The massive earthquakes in Nepal has destroyed thousands of buildings, including family homes, schools, temples, monasteries and shrines. These losses are catastrophic in a country where the per capita income is less than two dollars a day. In the aftermath of the earthquake, Nepal Youth Foundation has launched a major relief effort to provide immediate help for those most in need as well as long-term rebuilding. With our experience over the last 25 years providing food, water and shelter, building 100 classrooms and 16 Nutritional Rehabilitation Homes, and currently constructing a large children’s village and vocational school, “Olgapuri Village”, we are equipped to provide disaster relief now as well as in the coming months.
