ECCA initiated School Environment Improvement Program in the year 2000. Experience has shown that enrollment of students increases and is maintained when facilities (toilets, water, greenery) are improved. Training teachers is also required to effectively manage the classrooms, develop positive relationship with children and community, and facilitate curriculum that leads to better knowledge of sustainable living. A common vision for the development of school is also required.
Many villagers in remote Nepal have no electric sources and rely on kerosene lamps and wood fires that pose fire and health hazards. Household solar electric systems are a simple solution. They provide clean electricity and opportunity for women to be bearers of light in their communities. With your help Karuna-Shechen will train and empower women to install 104 solar home lighting systems in isolated villages.
There is a vast amount of unspent funding available for physical reconstruction in Nepal and almost none to stop the evil of child trafficking, which according to a recent Child Rescue Nepal survey has increased in the years since the earthquake. Help us to stamp out the sale and exploitation of children in Nepal.
Many children were orphaned or displaced by disastrous 2015 earthquakes in Nepal. Ama Foundation is working with anti-trafficking organizations and the Nepal government to help find these children a safe home. Since 2015, we have taken 20 new children into our home, which can house 75 children - but we currently only have funding for the 46 children who currently live there. Your contribution helps to take in more children and give them a loving home, an education and a future.

Hence, the need to enhance the leadership of adolescent girls is not only necessary but imperative.
In Nepal, there are still many parents who do not send their children to school because of financial hardship. School enrollment and attendance need to be increased through care, support and building up child competency. Students need to be encouraged through hands-on practical learning, which will make learning interesting. Through an integrated approach with the curriculum, students will be trained to understand and gain deeper insight on various environmental issues affecting our daily life.

Last year, a powerful earthquake caused devastation in many areas of Nepal. Remote regions, such as Gorkha and Sindhulpalchok, were among the worst-affected, with some people losing everything. PHASE had been working in these areas for many years, and within days was coordinating an emergency response to hand out relief and keep essential services running. Now, PHASE is supporting permanent rebuilding and long term recovery of these communities so they can again become self-sustainable.
In 2015, two violent earthquakes struck Nepal affecting 5.4 million people. AHAH arrived 72 hours after the first, to see how we could help. After six+ months of rubble removal and constructing camps, clinics and homes, we began to focus on rebuilding resilient schools. This program, now entering its fifth year, is our holistic approach to helping as many overlooked rural communities as possible recover -- and recover stronger -- by rebuilding the schools at the center of community life.
The "Kinship Care" model covers educational as well as living expenses for children. Children in this program either have parents who cannot afford to care for them or who have been orphaned by the 2015 earthquake. NYF finds the child's nearest kin and provides support for the family to cover the child's education and upbringing.
Four years ago this past April, Nepal was hit by a 7.8 magnitude earthquake. At the time, we had a volunteer on the ground. Fortunately, she and clinic staff were safe, as well as the villagers. However, the clinic itself caved in, destroying medical supplies as well as staff and volunteer possessions. Funds are urgently needed to rebuild the Chanaute clinic and replace equipment and supplies so that we may continue treating patients in need. Please help us to reach our goal!
The Shree Bhumimata secondary school was forced to close its doors after being badly damaged in the 2015 Nepal earthquake. Its 250 students, most from disadvantaged families, were forced to attend class in a temporary space which is crowded, cold and ill-equipped. This project will rebuild the village school, providing quality education in a safe space to a community which is in dire need of an opportunity to rise out of poverty and combat gender inequality and discrimination.
The devastating Nepal earthquake in 2015 destroyed families and livelihoods, and pushed one million into extreme poverty.

Global Family Village is partnering with the CHHATRAPATI FREE CLINIC (CFC), HIMALAYAN HUMAN RIGHTS (HIMRIGHTS) & GLOBAL FAMILY VILLAGE-NEPAL (GFV-N) to assist victims that are without proper shelter or sufficient food, and are becoming more vulnerable and at-risk. The 3 organizations have created a comprehensive program that is empowering & sustainable, helping the families to heal and become strong.
Nearly two years after the 2015 earthquakes hundreds of families are living in dilapidated temporary shelters. Thousands of children are learning in temporary spaces, many of which are open to the harsh Himalayan elements. They do not need to. Even unsafe houses may be salvageable through retrofitting, which is much faster and cheaper than rebuilding from scratch. We want to get families back in safe houses and schools now. Our Board and supporters will match your donation 100%, up to $45,000.
It is now 1 year after the April 25, 2015 earthquake and schools are still waiting to be refurbished. Improving schools will encourage attendance and promote safety for the children while parents are busy in the fields. A child in school is safe from child traffickers and child labor. Our goal is to provide a good education, safety, relief from poverty and a window to the world through books..
