Overview

April 25th 2015 was the day that shook whole of Nepal and neighboring countries by an earthquake measuring 7.6 on the richer scale. More than 8500 people died in Nepal and more than 30,000 people were injured all over Nepal

Relief came from all over the world. A month after the earthquake the Management team had a meeting as to how assist in the relief work. After much contemplation we visited Nuwakot a district badly affected by the earthquake. We came to learn that most of the schools in Nuwakot district had been destroyed. Looking on long term basis we decided to build schools in Nuwakot District.
