Nepal Earthquake 4-year update



It has been 4 years since the devastating 7.8 magnitude earthquake shook Nepal killing 10,000, leaving a million homeless and impacting more than 8 million people.

Moved by the devastation, hundreds of you entrusted us, Sahayeta.org to respond. This has been the most challenging and rewarding experience for our team and we are extremely grateful for your support.


In nearly four years, we raised $254,000, spent $248,410 and served 22,000 people together with our partners on the ground. Our projects initially focused on immediate needs, addressing food security and shelter. Eventually, we moved on to long term recovery projects with a focus on education and community building.


Our approach from the very beginning was to leverage the experts and the organizations who were already doing good work. We could not have done this without our wonderful partners and local leaders in the area we served:


Here is a snapshot of our work together:
