Sustainable Steps Nepal is focused on rebuilding rural areas in Nepal that have been devastated by the 2015 earthquake. Our initiatives promote sustainable income generation, empowering individuals to increase financial independence and decrease reliance on continual donations and tourism.
We decided to help Gatlang by building greenhouses to increase food security and provide an alternative income source.
Langtang Valley Health, which sadly was destroyed in the earthquake, selected SSN as the organisation to carry on their work.
We recognize that the children are the future of Nepal. Let’s make the future of Nepal bright by supporting them now!
The women of Langtang will be collaborating on an entrepreneurial venture to knit products that will be sold around the world.
In the aftermath of the April earthquake, many men, women, and children still live under temporary shelters with little or no weather appropriate attire.
During a community meeting, Langtang survivors expressed their need to have a stable shelter for the monsoon season.
Power shortages were a common problem in Nepal; people went without electricity for many hours in a day.
Sustainable Steps Nepal recognized the lack of support for the rural areas, and took action to aid the rural villages in Langtang Valley.

Construction of this health post is progressing on schedule thanks to all the hard work put in by Tshering Pema from KGLS and our partnership with Chirring Foundation who covered the building costs. ...

It was inspired by the tragedy and destruction that befell Nepal in April last year when it was struck by a huge earthquake, killing and injuring thousands and leaving millions homeless. The hope is the song will raise awareness for ...
