Help us REBUILDING a village of KATHMANDU VALLEY (Nepal)

We are in the Kathmandu Valley, Nepal. Our village, Changunarayan, has the oldest Hindu temple still in use in Nepal. Our guesthouse sits at the edge of the village at the hilltop overlooking Kathmandu and a large swath of the Valley.

Our mission is to help the local people who have been adversely affected by the earthquakes and to make it possible we've been working to uplift the economy and alleviating the poverty in the area after the earthquakes of 2015.

Our organization has been lending a hand in several different sectors as planting trees, attending to the street dogs, sponsoring books and warm clothing drives and hosting computer classes.

We develop the skills of local people through a Training Center that will provide vocational skills such as professionalize young people in a Computer Science Training Program and a High-Quality Carpet Waving course for a Women's Group in where they are making woolen, knitted hats and gloves in a nice, hand-loomed cotton bag.

The proceeds help to get these young people and women out of aluminum shelters and then to help the other people of the village who are still in shelters.

Our top priority is to return Changunaryan into a magnificent tourist site for both domestic and foreign tourists alike, that it has the potential to be.
