Rebuild Nepal Education Foundation was founded to assist Nepalese students through rebuilding the country’s educational system that was totally devastated by the earthquake of 2015.
The earthquake was so intense that Mt. Everest receded 8 inches and the entire capital city region of Kathmandu raised 10 feet in 30 seconds in a matter of less than three minutes.
The rural mountainous village regions are receiving little aid, although many homes, farms, businesses and schools were destroyed. Nepal is extremely poor and there is not much aid reaching these distant villages.
Currently, most of the worldwide attention to need is concentrated in Africa, The Caribbean, and South America. Rebuild Nepal Education Foundation, a 501 c (3), is dedicated to helping these people grapple with the devastation and try to rebuild.
Rebuild Nepal Education Foundation works in remote villages in the mountainous region of Nepal.
The villages where we work were selected based on the severity of the earthquake damage and the nature of the economic status of the people. Rebuild Nepal Education Foundation concentrates on the province of Nuwakot, particularly Jyuan Joti and Social Heart Schools in the small town of Satebatto.
Many of the people we work with in the local villages are Hindu and vegetarian. While English is taught in schools, some of the older adults only speak a few words of English. We always take a guide or an interpreter with us to facilitate good communication. All children are taught English in school. We have found that by second or third grade students have no problem understanding lessons our volunteers teach in English. Click below to find who helps us rebuild.
