The Soarway Foundation was created in April of 2015 with the intent to focus on disaster risk reduction and preparedness in Nepal. Right after their commencement Gorkha, Barpark Earthquake hit Nepal causing major havoc and mayhem that followed the rebuilding of Nepal through Soarway Foundation. Sorway immediately worked on relief works on earthquake aftermaths on its beginning days. From providing direct assistance to groups working with elderly victims to securing donations on tarps, tents and foodstuffs. Soarway even collaborated with actors and musicians seeking assistance for Nepal indulging in more focused fund raising efforts.

Founded by Michael Kobold, he always had been fond of Nepal’s beauty and people’s spirit. Now, led by Ambassador (Ret.) Scott Delisi and Devin Orsi, has been passionately working towards Nepal’s development. Scott came to Nepal first in 1982 serving as a diplomat, and again in late 80s as the State Department’s desk officer and finally on 2010 as American Ambassador to Nepal. His love and passion for Nepal has always been shown on his works and Nepal and it’s communities has been motivating him in every possible way.

Devin Orsi is executive vice president of Soarway. He has his focus on uplifting Nepal by driving organic revenue, enhancing the exposure of new businesses needing assistance in unknown territory, tapping the expertise of employees to enhance CRM initiatives, providing various connections across all fields, creating innovative teams that transform ideas into highly profitable gains, inspiring employees to attract more business while creating internal controls and systems that sustain increased profitability.

As per their mission statement, Soarway believes that working in partnership with the people of Nepal they can help create a more resilient nation, a stronger and safer nation and in the process preserve a culture that is a treasure for the world.
