“The brick walls are there for a reason. The brick walls are not there to keep us out; the brick walls are there to give us a chance to show how badly we want something.”
Walking through the streets of Kathmandu, construction is everywhere. In some areas, reconstruction from the earthquake is still in full swing. Other areas, new structures and homes are popping up. In Nepalese building fashion, bamboo shoots hold up sections of ceilings and walls. Gopal’s dream is to be in the heart of it all! For years he’s been making bricks by hand and selling to builders. Now, the pride he takes in his handiwork will extend beyond selling the bricks he makes. Let’s make Gopal’s dream of launching his own construction company become real! For that to happen, he needs tools, material for bricks, and bamboo up front. Let's get him those tools and materials! Let's be a part of changing what’s possible for this Nepalese entrepreneur. Let’s start something that changes the lives of Gopal, his family, and his village. Purchase a bundle of bamboo or brick materials to get us started!
