April 25th, 2015 was the day that shook Nepal and neighboring countries by an earthquake that measured 7.6 on the richer scale. More than 8500 people died in Nepal and more than 30,000 people were injured all over Nepal.
Relief came from all over the world. A month after the earthquake, Mr. Mohan Lamsal and the Management team had a meeting as to how we could assist in the relief work. After much contemplation, we visited Nuwakot- a district badly affected by the earthquake. We came to learn that most of the schools in Nuwakot district had been destroyed. Looking at the long term needs, we decided to build schools in Nuwakot District.

The villages that we identified as the neediest of education were Arugote, Badeli, Peepal Danda and Jore Chautara. At the initial stage, construction was started at Arugote, the next phases will be at Badali then Peepal Danda. We estimate to educate 350 students at the primary level. The total cost for the construction of the school will be borne by Makalu Adventure, Bernhard Buehler from Switzerland, Roy Francis from UK, Tony Arden from UK and Geraldine Sweeney from USA. Makalu Adventure along with its partners from Switzerland, UK and USA is glad to announce the near completion of its first school at Tarukar of Nuwakot district in Nepal. This comes as a relied after the devastating earthquake that took place in Nepal on 25th April, 2015. The school is holds classes up to the 5th standard and expects to educate at least 80 students.

Our Community service is getting ahead. A group of 13 volunteers have come all the way from Switzerland to help in the reconstruction of 3 schools in Nuwakot district.

This is part of the relief work after the devastating earthquake that took place on April 25/04/2015 in Nepal measuring 7.8 richter scale and another one about 8 days later.
