    What is crowdfunding?

    Crowdfunding is the new way to raise money for a personal cause on JustGiving.

    Story

    Hardly anyone in Nepal has been untouched by the huge earthquake on April 25. Many of our local team's homes have either been destroyed or badly damaged, and household possessions lost or damaged beyond repair. These funds will go towards repairs and rebuilding of homes, and replacing household goods (eg. cookware, bedding, furniture).
    This is not a short term relief effort. To provide emergency support to the people in Nepal we recommend donating via the D.E.C appeal - http://bit.ly/1ziJosf

    We've been running holidays in Nepal for many years, and have built some great friendships with our local team during that time and our many visits to the country. They have helped hundreds of our customers to enjoy a very special experience in their country, often putting themselves out beyond what is required to fulfil their roles as guides, porters or managing logistics. Many of our customers have asked how they can support them directly. This is our chance to help at a time of great need.

    This fundraising will help rebuild & repair homes in the longer term, and replace destroyed/damaged household belongings. This will take many months.
    We are not a charity and though we’ll provide updates we will not be documenting every repair or exactly how every penny is spent. You can be assured though that all your donation will be transferred to someone who needs it, with zero spent on administration (we will cover JustGiving's 5% fees, up to £2000). Unfortunately Gift Aid cannot be added.

    We will transfer all the funds raised to our local partner in Nepal, and appoint the director there, Mr. Narayan Aryal (who many of our customers will have met and got to know well) to manage the funds. He will distribute the money amongst his team of guides, porters and drivers, based on a basic assessment of need. If you would like some or all of your donation to go to a specific person, perhaps your guide or porter, then please contact us directly and we will allocate it accordingly.
