After the devastating earthquake of 2015 in Nepal, DEFT reached out to a close friend whose ancestral village of Dhungkharka was heavily affected and effectively crippled.

DEFT immediately launched several crowdfunding campaigns and after raising over USD$15,000, began the design and construction of a rammed-earth community centre to support the local village population. The site was a 30m by 6m plot of land on the side of a sloping hill.
