Nepal Community Rebuild Trip & Information Night

Nepal has some of the most stunning, remote mountain ranges in the world; however, these rugged and isolated areas were some of the hardest hit in the 2015 earthquake. Join us on the 11th of May to hear about how Mont and the Reach for Nepal Foundation (RFN) are offering you a chance to get off the beaten track and experience the genuine culture of Nepal while making an actual difference in a remote village.
On the night you will learn how Reach for Nepal is making meaningful change to the lives of rural Nepalese affected by the earthquake, and the unique cultural and trekking experiences offered on this amazing trip. There will also be some tasty treats from the Hungry Buddha Himalayan restaurant!

The night will be presented by Lachhu Thapa and Lou Nulley, co founders and directors of the Reach for Nepal Foundation. Lachhu is based in Canberra running both the Reach for Nepal Foundation and the Hungry Buddha restaurants but is originally from Pokhara in Nepal. Lou is an experienced Himalayan trekker and brings an extensive project management skillset to the operation.

Two local Canberra organisations partner to present the trip of a lifetime. Change peoples lives on this genuine ‘off the beaten track’ adventure: 3 days physical work rebuilding a remote village school, genuine cultural experiences & guided trekking through some of the World’s great ranges.

The Reach for Nepal Foundation was established after the devastating earthquakes of Nepal in April 2015.
RFN is a not-for-profit organisation working to provide practical and financial assistance to rural Nepalese communities affected by the devastating 2015 earthquake.

Mont is proud to be partnering with the Reach for Nepal foundation, their unique cultural connection and knowledge of Nepal allows their aid to help remote and isolated communities often overlooked by other aid programs. Find more information about the projects at www.reachfornepal.org.
