Thousands of Schools are Damaged by the Quake

Nearly a million children in Nepal will not be able to return to school in the wake of last month’s earthquake, and more than 24,000 classrooms were damaged or destroyed in the disaster. NAO is partnering with Intel volunteers to start a Rebuilding Schools for Nepal initiative, and we need all the help we can get from your support. Our first school rebuild project will be to help Shree Jana Priya Secondary School, Tapting, Solukhumbu, Nepal, to repair the damaged classrooms, along with building a brand new girls’ hostel.
