The assessment was focused in Sindhupalchowk, Nepal. This region was affected more by the second earthquake, or strong aftershock, that occured on May 12th, 2015. It registered a 7.3 magnitude.
We were focused on sustainable, disaster resistant structures in remote areas that had been overlooked by larger INGO’s due to the lostical struggle of working there.
We completed this assessment in November, 2015 and immediately began raising funds and designing the structure after deciding on a small school to provide shelter for the students of Topka, who were forced to study outside once their school was demolished during the earthquake.
We were set to break ground the first week of January.
We were able to make this happen with the assist of local organizations streamlining the paperwork process. Amazing commitment from our small team of core volunteers and the support and aid of the community.
Our goal was to complete the build in 3 months. The school opened on April 1st, 2016, on schedule.
100% of all donations went directly to the school. All work was carried out by 70+ volunteers that came to work with us.
