s three-month long rainy season have already been reported at the end of July. Despite recovery efforts focused on providing shelter for the hundreds of thousands of displaced, thousands still remain homeless.
