Classrooms for Earthquake Survivors Like Kiran

A microproject by International Disaster Volunteers (IDV)
Vetted

Summary

Kiran is 10 and he's a survivor of two Nepal earthquakes. Kiran lives with his family in Tukucha Area 4 in Kavre district. Kiran's school was destroyed in the first earthquake and Kiran and his classmates now don't have anywhere to attend school and receive an education. This threatens Kiran's future by denying him an education. But with your help, we'll provide Kiran with a temporary classroom to get him back in school as quickly as possible.

Challenge

Nepal has been devastated by two earthquakes in less than three weeks. Over 32,000 classrooms were destroyed or heavily damaged by the earthquakes and more than 1 million children, including Kiran, now don't have anywhere to attend school. This is causing further harm to children like Kiran by denying them an education. This threatens their futures by locking them into a cycle of poverty.

Solution

Your donations will be used to provide temporary classrooms for children including Kiran. Initially these temporary classrooms will consist of robust military style tents. As our work progresses we'll also begin building even more durable classrooms using materials such as bamboo and galvanised roofing tin. Regardless of construction style each of our units will consist of at least two classrooms that can accommodate 25 earthquake affected children like Kiran each.

Long-Term Impact

Your donations will give kids like Kiran an education and help them escape poverty when they're older. Tukucha is not far from Kathmandu but its more rural location means that kids like Kiran are poorer, and more neglected, than those in the capital. By allowing us to provide a temporary classroom for them, you'll ensure these kids not only recover from the earthquakes, but also build stronger futures in the long-term.
