  • January 2015 – we constructed a clean drinking water tank, ensuring that the villagers don’t have to go on a dangerous journey to collect their water.
  • April 2015 – On 25th April 2015 an earthquake of magnitude 7.8 hit the Gorkha region in Nepal. The effects of this earthquake lasting only a few moments, were devastating for a country we know and love so well. More than 9000 people died. On 12th May there was an aftershock of 7.3 which can only be described as an aftershock when in comparison to the first mammoth quake. We sponsored the rebuilding of Shree Krishna Primary School, a project that cost £8,000
Building-a-School
  • June 2015 – Abseil for Nepal, Charity Fundraiser with Climber Jonny Dawes – We raised over £3000 towards rebuilding the Shree Krishna Primary School in Nepal. The one-day event saw us abseiling the height of Kathmandu (1500m) at Stanage Edge in the Peak District. The event was also supported by prolific climber, Jonny Dawes whom taught our supporters the fine art of climbing “no handed.”
Nepali-School
  • January 2016 – We reached our goal and raised the £8000 needed and started building. Thank you so much to all of you that have helped raised the money. Read our blog post about rebuilding the school.
  • April 2016 – The school is completely finished and children are inside learning. Thank you to all that helped build these children a safe place to learn. The project employed local tradesman, engineers and workers. For the most part we used materials sourced from the local area. The school is built to be structurally resistant to further earthquakes/tremors.
Charity-Work
April 2018 – The Share the Load Foundation supplied some sports equipment to the Shree Krishna Primary School and 6 other schools in the area. We thought that this would bring people together, keep them active and encourage them to come to school, as school is an “optional” activity in Nepal. It seemed to put some smiles on their faces and they started to play with it straight away. A little bit of money can go a long way in providing happiness.
School-Children
    NCRR (Nepal Cyclists Ride to Rescue) board member and previous Cross Country Mountain Bike Champion of Nepal, Roan Tamang also kindly donated 2 days of his time to help Lost Earth Adventures’ Director Richard Goodey, organise the purchase and delivery of 10 office chairs, 2 office desks, 1 large cupboard, 500 excercise books, 500 pens, 500 pencils, text books on maths, English, Nepali and hygiene.

They also bought and delivered 55 educational hanging wall displays for teaching geography, 7 world maps, 7 Nepal maps, 2 world globes, 120 whiteboard markers, 12 board erasers, 12 staplers, 12 rolls cello-tape, a volley ball net, 2 volley balls, 3 footballs, 12 shuttle cocks, 6 badminton rackets, 4 ball pumps, 7 calculators, 100 rulers and 20 skipping ropes. We also employed 3 men and a truck from the local area, 1 rickshaw in Kathmandu and some porters from Sikhar Besi.
 

Charity-Work-Feeding-Homeless
    June 2020 – The effects of Covid-19 hit developing countries harder than ever. Those that are poorest are the hardest hit. The rickshaw drivers, day workers and street kids who were already the poorest in one of the poorest places on earth have seen their income completely dry up.

    The Share the Load Foundation sent £500 to Tato Khana Sewa, a grass roots initiative in Kathmandu providing hot meals for anyone who needs them.
