Safe Water for Healthy Nepal
A devastating 7.8 magnitude earthquake on 25 April 2015 and 7.3 magnitude on 12 May claimed life of around 9,000 people in Nepal and directly affected above 8 million people. Due to the destruction of houses, people were forced to refuge in open space and many lost their belongings. Around 24,000 classrooms and other school facilities have been damaged. With the limited water supply and the probability of using contaminated water, there is a high risk and increase of health and hygiene issues.

Nepal Earthquake Appeal: Three Years on
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.
School Environment Improvement Program - Nepal
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.
Community resilience in Nepal
Since the 2015 earthquake, BRAC's work in Nepal has transitioned from providing immediate aid relief to building resilience in affected communities. Through programs that invest in the livelihoods of community members and integrate disaster preparedness components, including community health, girls empowerment, and skills development, BRAC aims to strengthen communities' capabilities to withstand future shocks and catalyze sustainable development.
Ama Ghar Displaced Children Fund
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. We have already taken 15 of them into our Ama Ghar home, which can house 75 children - but we currently only have funding for the 50 children who currently live there. Please help us to raise the funds to take in more children and give them a loving home, an education and a future.
Bring Light to Isolated Villagers in Nepal
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.
Girls: Better after quake
A 9 months mentorship program aimed at unleashing the social leadership of 15 adolescent girls of earthquake affected area of Nepal.

Nuwakot is a district with one of the highest destruction caused by earthquake in 2015, labor migration among adults and highest rate of girls trafficking. Hence, the need to enhance the leadership of adolescent girls is not only necessary but imperative.
"Support-A-Child" Help Child Go To School & Study
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.
Nepal Earthquake : Support for remote communities
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.
