Helping to Rebuild Lives…

Nepal Cyclist Ride to Rescue (NCRR) is a Nepali based NGO that was founded following the devastating earthquakes on the 25th April 2015 (7.8) and 12th May 2015 (7.3).

After living through the destruction and having close ties to many remote villages of Nepal, a group of mountain bikers got together to deliver immediate aid to those most in need.

NCRR focused on collecting donations and providing food, tarpaulin, medical camps and more when this horrific natural disaster occurred. The realisation following this was that along with immediate aid – a long term sustainable development was needed. This led into the 7 schools in 7 weeks project; where NCRR fundraised for the rebuilding of 7 schools within the Shikra Besi region of Kathmandu (on the boundaries of Langtang and Nuwakot) and managed to build 7 schools in 7 weeks with the help of its supporters.

Although these earthquakes happened a few years ago now; there is still much destruction and despair left in Nepal.

The need for immediate aid in these areas has been reduced and NCRR are now focusing on helping to maintain sustainability within these villages, whilst also helping out local Nepali mountain bikers.
