Morning of April 25th, 2015 changed many lives. over 9000 lives were lost. Several thousand school building are destroyed. Close to 950,000 kids were displaced after this earthquake. "Sydney Jo Schumacher" October 20th. 1995 - April 25, 2015. A beloved daughter, sister, niece, cousin, granddaughter, and friend, passed away on April 25, 2015, during the earthquake in Langtang Village, Nepal. Sydney was 19 years old. My Team and I will be embarking on a journey to honor Sydney as this is what Sydney would do and build these schools a safe habitat for these kids. These 3 projects will be accomplished in partnership with High Altitude Mountain Workers Welfare Association. A non-profit organization in Nepal.
These three locations will be
- Village Yangri where we have built 9 homes already and in process of finishing another 41. I have spent countless hours in this village both living there with my friends and back in USA to help them get their lives back. Click Here for details.
- Village Hill in Solu- Khumbu area where we have been doing a medical clinic for a few years and on my last visit I witnessed the dire need for a new school building as old ones are not habitable. Click Here for details.
- Darghari, Rasuwa district. A heavenly village surrounded by beautiful mountains, the school was completely destroyed. You can see details of the project Click Here for details.
In honor of Sydney, all these school will have a plaque on the wall which will read;
