Summary

Three years ago, the earthquakes in Nepal destroyed hundreds of schools, many of which have been replaced by 'Temporary Learning Centres'. The Rotary Club of Yeovil, U.K., with its partners, Mondo Challenge Foundation, School in a Bag and the Helambu Education Livelihood Partnership, in conjunction with Rotary District 1200 are rebuilding Shree Saraswoti School in Helambu Province, Nepal.

Challenge

A magnitude 7.8 earthquake struck Nepal on April 25th 2015, killing over 9,000 people and injuring 22,000. According to Nepalese Government figures, 475 of the 545 schools in the Sindhupalchok District were completely destroyed. The children of Shree Saraswoti School are currently trying to learn in Temporary Learning Centres (TLCs) made of corrugated iron which are hot in the summer, freezing in the winter and wet during the monsoon season.

Solution

The rebuild will involve constructing a six room, two storey school frame structure building with hollow-concrete blocks for in-fill walls, along with horizontal and vertical bands of concrete for strong reinforcement. The design has been approved by both the school management community and Department of Education/Department of Urban Development and Building Codes in Nepal. Each classroom will have a space to fit up to 35-40 students. The school already has land available on which to build.

Long-Term Impact

We anticipate that the successful implementation of this project shall benefit 5,000 children over a thirty year period.
