Progress on the Solukhumbu University Hostel!

ChristmasCampaign

Thanks to our volunteer team from New South Wales and our local partners on the ground, we are making great progress on the construction of our new dormitory for young women pursuing a Bachelor’s degree in Nepal’s Everest Region!

Australia Group Arrives 2014

Our volunteer team from New South Wales, Australia on the ground in Nepal!

This team is working to build the first phase of the six-room dormitory, which will serve 20 girls pursuing a Bachelor’s degree in Salleri in its inaugural year. The dormitory is being constructed with the earthquake-resistant and environmentally-sensitive earthbag building method, which we have used to complete four school buildings in Nepal in the past. We can’t wait to welcome the ambitious young women we work with in the Solukhumbu District to their new home next year!
