Last Year’s Good Work at Good Earth Global

Good Earth Global does wonderful work around the world. Last year they built a dormitory for Resilient Steps, a Netherlands-based non-profit serving girls who are victims of child trafficking, child labor, sexual abuse, child marriages and other traumas. This was in Pokhara, Nepal, with the help of 30 volunteers from SOS Nepal.They completed four houses for women and their kids whose homes were destroyed by the 2015 earthquake, focusing on homes for widows and single women, in partnership with Lily Thapa’s Women For Human Rights.

Kaplana BK and her 3 kids moved in to their new house in March. Kaplana’s husband died 12 years ago. Kaplana and her children were living in a badly damaged house at risk for collapsing.
They built a house for the widow Karma Lhama and her daughter, Purnima. They are pictured here in front of the tin shack that served as a home before their new earthbag home.

They also built a house for Sabitri Tamang, who has no family and suffers health issues from living in a tin shack exposed to the elements.

They hosted service trips for several groups of teenagers from American School of Dubai. In a record time, just 3.5 days, 15 teenage students and their three teachers, together with Good Earth Global team completed the walls of a house for Him Kumari and her son.

Maybe in the coming year you’d like to be a part of all this, by sponsoring a structure, volunteering at a worksite or otherwise lending a hand. If so,get in touch with Good Earth Global.

  1. Brilliant work! To help build safe homes must be awesome and its inspiring to follow Good Earth Global’s mission.
    I believe the Nepal volunteer training is only US$750 for 3 weeks including basic accomodation on site approx 90 mins from Kathmandu and includes basic meals and snacks with the local families you are building with. Also includes airport transfers and one night hotel stay and a days training in Kathmandu so just airfare, visa and insurance on top.
    I’ve just started saving with the goal of traveling to Nepal in February 2021 to take part in this hands-on Good Earth Global volunteer training course and then start to help people back here in our earthquake and flood prone country. thanks again for this forum
