Why We Started
Nepal Life Improvement Foundation officially formed in 2019. Prior to this, our founder Maury Mason, had been helping those in the community of Pachabaya, a village 200 kilometers west of Kathmandu, near the city of Pokhara since 2015. The contributions were to help people recover from the earthquake damage and resulting economic hardships of that year. The first projects began with rebuilding and repairing damaged homes and expanded to projects improving village infrastructure including pathways, stairs and connecting homes to water and hydro. In May 2019, along with Robbie Prokop we were officially incorporated as a Canadian Non Profit Organization. In 2020 Lilly Mason came on board, and helped to expand our fundraising base which has enabled us to take on more projects.Get In Touch
Pachabhaiya Community Development Centre
We have been approached by local community leaders with an opportunity to take over a large three story building that was recently left vacant.
We are converting it to a Community Resource Centre that we will use to host a variety of educational and skill development workshops and programs, including a demonstration permaculture garden where locals can learn sustainable agriculture. Other workshop plans include bee keeping, jewellery making, literacy classes, English classes, home repair and tool training, environmental stewardship and more. We have begun facilitating weekly fitness classes and art classes for children. Management and Program coordination is on a volunteer basis, however we will provide income for local labour and workshop instructors.
