The devastating earthquakes of April 25th and May 12th have destroyed or damaged more than 16,000 public and private schools in Nepal, this is almost half of Nepal's total school according to the United Nations Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs Asia and the Pacific. Recent data from Nepal Earthquake Authority shows that

only 10% schools were reconstructed and remaining are waiting for external & internal support for reconstruction. Prior experience show that if childrenare out of school for long periods, many could fall into child labor, child marriage, and sexual exploitation. Children who are out of school are also at greater risk of violence, prostitution, and other life threatening, often criminal activities. Many of these children simply will never return to the classroom. The children of Nepal need the collective support of national and international communities to rebuild the destroyed and repair the damaged schools so that the children are not deprived of their basic right to education for months or even years to come. Embracing this reality Rotary Club of Dhulikhel has given top priority to construct the destroyed community schools in earthquake affected areas.

Shree Chandeshwori Secondary School lies at SittalPati VDC of Sindhuli District of Nepal. It is 135 km away from Kathmandu, the capital city of Nepal. This district is one of the worst affected district of Nepal where majority of people are from disadvantage & low income community. Shree Chandeshwori Secondary School is few schools in this area that has been providing better education service to the children. There are more than 180 students as per school records studying up to class 8. After destructive earthquake of April 25, 2015 student are forced to study in crack old building built by stone & mud. Even small trigger can lead to unthinkable accident. The problem becomes worst during rainy season and school has to stop the study .Since school is damaged and not suitable to run class many students have started to stop to go school The community is enthusiastic to reconstruct the Shree Chandeshwori Secondary School in the village and have agreed to actively participate in this endeavor as a collaborative community project.Besides the reconstruction of school,project will also setup computer lab,library,provide 50 desks & Benches and 4 rooms toilet as school have 5 rooms toilet (3 for girls,2 for boys & same for teacher) not sufficient for current student .

The timeline for this project is 18 months and all the funds will be used to reconstruct the earthquake resistance school building,4 rooms toilet,computer lab,library and 50 desks & benches .Rotary club members will be involve till the project get completed in different ways as per preference.

Amount Requested from The Rotary Foundation






DDF contributions in grey are pending approval of the corresponding district committee.

Note: as of July 1, 2015 there is a 5% additional support fee for cash contributions. This fee does not appear in the financials above because it does not apply if the funds are sent directly to the project account (without going through TRF, and therefore without Paul Harris credit). Clubs sending their cash contribution to TRF must be aware they will have to send an additional 5%.
