Obrigado Portugal Association in partnership with Dwarika’s Foundation will oversee the funding and construction of 50 homes in the Kathmandu Valley for the employees of the Dwarika’s Hotel group. These are simple, humble people who lost everything in the devastating April 25, 2015 earthquakes.
The project provides support and advice to a maximum total of 50 families. In addition to providing oversight to the process, Obrigado Portugal Association’s contribution to this project will include, but not be limited to:
- Earthquake resistant home design by architects Maria da Paz Braga and Francisca Bastos
- Providing an approved engineering certificate for each home
- Assisting with the procurement financing
- Negotiating with local banks to obtain home loans at a competitive and accessible rate.
