Summary

This project will rebuild Chujiang School, severely damaged by the earthquake that hit Sichuan China May 12th 2008. It will be a permanent school for 1200 students now in temporary schools and tents.

What is the issue, problem, or challenge?

In conjunction with the Chengdu Education Bureau and local partners, ISG Capital Management has initiated this project, which will rebuild a 9-year school, Chujiang School, that was severely damaged by the earthquake that hit Sichuan Province, China on May 12th, 2008. The 1200 students are now studying in temporary schools and tents. This project aims to provide long-term educational infrastructure for these students so they can excel and learn in a proper environment as soon as possible.

How will this project solve this problem?

Funds raised will go directly toward reconstruction planning and construction costs for rebuilding Chujiang School. If successful, we can rebuild the school in one year and the students can be studying in their rebuilt school by September 2009.

Potential Long Term Impact

The project will benefit 1200 students by helping them to move to a permanent school building from temporary schools and tents. Our solution is important because it will provide a means for the students to return to a proper learning environment.
