Nepal Earthquake Relief

After the 25th April Earthquake in Nepal, 360+ members came together to get involved in relief efforts. Independently 360+ member Srijana Angdembey was working with her organisation Sahayeta.org to raise funds and deploy it through their networks in Nepal. 360+ agreed to partner with Sahayeta and has raised $9,500 to date as part of an integrated fund. 

At the same time Sahayeta needed assistance to do an on-ground needs assessment which was being conducted by one if their personnel. Therefore on 10th May, Mohit Raj from 360+ joined Nisha Thapa from Sahayeta.org in Kathmandu, Nepal for 3 weeks of need assessment, immediate relief work, and partnership building with local NGOs.

Some of the highlights of work where 360+ assisted Sahayeta.org in Nepal include
