Commitment to Action

Fast Track Reconstruction of Safe Nepalese Communities

Commitment by

The American Institute Of Architects

In 2015, The American Institute of Architects Foundation, All Hands Volunteers, and their partners, ARCASIA, SONA, and the Department of Small Works, committed to providing permanent, earthquake-resilient housing to displaced families in Nepal in response to the April 25th the earthquake and subsequent aftershocks. The American Institute of Architects Foundation, All Hands Volunteers, and their partners will focus on the Sindhupalchok District of Nepal, one of the hardest-hit areas in the country, through a phased process that incorporates significant beneficiary input and participation. First, AIA and All Hands will select a pilot community and design and construct culturally appropriate earthquake-resilient housing with the community. Following the pilot, The American Institute of Architects Foundation and All Hands Volunteers will scale this community-driven approach, ultimately impacting 10 to 12 villages and approximately building a total of 540 homes by 2017.
