Thanks to everyone who has contributed towards our relief efforts to this point. Kids of Kathmandu, along with our trusted partners, has reached over 20,000 people with relief efforts since the April 25th earthquake.
We have now transitioned to rebuilding schools with our long term partners Asian Friendship Network (AFN) in 4 of the most earthquake devastated districts where villages have completely lost their schools in the earthquake. AFN has built over 80 schools in nepal over the past 16 years. Their longstanding relationship with the Ministry of Education, has afforded our AFN/KoK partnership the rights to build 30 temporary and 50 permanent schools in the hardest hit districts in Nepal. AFN will build the schools, Kids of Kathmandu will outfit all the schools with desks and chairs, blackboards, stationary, uniforms, sports gear, and book bags for 4,000 kids. The combined efforts will help to prevent a backslide of decades of work from the global community providing educational opportunities for Nepal’s children.
Kids of Kathmandu strongly believes that we must rebuild schools to continue to build minds.
