Donation goes directly to local communities
For $20, you can help to provide daily meals to one student in post-earthquake Nepal for a month.
The April 25th, 2015 and May 5th earthquake destroyed many buildings within the communities that we serve. Many families are homeless now. The school buildings that NEIO built are structurally sound enough to serve as central hubs to the communities in this time of emergency.
Although, we are not a disaster relief agency, we are immediately helping in the following ways:
Our long term goals are:
- We have provided emergency funding to purchase and transport food to Basa village near Mt. Everest that reached out to us due to food shortages.
- We have provided supply food to students at Nurbuling school.
- We have provided emergency funding to purchase and transport food to Panchakanya VDC, Nuwakot.
- We will provide temporary shelter and classrooms for students at Nurbuling school, as currently there is not enough safe space.
- Where possible, we will provide emergency funding for food, water and shelter to schools or communities requiring such help.
- To repair damaged building if possible, and to reconstruct collapsed structures within Nurbuling School area.
- Continues to assist with rebuilding efforts in the communities where we work and get schools functioning again.
