The Greenhouse Project : Help us regrow Nepal

You can donate here : http://igg.me/at/nep/x/6800712

 

We are Elpis and Dora, a crazy and passionate couple from Greece that loves to travel, explore, engage in new cultures and most importantly we try to leave a positive impact everywhere we go. After two successful projects, Afriquest and Wheeling2Help we feel that there is so much more to see in this world and so much more to do to make it a better place that we are now emerging on another trip, this time through Asia. Our first project in our AsiaQuest will be #TheGreenhouseProject in Nepal.

Why Nepal? Nepal was hit by an earthquake in April 2015 killing 9,000 people, destroying houses and throwing life into disorder. Rural communities were hit the hardest. The first winter is around the corner. A local organisation, Conscious Impact is already helping the local community in Takure by rebuilding permanent homes and schools by using sustainable methods. Our goal is to build a greenhouse in which plants such as avocados and coffee trees will be grown and distributed to the villagers. Through this new method of agricultural farming we will assist the community grow a sustainable business and generate money to rebuild their homes. The construction of the greenhouse will be made with sturdy materials and will serve the community at least for the next 15-20 years.

What We Need & What You Get

We will need €5,000 to complete the construction of the greenhouse and plant the initial avocado and coffee trees. We need to raise this amount to cover the expenses of the construction materials, tools and starting saplings.  All labor will be provided by the community and Conscious Impact volunteers. Of course, the more we collect the more plants we will be able to grow and the bigger the impact on we will make on the community.

For any amount donated we will reward each one of you with a “Thank You” picture from the kids in the community and a very own plant with your name! With this cost-free perk, we will manage to give 100% of the money collected to the building of the greenhouse.

The Impact 

A small act today, will impact the life of a community for many years to come! Sustainable, long-term progress in Takure requires more just rebuilding homes. The greenhouse will be the stepping stone for future agricultural development in Takure which will help them generate money on a regular basis.

About us

After having successfully completed other projects in the past, we know that there is no bigger joy than helping others, especially when what we offer can improve the lives of a whole community not only in the present moment but also for the years to come. During our Afriquest we managed to raise about $20,000 via 3 crowdfunding campaigns and helped orphanages, dispensaries, we built a school, even a water well that gave access to safe drinking water to more than 1,200 people. That was only the beginning as it inspired us for our next project, Wheeling2Help where we crossed Europe from London to Athens by bicycle raising €15,000 for Floga Association for children with cancer. It was heart warming to see these children smile!

After having explored Africa and Europe we thought why stop here when there is so much more we can do? We now have a great team of volunteers helping us in our projects and making it easier to set higher goals and achieve so much more as a team!

Other Ways You Can Help

Any amount you decide to donate will make a huge difference for the community in Nepal. However, money is not everything. If you like idea of The Greenhouse Project spread the word to the people around you; maybe they will get as excited and inspired like you and us!  There is no bigger fulfillment that helping the people around us! Using the Indiegogo share tools is an easy way to spread the word!

This is all for now! Let’s all work hard and be the change we wish to see in this world! And don’t forget beautiful people, Dream.Travel.Live!

The Wheeling2help team :)
