GMIN has built about 21 schools so far in Nepal out of various materials such as adobe, stone and earthbags. Successful fundraising will enable them to build another 20.
“School #18, Ciuridara, Dang, Nepal
Our volunteer Bidya Bajracharya had surveyed this village last year but could not support them with the required two rooms as they did not have rocks nearby and their mud quality was not good enough to make mudbricks. But after meeting Peter Jensen, also a Denmark GMIN ambassador has come up with the solution of building with earthbags. With this earthbag style we can build even in the most remote areas where there are no rocks and poor quality mud.
GMIN is a registered nonprofit organization in the USA and was founded by energetic and dedicated individuals who want to see changes made from a Grassroot level in Nepal. GMIN is based in New York City. We use local knowledge and collective intelligence to address the pressing issues of Nepalese society.”
