RUGSAOF Foundation has decided to postpone 2015 award ceremony for until further notice due to the changing needs and priorities that April, 2015 earthquake introduced.
The earthquakes and subsequent tremors have destroyed countless schools and hospitals all over Nepal, which we see as a big impediment towards rehabilitation, rebuilding and also the well being of the citizenry. Therefore, the Foundation’s board has unanimously agreed to donate its funds for 2015’s awards to construct at least one temporary health post and one school in an earthquake affected area. Our projected estimates for the project amounts to approximately 10 Lacks NRS, of which 5 Lacks will be contributed by our Foundation. We hope to raise the remaining amount with support of local and international donors. In the fortunate circumstance that the Foundation raises beyond its project goals, it will direct the surplus to additional projects with a similar end.
Our board members consists of retired professionals, who have more than 2 decades of experiences building houses, roads, bridges etc. as contractors. Therefore, we are fully confident that we will be able to spend each penny with utmost care and impact.
We invite other NGOs, INGO’s, donors, to support us either by working with us as a strategic partner , or by working as a volunteer. Let’s rebuild our infrastructure together.
