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 most of their belongings. Around 24,000 classrooms and other school facilities have been damaged. After conducting immediate relief distribution works, now, ECCA is focusing on recovery, rehabilitation and rebuilding works.
What is the issue, problem, or challenge?
Due to loss of houses, people are obliged to refuge in tents & communal shelters. There is lack of basic facilities to sustain life, due to which people are suffering. As their belongings have been buried in the debris, the children do not have education materials. Due to the damage of the school building, game materials, library books and other materials have been buried.
How will this project solve this problem?
ECCA will provide the required stationary and educational materials support, in coordination with the school. When basic education materials like stationary are provided to students as well as in schools, it will encourages the students to study better and continue school. In addition to that, the teachers will also be able to facilitate the learning of students in school.
Potential Long Term Impact
The project will support the children's studies. It helps to increase the school attendance of children. The project protects the child's rights to be educated and supports in achieving MDGs.
