Ethical fashion brand – Nepal Project 2017


Nepal Project 2017

The Nepal project was started by Kevan & Elizabeth Martin, who travelled to Bhanjyangaon near Shyapru within the Nepalese mountain ranges. They were accommodated for a night while trekking, in a home where 25 orphaned and displaced children from the 2015 earthquake are being raised by a young monk, Karsang Dawa, and his wife. All buildings have either been badly damaged or rendered uninhabitable. The children sleep in 2 rooms, boys in one and girls in the other, no beds and no heating. The children’s day to day life includes going to a village school, doing their own food preparation, cooking, washing and cleaning.

Our goal

The goal of this project is to rebuild the school and refurbish the accommodation building with Kevan, who is a retired builder and construction manager with 40 years experience, devoting his time to oversee the project. Funding will therefore be used primarily for building materials which will be sourced locally.
