The aim of the project “Gorkha: Rebuilding the Future” is to show people’s life in the small villages in the Gorkha district of Nepal, epicenter of the April 25, 2015 earthquake.
It has been developed in cooperation with Gorkha Foundation, a trusted NGO that operates since 2008 in the Gorkha district.
Although being the cradle of modern Nepal and homeland of the renowned and fearless Gurkha soldiers, the Gorkha district is far from the capital Kathmandu and the most beaten routes.
Reaching this region means several hours on a bus, following perilous unpaved roads winding among the mountains. People from Gorkha are far from politics, and politics is far from Gorkha.
While other regions of the country have been swiftly supported in the aftermath of the earthquake, people from Gorkha are almost forgotten.
The lack of emergency relief combines with the general distress of a corner of the Earth where access to electricity and drinkable water is volatile, hygiene standards are sometimes questionable, and mother nature often turns harsh.
I have been visiting several different villages and always sleeping and living with locals in their own houses, accompanied by a member of the Gorkha Foundation.
During my stay I’ve been also taking footage, to support our fundraising campaign to build a brand new school in Gorkha, which you can watch below.
