A classroom for Yuka after the earthquakes

A microproject by International Disaster Volunteers (IDV)


Yuka is fourteen and she's a survivor of two Nepal earthquakes. Yuka lives with her family in Sindupalchok district. Yuka's school was badly damaged in the first earthquake, and Yuka and her classmates have been struggling to learn in a temporary classroom ever since. Yuka wants to be a pilot when she's older, but without a quality education this dream will be lost. With your help, we'll provide Yuka with a permanent classroom and give her back the future she deserves.

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 Yuka, are now learning in temporary classrooms that are rapidly falling apart. This is causing further harm to Yuka by denying her a quality education. This threatens her future, and Yuka risks becoming trapped in a cycle of poverty.


Your donations will be used to help provide a permanent classroom for Yuka and her classmates at the Shree Bal Shiksha Secondary School in Sindhupalchok. We're providing five permanent classrooms at this school and this work will cost a total of $16,000. This project will therefore fund a fifth of the cost of one classroom.

Long-Term Impact

Your donations will give kids including Yuka back their education, and help them escape poverty when they're older. Yuka's school is about three hours from Kathmandu, and its more rural location means that kids like Yuka are poorer, and more neglected, than those in the capital. By helping us to provide a permanent classroom for them, you'll ensure these kids not only recover from the earthquakes, but also build stronger futures in the long-term.
