Its been one year since the April 2015 earthquake hit Nepal. One year since we started our group. One year since a small group of travellers committed to helping Nepal and came together to found Secret Garden Disaster Relief. Seeing people who had lost everything, fathers and mothers with children sitting on the street with […]

As you know from our updates, the last 2 months SGDR have been focused on our huge relocation project – providing a semi permanent settlement for 41 families who were at risk of a landslide on the north side of the mountain in Hokse. A few months back, Beth, Dipu and Harry went to the Nepali for […]

On Thursday the 30th of June Glen and Julia led their first build team, including three new volunteers, set off for Sisneri – a small village, surrounded by breath taking mountain views, which was in desperate need of a new school for the 75 village children whose school had been destroyed in the earthquake. The road to the village was not for the faint of heart and the team were cheerfully informed of the high death rate of those travelling on the unstable roads in jeeps and buses. Nevertheless, after a bumpy and at times nerve-wracking ride we arrived in Sisneri.
On Monday, Harry and Wal travelled to Hokshe in Kavre to assess the need for shelters. The area is notorious for its illegal organ-trading over recent years, as vulnerable villagers are duped into selling their kidneys to Indian conmen for a fraction of the price they fetch in Mumbai or Delhi.
We’ve been working together with Linda and Shiva from BringThoughtstoAction for a while now, and now we decided to announce our partnership officially.
