Ann Arbor-based tour operator Journeys International and its nonprofit arm, the Earth Preservation Fund (EPF), have expanded efforts to aid Nepal earthquake victims due to a $50,000 grant by The Peat Fund of The Philadelphia Foundation.
This grant, along with additional funds donated by Journeys clients and supporters, enables the EPF to provide critical and urgent support where it is most needed.
Journeys got its start in Nepal in 1978, and continues to operate a Journeys Nepal office. The staff of Journeys Nepal is directing on-the-ground recovery efforts in communities where Journeys groups have visited in previous years.
