Summary

The main problem with earthquake-affected students especially girls in Nepal is that they have difficulty going back to school as most lost their homes and livelihoods and some have parents and siblings who did not survive. They are indeed in very dire strait and they are prey to criminal syndicates offering them jobs outside of the country but only to end up as prostitutes. This project will try to send 200 hardly affected girls to college or vocational school.

Challenge

The main problem is that hardest hit survivors of the Nepal earthquake who are of school age have not gone to school because their assets are gone or they lost their parents. They are prey to criminal syndicates victimizing the youths especially the girls and enticing them to supposedly lucrative jobs outside of Nepal but they end up in prostitution dens. There is a need to send these students back to school.

Solution

Sending the drop-outs back to school especially women and girls is a way out to this very difficult and de-humanizing predicament. All this needs is tuition fee, supplies and allowance for the returning students.

Long-Term Impact

When the returning students finally graduates, they will be able to assist re-build the severely damaged areas through their skills and knowledge. Best of all they will be useful again as compared to the present where they are potential victims of criminal gangs preying on hapless survivors.
