Second Annual Fundraiser to Rebuild Nepal
Bricks, bricks, bricks…beautiful, strong, inspiring bricks. Each day in Takure, we rise from our tents, share breakfast, and head once again to the training center where we make as many Compressed Stabilized Earth Blocks (CSEBs) as possible. These bricks already built a school, and now in the coming months they will be used to build a community center, an orphanage for 18 children and local homes. This holiday season, we are renewing our commitment to these bricks and the impact that they have.
The bricks provide jobs to youth without other options. They provide earthquake-safe building resource to families seeking a way to rebuild stronger and safer homes. And they provide a symbol – of hope, of strength, of unity, and of possibility.
We ask again that you consider donating to help us continue making bricks for community members around the Sindhupalchok region. Your donation will:
- Provide employment to 16 young men and women from Takure
- Help us double our brick production with a second brick machine
- Allow us to subsidize the cost of bricks to those in Takure, allowing families in need to build safe and beautiful homes
- Invest in the long-term success of the brick production facility as a social enterprise
Our long-term goal for the Training Center is to become a financially sustainable business run primarily by local Nepali staff, selling bricks to community members around the region. This will enable these bricks to be available for years to come and will allow for long-term employment of local youth. Each donation allows us to continue our brick production through the next months as we grow the company to serve families in need.
Thank you for your support!
