We are proud to announce the completion and opening of Belingtar Primary School in Dhading District, Nepal. Thanks to our team, volunteers and sponsors Kimberly and Becca for making it all happen and giving the children a safe and beautiful space to study.
We are happy to announce that this Saturday we HAVE OPENED OUR FIRST EARTHBAG SCHOOL: Mahakal Primary School in Makwanpur district.
The project has been a real challenge for us due to many obstacles that constitute Nepal reality: strikes, gas shortage, inflated prices, festivals, cold weather, electricity blackouts, etc... The school site is located in a remote area with poor road access and at times our volunteers and workers had to carry heavy materials for hours uphill.
On the other hand the end result is INCREDIBLE. The school itself is beautiful, the kids and villagers are happy to have a new school, the workers were able to earn income and volunteers had an unforgettable experience that they will remember for the rest of their lives.
We would like to thank everyone who has participated in this project, and special thanks to Nathan, Roshan, Eric, Arnaud, Flo, Manish and Dn who played key roles in the success of our project.
Good Earth Nepal team attended first Earthbag Rebuild Nepal Summit in Kathamndu organized by First Steps Himalayas. It was great to see engineers, architects, builders, NGOs and non-profit organizations coming from all over the world and Nepal to share, learn and spread Earthbag technology. What a great effort to help Nepal to recover from Earthquake!
