When we touch people’s lives through our humanitarian work in India and Nepal, we are not only improving conditions for the short term -- we are also planting seeds of altruism that continue to grow...
Providing access to education is one of the primary activities of Karuna-Shechen. After the 2015 earthquakes destroyed many of the schools in remote regions in Nepal, our goal was to help rebuild and give local children the opportunity to learn.
Thanks to your support and the dedication of our team, we have been able to completely rebuild ten schools in remote earthquake-affected areas!
Shantipur Elementary, located in a village in the Kavre district, is one of these schools. The local students now can study in a protected environment with access to clean drinking water and improved sanitation, all provided by Karuna-Shechen.
See the impact of our work as two students from Shantipur Elementary talk about their lives and hopes for the future:
We are continuing our education program in other remote schools to provide materials, community support, and additional teachers to under-served schools.
Below is a list of names of the schools demolished by the earthquakes that we rebuilt:
Deuralil School, Makwan District
Phalatedevi School, Sindhupalchok District
