Post Disaster Relief: Reconstruction & Sustainability


VIN initiated its disaster relief project to help the victim right after the massive earthquake on 25th Aprll, 2015. We have completed two phases of disaster relief project

  1. Rapid response phase
  2. Rehabilitation Phase.

Now VIN’s future goal is “Reconstruction and Sustainability”

This is our long term phase. We will be working until the reconstruction completes in our earthquake affected communities. Our projects include

  • WASH (Water Sanitation & Hygiene),
  • Rebuilding Earthquake Resistant Infrastructure (RERI),
  • Earthquake Resistant Home Construction Education (REECH), and
  • Entrepreneurship Building.

We will be working under different phases simultaneously.

Note: The volunteers will be involved in the projects that VIN implements in the working sites like Okhaldhunga, Nuwakot and Kathmandu. Volunteers with special skills to suit the professional skills are encouraged to apply. 

The mentioned projects will run simultaneously. The volunteer will have to switch to another project under Post Disaster Relief project if a project is unavailable to work in.
