Part time (10-30 hrs/wk)
Short-Term (few weeks/months)
In response to the 2015 earthquakes, we're working to support the Sindhupalchowk region by providing access and education to sustainable technologies. Our volunteer team works alongside local community members to produce Compressed Stabilized Earth Blocks (CSEB), fill earthbags, ram earthen walls, plant trees, build permaculture gardens, and work with the local youth in schools.
WE STRIVE TO...
expand horizons and create community as we work together to learn, grow, and build. We believe that humanity must unite to meet global challenges with sustainable solutions. We understand that we gain peace, harmony & happiness through serving others, ourselves, and Earth.
We are friends and family, from all nations and backgrounds, working together from the ground up to explore healthy and practical alternative solutions to challenges faced by rural communities, starting in Nepal. Our mission is to inspire, mobilize and train volunteers to serve others with compassion. We create cross-cultural collaborations and encourage selfless service. We share. We live and learn, together. We partner with the local community to ensure that our programs are truly helpful, relevant and driven by local leadership from within the community.

LIVING IN COMMUNITY, SERVING COMMUNITY
Since the very beginning our work has been dependent on our network of compassionate volunteers from all over the world. We've built bamboo structures, retaining walls, produced and moved thousands of bricks, dug hundreds of holes for trees, made paper mache masks at the schools, and rammed earth into some of the strongest structures around. Our daily work is as diverse as the community we live in.
Our volunteer community varies from 20-50 people at any given time. Just as we serve Nepal, we serve each other. We take turns cooking meals, doing dishes, cleaning up our communal spaces, teaching workshops, and trading massages or chocolate.
Each month we host a 10-day volunteer program. Whether you are joining us for two weeks or two months, we ask that you arrive on one of these dates if you are interested in lending a hand.
