Community Action

Contribute to creating positive change in a local community, where small actions can have a great impact

Since 2002 Aussie Action Abroad has offered Architecture Students and all related construction & others who wish to share skills and assist at a local level an opportunity to travel to Nepal, contribute to the rural Nepali communities through community development projects as well as experience world heritage Nepali architecture.

This year we will offer two projects where we will continue building a community space, whilst the other, improving the learning environment of students in a remote school. The Teams will work in the same geographic area of Nepal whilst enabling communities to receive much needed additions.

Aussie Action Abroad Ltd (AAA) uses basic accommodation at all times. Depending on location and practicality, this may include camping (tents supplied), dormitories, local hostel accommodation and basic hotels.

Prior to departure, AAA provides participants with all the information they need regarding gear, innoculations, culture & climate, etc. Detailed material will be sent on enquiry which includes an outlined program of planned activity.

Project funds: 10% of each participant fee is allocated to the purchase of materials for projects, but you may choose to seek additional funds from your community to add to the finances available. All funds raised will be given to the organisations when the group is in Nepal.

Sustainable Development Goals

Our Community Action Teams are committed to achieving the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) with our partners and on our projects.

“I loved experiencing a culture that is strong-willed and determined, yet so easy-going and genuinely happy. The adversities faced by the local Nepali people is what keeps them going day in day out, and the generosity of Westerners is a gift well and truly deserved.”
