Dear Ercan,
KGNepal values the feeling of shared humanity that is behind your support. We do our part by ensuring that your donation is put to use where there is a real need.
In line with our mission of enabling people to ‘be the change’, KGNepal has supported volunteers in providing 10,000+ health-relief packages in 40+ locations.
Our focal program ‘Resuming Schools, Resuming Lives’ aims to enable people to resume their regular lives. In this project we focus on helping re-open 25 government schools that we have been working with for the last 4-9 years.
The families who send their children to these schools are from the poorest strata of Nepali society and live in cheap, structurally weak homes. These families also stand to lose the most by the loss of daily wages when they have to stay back to look after their children. As a child starts to resume school, her parents can resume work, and life in the community starts to pick up. We are in talks with the District Education Supervisor, and the principals of all 25 schools, to meet our objective. To facilitate the re-opening of schools, we have sent a team of engineers and architects to assess the structural damage of the school buildings.
Until schools resume, we have started running an Education camp for children from the community. It runs every week-day until June 15th, 2015. It gives children a chance to play in a safe space and continue with parts of their education. It also frees up their parents to resume their daily-wage jobs, thereby assisting each family to move towards a ‘normal life’.
Please go here for pictures from the Education camp:

KGNepal’s perspective on ‘Resuming Lives’ was recently featured in the Huffington Post:

We will continue to work on the ground. Your donation will go a long way in enabling us to run the Education camp and provide relief material.

Details on fund use and our longer term plans will be sent to you in our next update. Please visit our website for updates on current activities:
