Better Schools in Rural Nepal!

by Educate the Children Vetted since 2010 Top Ranked Effective Nonprofit Project of the Month Site Visit Verified


Many schools in rural Nepal were already in poor condition and lacking basic resources even before the devastating earthquakes of 25 April and 12 May 2015. ETC supported the immediate post-quake construction of temporary classrooms, and is now building and furnishing new classrooms in addition to supporting teachers and students in existing classrooms. Please see our project reports and photos for more information about how much this work means to more than 4,000 students and their teachers.

Scores of schools in rural Nepal were completely destroyed or damaged to the point of being unsafe by the spring 2015 earthquakes. The timely construction of temporary classrooms allowed children to resume their interrupted educations as quickly as possible. Those temporary classrooms - some of which lack windows or even walls, and most of which are inadequately supplied and furnished - will be in use with some modifications until permanent facilities can be rebuilt.


Educate the Children has been committed to improving the quality of education in Nepal for nearly 25 years. This project, which was launched before the earthquakes of 2015, enables the physical construction or improvement of classrooms at 30 schools in the Dolakha District. We provide supplies, furniture, and recreational and first aid materials. We also offer professional development opportunities for teachers.

Long-Term Impact

Children need a comfortable, well-supplied, and adequately sized learning space in order to do their academic best. Proper facilities also improve teachers' efficacy and students' attendance. Thousands of children are still using temporary facilities until such time as permanent facilities can be constructed. ETC has supported both temporary and permanent structures, as well as necessary supplies and furniture. The children deserve the best we can provide them in the short- and long-term.
