The Help Nepal Appeal (THNA)- Empowerment Transparency Storytelling | Non-for-profit Charity


Nepal is a beautiful landlocked country where seven of the highest mountain peaks can be found. Nepal is not only beautiful for its incredible scenery, but because for its people. The Nepali people are generous, kind and resilient. On the 25th of April 2015 the Nepali people’s resilience was truly challenged; a devastating earthquake ripped through Nepal. Families lost loved ones, communities lost houses and schools, and some people lost everything but hope. I stayed up until 1:00am in the morning, researching what can I do and then the very next day I had two meetings with university staff; within five days we ended up raising over $500, a week later we raised another $1000 and I am extremely happy to say that within seven months we raised over $11000. We were able to help thousands of Nepali people throughout Nepal during this earthquake relief time. So I started to think, my goal is to have The Help Nepal Appeal to become about empowerment and sustainability I didn’t want to just give resources anymore but to do so amongst an empowering and sustainable program where we can help communities to become independent and not dependent on our help so one day we can one day leave and these communities will keep flourishing. The Help Nepal Appeal is a social platform, that brings people internationally as well as nationally together, to work as a team and to help in locations that really need help. The ones in rural locations. We rely completely on social media; the team and I, our goals for social media is to increase our Facebook likes to increase the followers on Instagram and to bring more people to our website, because we want to show the power of storytelling, the power of simply connecting and to tell a story and to be transparent. We have also started a Special-Needs Program in a rural village called Shishaghat. We want to empower the teacher and empower the community to bring them together with our initiative called The Student Leadership Council, to change the culture to help Special Needs children in this village and to eventually be able to spread and help Special Needs students around Nepal. Our goal is to be transparent, is to be storytellers and to share our story and to help in places that really need help. That is what THNA aims to do.
