THE STORY:

Prabal Gurung wrote -

Over 7,500 people have been killed by a massive 7.9 magnitude earthquake that hit Nepal on April 25, 2015. There is widespread devastation across Nepal. The death toll is expected to "increase significantly" as emergency relief teams slowly reach rural areas. Villages have been the most devastated by the earthquake and many villages have been totally flattened. There were dozens of tremors and aftershocks after the first earthquake, further destabilizing structures and complicating rescue efforts. It is difficult to reach the majority of villages in Nepal even in the best conditions due to the rough terrain and poor infrastructure. Now with damaged roads and bridges and countless landslides, reaching some of the most remote villages without helicopters is next to impossible.

We have already contributed a total of over $20,000 for immediate relief assistance to the Nepal Red Cross Society and the Spinal Injury Rehabilitation Center. However, the vast majority of the funds Shikshya Foundation Nepal raises will go towards the long term rebuilding process in Nepal, which will take months or years. Our focus will be primarily on sustainable rebuilding projects in rural areas.  Responsible grassroots development and rebuilding takes careful planning and execution, so the decisions cannot be made with haste. 

Shikshya Foundation Nepal is committed to distributing 100% of the funds it raises directly to programs that will benefit the people who need assistance the most. We are also committed to full transparency and accountability of funds raised and distributed, which we will post publicly on our website and on social media. All of Shikshya Foundation Nepal’s board members, executives and staff volunteer their time and use personal resources for any costs incurred, which means that there are no overhead costs.


Your donations will go to Shikshya Foundation Nepal (www.shikshyafoundationnepal.org). Please donate generously and spread the word. We will continue to provide updates and information regarding the allocation of funds on our website, and on our Facebook and Twitter pages. Thank you all for your support.
