ISAK’s Project Nepal team has been working to support victims of the 2015 earthquake in Nepal for several months now, and through crowd-funding and other efforts the group has raised more the $20,000!
Throughout the project, Grade 11 students, Himanshu, Karma, Sangita, Yashwini, Yuichiro, Paolo, and Dilrabo have tried to focus on what is most important and needed in the disaster area as they determine the best way to allocate funds and help put people’s lives back together. To understand the situation better, the team has conducted research and interviewed various volunteers on the ground as well as NGO’s working in disaster relief.
The students worked with a local campaign, started by a Member of Parliament in Nepal, called the ‘Let’s Build Schools Campaign’ to build 13 temporary learning centers throughout various earthquake affected rural areas. On December 28th, they were invited to a felicitation ceremony to recognize their efforts in helping the campaign, and Himanshu who represented the team received a certificate from the former President of Nepal, Dr. Ram Baran Yadav. The students have also been working on building healthcare centers in the rural areas.
We are proud of the Project Nepal team for working for positive change.
