4 Ways to Help Nepal

1) Points of Light’s disaster services team is engaged with U.S.-based partners to support their volunteer recruitment activities through All for Good. You can register your interest to volunteer by visiting www.allforgood.org/disasters and creating a volunteer account or selecting a specific disaster project and registering through the host site. It’s important to remember that individuals should never self-deploy, as the situation is still critical and travel is extremely difficult throughout much of the affected area.

2) generationOn, the youth activation division of Points of Light, offers resources to help parents talk to their kids about disasters. They have also partnered with Save the Children to offer project ideas your kids can use to help kids in Nepal. Learn more here.

3) Three current and former Civic Accelerator ventures – WomenLEAD Nepal, Accountability Lab and tinyGive – are on the front lines, helping with the Nepal earthquake relief efforts. Learn about what they're doing to help rebuild communities and how you can support their efforts.

4) Donate to help Points of Light and HandsOn Network affiliates support the mobilization of volunteers in ongoing response and recovery efforts.
