100% for Nepal
KarmaFlights is a Nepal-based, non-profit organization. We believe strongly in each child’s immutable right, to a safe and secure learning environment. In a land famous for its towering peaks and tumultuous rivers, the bright young minds of Nepal are its greatest natural resource. Education, is the key to unlocking that vast potential and solving Nepal’s poverty problem.
We wouldn’t be where we are today without the help and support of so many. Working in the non-profit sector is not about being a hero. It’s about being there for your community; providing that long-term support cultivating trusted relationships. That is at the heart of KarmaFlights. We work together with local communities and international partners, to build better solutions and more sustainable futures for the children of Nepal.
Sponsor a Child
Kinship Scholarship Program
Hundreds of children lost one or both parents, in the April and May 2015 Nepal earthquakes. These children are known as “earthquake orphans”. The pain of loss of family is often compounded, by the need to leave school and begin a life of hard labor, to support their own survival. KarmaFlights has developed a unique program to break this cycle, and protect these most vulnerable children.
New School Education
The April 2015 earthquake destroyed 90% of the schools, in the epicentre region of Gorkha district. That amounts to over 500 schools, that urgently need to be rebuilt. KarmaFlights immediate missive, is to help communities back on their feet, by building 20 permanent earthquake-resistant schools. We also wish to provide new and exciting tools, to engage the children in the educational process.
Within 48 hours of the 7.8 richter scale quake, which took the lives of some 9,000 individuals and destroyed over half-a-million homes and schools, our team was on the move to the epicenter. We quickly established a medical triage, care center and urgent-supply distribution hub, serving the immediate needs of these shocked and destroyed communities. KarmaFlights were the first responders to the epicenter area, and remained the only group active on the ground for weeks following the quake.
