Another crucial task was completed with assessment of the most affected area, Gorkha district. Our team was there last week. We did a thorough assessment of the schools which were severely damaged by the earthquake. After spending almost a week in different places of Gorkha, we came across many schools which were in no position to run their regular classes. Many schools require rebuilding and reconstruction. After scanning through the affected areas in need basis, OLE Nepal team is planning to reconstruct five schools in Gorkha district with generous support from our friends at AirAsia Foundation and from local and international donors. Along with rebuilding of the schools, OLE Nepal will specially focus on providing learning resources to the students through an innovative tool called XO laptop.
We will be sharing detailed information about the relief project soon. Check out some photos taken during the visit:
