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 support for reconstruction.
Prior experience show that if children are 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 support of international communities to rebuild destroyed schools in Nepal so that the children are provided with opportunities to go to school. With this in mind, Rotary District 7475 and 3292 are collaborating to build schools in earthquake affected areas. If you like to partner with us on this school building project, let us know.

This project needs to receive some pledges to go to the next level. Please check the "Financing" tab to see the list of current pledges. Once the amount pledged is equal to the project budget, the status of the project will be automatically changed to "Fully Pledged". Click here to pledge support for this project.
Amount Requested from The Rotary Foundation (waived)
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%.
