Nepal Communitere is a Nepali run and based non-profit organization that brings together Nepali and international groups to operate as one community. Nepal Communitere provides a dynamic, collaborative space for relief and sustainable renewal, giving individuals and organizations the means to pioneer innovative solutions and become self-reliant. The Nepal Communitere Resource Center and Innovation Hub will enable international, national and local non-governmental organizations and communities to work together to transition from initial emergency relief to longer-term development.
Nepal Communitere was founded in response to the 7.8 magnitude earthquake which struck Nepal on April 25th, 2015. The worst earthquake to hit Nepal in over 80 years, the disaster killed more than 9000 people and left 2.8 million people in need of humanitarian assistance. These devastating effects were further compounded by subsequent earthquakes, leaving affected communities in a state of trauma and insecurity.
Nepal Communitere is the Nepali branch of Communitere International, an innovative non-profit, pioneering an effective international model for sustainable disaster recovery. Our approach involves an active, experienced, on-the-ground presence with a focus on providing the resources, processes, and tools required to empower local communities to take an active role in the renewal of their own community. In addition, we are committed to bridging the gap between individuals who are willing to help and organizations that can effect change. Central to that commitment is the notion that communication, information, and strategic partnerships are vital to effective emergency response, recovery, and renewal of affected communities.
