Serve the Nation

Immediately after the 7.8 magnitude earthquake struck Nepal in 2015, the 4-H national team and its volunteers in coordination with the Nepal Army, Nepal Police and Armed Police Force (APF) rescued children and elderly citizens in Kathmandu and Bhaktapur within 24 hours. The 4-H Nepal carried out a one-day rescue in Binayak Hospital, Balaju. 4-H President Lok Raj Awasthi, Treasurer Asmita Khadka, and Secretary Arjun Dahal led the rescue campaign at the central level with 20 youth volunteers. The 4-H Nepal focused on the most affected areas like Balaju, Hanuman Dhoka Darbar Square and Bhaktapur in the Kathmandu Valley, Dolkha, Kavre and Rasuwa districts. The 4-H Nepal distributed relief materials, food items, and drinking water to the earthquake survivors in different temporary shelters in these districts.

Construction of school and buildings

The 4-H Nepal mobilized 5 hundred 67 volunteers to edifice the temporary shelters, schools and heritage sites. The volunteers contributed their valuable time by focusing on schools, private houses, toilets and communities for 56 days. Eighty volunteers built 8 classrooms at the Durbar High School in Kathmandu. Likewise, they constructed 14 damaged houses in Sitapaila, Kathmandu and handed over the houses to the owners. The 4-H volunteers, along with the APF, cleared debris at Changunarayan Temple for four days.

Sanitation Camp and Hygiene Program

The 4-H volunteers participated in the hygiene and sanitation program for different camps to protect the earthquake survivors from post-quake diseases. They worked in different camps based in Tudhikhel, Singh Durbar, Balaju, Narayanhiti and Bagmati Riverside by helping disabled, poor and vulnerable quake survivors.

Bridging government and stakeholders

The 4-H Nepal played a vital role in coordinating with the government agencies, security agencies, private sector, NGOs, INGOs, donor agencies to provide relief and support to the earthquake survivors.
