Thumka Housing Project Completion Video Report│Clinic Nepal, Inc.

Following the devastating earthquakes of 2015, Clinic Nepal led this project to rebuild the village of Thumka, Gorkha District. The construction of 31 houses and 1 community building was completed in 18 months. In May, 2 years after the earthquakes, Clinic Nepal hosted the ceremony to celebrate the completion of this project, and bring together the different groups that have worked hard to make this happen. The result has provided a much higher standard of living for the 280 people of Thumka Village. We are pleased to report that Clinic Nepal’s initial goal, to help mitigate the devastating consequences of the 2015 earthquakes, has been met and exceeded. The pride of the villagers and the desire to improve their lives is a direct result of the time and money invested in them. This is a reflection on how this project started and what it has meant for the Chepang people of Thumka. Thumka Awas Nirman Aayojana, Bhumlichowk-8, Thumka.

Special thanks to the many volunteers, supporters and donors who gave to this successful project. We couldn’t have done it without you!

Dhanyabhad!!

Meghauli Marketplace│Project Completion Report 2017

Report from Clinic Nepal, Inc.│November 9th, 2017  

We are very proud to announce the completion of the Meghauli Marketplace project on November 9th, 2017. We would like to express our sincere Thank You to the Diehl Family Social Enterprise for providing the grant in 2015 that ultimately enabled Clinic Nepal to launch this much needed Marketplace project in Meghauli, Nepal. Clinic Nepal then immediately started developing a village marketplace to bring together a capable community of local farmers and entrepreneurs and give them the visibility they need among the large village development committee. Two years later, Clinic Nepal proudly announced the completion of the Project on Nov. 9th, 2017. The Multipurpose Building will provide a place for people to share new and innovative technologies, products, and ideas, creating long term economic benefits for the community.

Special Thank You to everyone who contributed and supported this project! Dhanyabhad!

About Meghauli MarketPlace Project│2015-2017:

Upon completion of the Global Peace Exchange Nepal Development Project 2014, GPE at Birmingham-Southern College and Florida State University teamed up together and aided Clinic Nepal to write a grant to enter the Diehl Family Social Enterprise Competition. Few months later Clinic Nepal became a Deihl Family Social Enterprise Competition finalist and received a fifty-thousand dollar grant to build “Meghauli Marketplace: aka. Multipurpose Building”. Clinic Nepal immediately started developing a village marketplace to bring together a capable community of local farmers and entrepreneurs and give them the visibility they need among the large village development committee. The Multipurpose Building will provide a place for people to share new and innovative technologies, products, and ideas, creating long term economic benefits for the community. On Nov. 9th, 2017, Clinic Nepal proudly announced the completion of the Marketplace.

The Corey Project with GPE│VOLUNTEER HOUSE│CHDCambodia.org

On Sunday, July 24th Corey Goode, a former Global Peace Exchange director and friend, passed away in a tragic motorbike accident in Phnom Penh, Cambodia, where he was about to begin teaching at an international school. Corey was a free-spirit and natural leader. He has left a permanent imprint on his family members, friends, and students and he will always be remembered for his drive to make the world a better place.

All donations will be given to the Goode family. In 2015, Corey volunteered at a school in rural Cambodia called Children with Hope for Development. The Goode family will be traveling to Cambodia in the future and will be donating the money to the school.  All the funds will go towards a volunteer guesthouse in Corey’s honor.  Any kind of support helps and is appreciated.

Help spread the word!

The Corey Project is an international non-profit partnership formed in honor of Corey Goode. Corey found his passion for advocacy and education while working with children in Nepal, and then teaching in Cambodia at Children with Hope for Development (CHD). The Corey Project aims to inspire hope for children in developing countries.

Children with Hope for Development (CHD) is a grassroots Cambodian Non Governmental Organisation. It is based in Po Village, Takeo Province, Cambodia and is located approximately 94 kilometres from the capital city Phnom Penh. The village is in a poorly serviced remote, rural area with unmade roads. The children in the Po village come from poor rice cropping families and have limited prospects to assist them, break out of the cycle of poverty.

CHD plans to build a volunteer house on the school grounds in the future. Currently, volunteers have to travel 10 kilometers by bicycle from Takeo Town everyday to teach at CHD. The bike ride can be tiring, especially in hot months, and living so far from the school can make many volunteers feel detached from the community. A volunteer house would allow volunteers to be more involved in the community. Living in Po Village, volunteers could learn more about village culture, join in community events and ceremonies, make better relationships with members of the village, and conduct better research. A volunteer house would also help make CHD more sustainable, as it would be generating it’s own income, instead of relying on outside donations to pay for materials and teachers. Perhaps most importantly, a volunteer house would allow CHD to extend its mission of free education to other villages outside of Po, since volunteers would have less distance to travel to other villages and CHD’s increased income would allow it to pay for more teachers.

Please join us in making a difference. No amount is too small or big. A gift from the heart will go a long way in Cambodia. Thank you in advance!
