SPIRE Group announces Good Earth Nepal and Dr. Owen Geiger as Charity Partner to help rebuild the country of Nepal and build a sustainable future through Earthbag technology.


New York City, NY — SPIRE is pleased to announce its official charity partnership with Good Earth Nepal.


On April 25, 2015, a magnitude 7.8 earthquake struck Nepal, causing widespread devastation, flattening entire villages and leaving hundreds of thousands across the country homeless.


Good Earth Nepal provides critical aid to the Nepalese people, through the construction of new homes and schools using sustainable, affordable and earthquake-resistant Earthbag technology developed by world renowned Dr. Owen Geiger.


Through the partnership, SPIRE seeks to contribute to the advancement of the revolutionary Earthbag technology to rebuild Nepal schools and homes, and empowering Good Earth Nepal to achieve greater impact and innovation.


“Good Earth Nepal is a wonderful organization helping the Nepali people rebuild and recover from a truly devastating event,” said SPIRE co-Founder Bianka Yankov. “We have been a proud supporter of their efforts and recognized that we could make an even greater impact by working together. This is why we are pleased to announce our partnership with Good Earth Nepal, enabling us to provide support to a global community in need and advancing the technology to rebuild sustainably.”


Kateryna Zemskova, co-founder of Good Earth Nepal stated, “We sincerely appreciate SPIRE’s support of our organization. This partnership helps us make a difference in the lives of those in the most devastated regions of Nepal.”
