The Buddha Odyssey in partnership with the REACH for Nepal Foundation (RFN) organises various Community Rebuild Trips to Nepal each year. These trips are open to any groups, clubs, school and university in Australia.
The trip has some time in Kathmandu, then follows one of the best trekking trails in the world - The Annapurna Trekking Trail. This then leads to your Community Project where you contribute to rebuild of predefined project you will undertake. There is plenty of time to mingle with school students and local people to pass on some skills, and experience the Nepalese culture, traditions, social structure and ways of life.
The Buddha Odyssey has been leading trips to Nepal of this nature alongside RFN for two years now. Some of the travellers have described the trip as a life changing experience for them.

The Reach for Nepal Foundation was established after the devastating earthquakes in the region in April 2015. With the support of local communities and the people of Canberra, we are now able to provide practical and financial assistance to rural Nepalese communities affected by the earthquake.
We use our strong cultural ties and detailed knowledge of Nepal to identify and support projects that contribute to rebuilding schools and villages.
The funds that you contribute will directly assist us to fund our various projects. Find more information about the projects at www.reachfornepal.org
