Building a school for children of back to back natural disasters

The Suryadhoye Primary School located in Ramche 4, Sindupalchowk, Nepal went through rough times. Photographed below is the August 2014 landslide.

 

Unfortunately, sometimes when it rains, it pours. In April 2015 a devasting earthquake hit Nepal killing and injuring more than 29,000. The school was destroyed in the middle of its reconstruction.

With the help of our Connecticut community, our Program Development Director, Saroj Bhandari, raised over $9,000 in the U.S. summer and fall of 2015

And flew to Nepal to get to work with our partner NGO "The Survivors", and the tenacious community 

 The school was built 

Classes started June 4, 2016!
