Dan Maurer and Anthony Mancini first ventured to Nepal in 2011, spending three months volunteering on farms and trekking to Mt. Everest’s base camp. Immediately captivated by the country’s beautiful landscape and people, they left Nepal eager to remain connected, and since the 2015 earthquake the two friends dedicated time and expertise to fundraising and rebuilding efforts, ultimately leading to the birth of Elevate Nepal, Inc. in 2017, recruiting Resham Lama Bal to be their partner and in-country coordinator
Resham Lama Bal
Resham was determined to assist his country after the 2015 earthquake, distributing food, building materials, clothes and blankets to areas affected by the quake. Shortly after founding Elevate Nepal, Dan and Anthony recruited Resham as a partner and in-country coordinator; with his drive to assist Nepal and willingness to never back down from a challenge, he has been a key part of making Elevate Nepal a success.
