Background/Project: Many parts of the communities were destroyed to dust and many families lost their houses and properties during the 2015 earthquake. This massive earthquake not only left people poor but many people are now homeless and living in very cold and small temporary shelters. This tragic moment made VIN realize that the reconstruction of houses of poor families, public properties, religious temples, and cultural heritage sites should be a priority when supporting the people in the community.

After the devastating earthquake of 25th April, 2015, the situation in Nepal is desperate! VIN has been continuously involved in Relief work, which is divided into three phases; Rapid response / Rescue, Rehabilitation, Reconstruction & Sustainability.

VIN has already completed two phases, and we are now in the Reconstruction & Sustainability phase. This is a long term phase. We will be working until the reconstruction is complete in our affected communities. This project aims to support very poor and needy families to reconstruct earthquake resistance houses.

Objectives:

  • To support the rebuilding of Earthquake resistance homes for the most needy and affected families of VIN’s working communities.
  • To demolish damaged structure, clear debris and manage it.

Work / Activities:

  • Support the victims to rebuild earthquake resistant homes.
  • Demolish the damaged structure, clear debris and manage it.
  • Educate on safe earthquake resistant houses.

 

Placement Support Process: The first day is arrival day and each volunteer is greeted and received by VIN local staff at the airport and taken to VIN hostel / hotel.  On the second day volunteers will receive a full day orientation at VIN offices in Kathmandu. The placement orientation will cover cultural tips, survival phrases on Nepali language, health tips, preparation for project activities and an introduction to VIN. Volunteers will always be guided by a Nepali camp leader and VIN supervisors will visit them time to time for follow up and support. Should you have any concerns on the work camp, you may always call VIN for immediate help. On the last day of the work camp, volunteers will submit a detailed work report, fill up an exit form and sit with VIN executives for an exit interview and feedback session.
