EARTHQUAKE RELIEF PROGRAM
In the immediate wake of the devastating Nepal earthquake, Ganga Ghar successfully provided relief to 1,500 families who were affected through the generosity of sponsors, donors, and volunteers in the U.S. and Nepal.
GOALS & PLANS FOR ACTION
Our goal is to support 500 families by giving them temporary shelter, food, and water. Our team has estimated that we can do this for an average cost of $50 per family, so we need to raise at least $25,000. The families will be located in Dhading and Gorkha regions, as they were the hardest hit and are remote areas where limited aid supplies and relief teams have reached.
HOW DID WE DO?
With your help, we accomplished even more than we set out to do. After the earthquake hit we set some ambitious goals, and with your help, we exceeded them.
Initially, our team had planned to help 500 families, but we were able to help 1500 families. We had initially planned to help families in 3 districts, but we were able to help families across 6 districts with the same funds. With your help, our team was able to accomplish two times the relief aid we aimed to provide. How did we do this? Our grassroots network connected us with a main tent supplier who offered Ganga Ghar tents at a nominal rate. Additionally, we activated a wide network of volunteers to assist in our efforts.
Financial transparency has always been one of the top most priorities of Ganga Ghar's mission. Following that same mission, our financial team has compiled all the donations and expenses of our most recent earthquake relief effort.
