The first Youthlinc trip to Nepal was in 2015 right after several earthquakes devastated the country. Nepal is spread over an extremely mountainous region which makes it susceptible to high levels of earthquake activity and intense rainfall every year. These conditions continually wash out their roads and weakens the structural integrity of many buildings each year. These circumstances heavily damage infrastructure and leave buildings (schools, homes, etc.) in disrepair. This has especially detrimental effects on small, rural communities who are expected to fund rebuilds and structural repairs year after year.

Our in-country coordinator is Binod Rai. Binod and his family run a trekking company in Nepal called Insight Himalaya. He is also on the Board for Waves For Water. He has a mind for logistics, is a lifetime humanitarian, and is ecstatic to be working with Youthlinc. We are lucky to have him!

Our team will be working in two small villages outside an area called Godawari, just 45 minutes southeast of Kathmandu. Youthlinc works in the villages of Khanigaon and Lele. Both communities have tremendous need and are excited to welcome the Youthlinc teams with open arms.
