The Heritage Renewal Initiative, HRI, is supported by the Bodhivastu Foundation and is being implemented in Nepal by both Bodhivastu and HLF in partnership with organizations including the Boudhanath Gyang Association, (Guthi) and Swayambunath Guthi.
The loss and damage to Nepal's major heritage sites resulting from the recent earthquake are unfathomable and will severely impact this aspect of the nations identity. Meanwhile, Nepal relies heavily on tourism as one of the country's main income sources. Since tourists come to Nepal to appreciate this vast storehouse of cultural heritage, strong efforts must be made to restore and preserve these incredible sites for future generations both for Nepal and for the entire international community as well.
