NEPAL – ONE YEAR ON
When a community receives access to education, it can change just about everything. It can give kids and entire families a better future, improve health and grow local economies.
As Nepal rebuilds after the devastating earthquakes in 2015, education is proving critical to the country’s recovery. The AHF is working hard to get kids back to school, giving them respite from the devastation they have faced and allowing their parents time to rebuild their lives.
We are doing this by providing long-term assistance to over 350 schools in remote mountain communities in Nepal through teacher training, school scholarships and educational resources. We are also rebuilding dozens of schools in the Everest region that were damaged or destroyed by the earthquakes and providing temporary learning spaces for kids while these schools are being built.
This month marks the one-year anniversary of the earthquakes. In this time we have distributed critical supplies, delivered post-trauma counselling for teachers and students, delivered training for teachers in emergency response, built temporary learning centres, rebuilt classrooms and designed earthquake resilient schools for the future.
For just $200 a year you can educate a child in Nepal by supporting the AHF School Scholarship Program or support our Rebuild Program. For $15,000 we can build a classroom and get children safely back in school. Donate now to our 'Nepal - One Year On' appeal and change lives all year long.
