A Classroom for Ranjita

A microproject by International Disaster Volunteers (IDV)
Vetted

Summary

Ranjita is 12 and she's a survivor of two Nepal earthquakes. Ranjita lives with her family in Bhaktapur. Ranjita's school was damaged in the first earthquake and Ranjita and her classmates are now struggling to learn in a hot, uncomfortable temporary classroom. Ranjita wants to be a teacher when she's older, but if she can't receive a quality education her dreams will be lost. But with your help, we'll provide Ranjita with a permanent classroom and give her back the future she deserves.

Challenge

In 2015 Nepal was devastated by two earthquakes in less than three weeks. Over 36,000 classrooms were destroyed or heavily damaged and more than 1 million children, including Ranjita, are now learning in terrible conditions. This is causing further harm to children like Ranjita by denying them a quality education. This threatens their futures by locking them into a cycle of poverty.

Solution

Your donations will be used to provide a permanent classroom for children including Ranjita. Specifically this project will repair one permanent classroom at the Shree Bim Adarsha school in Bhaktapur. The school's beams and columns were left structurally intact by the earthquake, but many of the walls collapsed. Your donations will make one classroom safe and usable by rebuilding and rendering brick walls, and by replacing doors and windows. We'll then paint to make the classroom beautiful.

Long-Term Impact

Your donations will give kids including Ranjita back their education and help them escape poverty when they're older. By allowing us to provide a permanent classroom, you'll ensure these kids not only recover from the earthquakes, but also build stronger futures in the long-term. Ranjita summed this up when we asked her why she wanted to be a teacher. She said: "in order for a nation to [be] success[ful] the country must be well educated."
