We are proud and happy to contribute to a brighter future for the children in Nepal. Annual report for the SMILES project 2013 (pdf)
See below our photos from Kalimati where LifePort has made, or is making a contribution.
Starting on August 16, 2015, villagers in Kalimati planted 1000 trees that LifePort payed for. The trees will grow up to protect the landscape from erosion in the future. This project was planned long before the 2015 earthquake, and remained a priority to finish among the villagers in spite of the devastation of the earthquake.
Beneath this great tree, we will build benches, tables, chairs and a ping-pong table for the children, teachers and other villagers.
On this hill, 1000 trees will be replanted by the villagers, sponsored by LifePort. The re-planting program aims to reduce the risk of erosion where historically the cutting of trees for households has been too intense.
