abari designs and builds houses out of bamboo and rammed earth. It trains local people in how to build their own houses with bamboo.
abari had built one school building before the earthquake hit in 2015. The earthquake highlighted the unique feature of bamboo; it is earthquake resistant. The school located at the epicentre of the earthquake survived the tremors. Since then, abari has played a significant role in rebuilding Nepal.
As bamboo is a highly sustainable resource, abari is helping to preserve the environment with soil conservation. At the same time it preserves the ancient tradition in Nepal of building with bamboo.
