More Sustainable Building Projects.
Investing for the long term: our Campus Future
With a record of success on increasingly complex green-building projects, Ama Foundation has plans for even more ambitious sustainable building measures to save energy and money, protect the planet and drive innovation.
Ama Foundation aims to set the standard for environmental leadership among Nepal’s children’s homes, demonstrating that energy savings opportunities exist for schools, orphanages and not-for-profit institutions at every level of investment.
To support that vision Ama Foundation has nurtured a culture of sustainability that inspires students and staff alike to contribute to “green” goals in energy efficiency, renewable generation, and natural resource conservation.
From encouraging student-led projects that reduce the children’s home carbon footprint to a pledge to consider environmental impact throughout its operations, Ama Foundation has given sustainability a place of prominence in the curriculum.
Planned Sustainable Building upgrades:
Seeking donations to make our green building and environmental conservation plans become reality for the children.
- Lighting: Optimized lighting fixtures, Upgrade to higher-efficiency bulbs, and de-lamp where possible.
- Ceiling fans and operable windows
