iTourNepal P Ltd is working with local youth group 'Ganga Jamuna Youth Club' to mobilize volunteers and fundraiser to build permanent, earthquake resistant building. We have limited fund but with mobilizing volunteers, we can do maximum work.

We also need volunteers to engage with kids at primary schools. Volunteer teachers without skills are trained in Kathmandu for few days.
We also need volunteers to help with farming. Local farmers can't change from traditional farming as it is subsistant. We also needs agricultural experts for suggestion on alternate. There are abandoned fields which could be used for cash crops farming.
