Why choose Nepali For Nepali?

Nepali for Nepali (NFN) is a non-governmental organization that registered after two major earthquakes struck Nepal in April and May of 2015. Almost 9,000 people lost their lives and 590,000 homes were destroyed leaving millions displaced. Tragically, a large percentage of deaths could have been avoided if buildings had been constructed in a safe, earthquake-resistant manner. Lying on the meeting point of the quickly converging Indian and Eurasian tectonic plates, it is expected that Nepal will face more large-scale seismic movement in the future. Nepali for Nepali aims to introduce a new building technology to greater Nepal that will prevent such disasters from having such a huge impact again.

Mission Statement
NFN’s mission is to provide technical information and support on Interlocking Block construction to communities in Nepal. We work directly with locals, giving them the tools and knowledge to build in an earthquake-resistant manner.

How it all Began

Our team came together after experiencing the 7.8 magnitude earthquake that devastated central Nepal. Almost 9,000 people lost their lives and 590,000 homes were destroyed. In response, Nepali for Nepali formed. We began as a handful of locals and two foreigners dedicated to providing emergency aid to the thousands of Nepalese who lost their homes, loved ones, livestock and all sense of security.
