The Kathmandu Mini Maker Faire hosted last month at Nepal Communitere was, by every measure, a massive success. With over 1500 participants and 30 makers working together over the two-day event, it was proved, once again, that a true difference can be made when we work in collaboration with the community to provide what they need and want. You can find out all the details of the event here. We promise, you will love the ingenuity, enthusiasm and happy faces at this event!
But the Kathmandu Mini Maker Faire was just the beginning for Nepal Communitere and the inspired – and inspiring! – community it serves in Kathmandu. Bringing the ethos of making to Nepalis as the path to rebuilding their country and their lives, encouraging their sense of community, and empowering them to bring meaningful change is at the heart of what Communitere does.
Nepal Communitere is a unique resource in Nepal, a place where experimentation and innovation thrive. Now, to continue to provide these much needed resources,we are embarking on the final build-out of our space and launching a crowdfunding campaign to help us get there!
Funds raised in this campaign will be used to complete our Makerspace, Training Hall and co-working spaces. We’re also going to expand and complete our super cool Cargo Café & Bar, a revenue generating endeavor that will put Nepal Communitere on a self-sustaining path. When you donate, you can see exactly how your money will be spent … and you can even designate which project you’d like to support!
The Nepal Communitere Resource Center and the services it provides is only made possible through the generous donations of supporters around the world. Please consider becoming a part of – or continuing to be a part of! – our work by making a contribution.
