Rebuild 50 safe and effective 21st century schools with experienced and responsible partners to meet the long term growth of Nepali children. The schools will not only be learning centers for the 10,000 kids, but a conduit for community services ranging from health and hygiene education, purified water, solar power, computers, computer training, online teaching, skype, e-medicine to up to date crop prices for farmers.

A little more detail:
Our comprehensive plan ensures that the children and their communities will benefit from support systems that provide clean water, solar power, computers and internet access.These support systems will succeed through proper training for the kids, teachers and families.
Our past experience of working with Nepali orphans and children with special needs has taught us that a full on, holistic approach is needed when addressing the needs of Nepali children. Our international partnerships in the rebuilding efforts will help assure that the 10,000 children attending the 50 schools will have a fair chance of rising above the circumstances they were born into and compete in an ever changing environment.
We have completed an extensive design and engineering process with a NYC based architecture firm working with American/Nepali structural engineers to assure that our schools are very safe but at the same time very economical to build with skilled and unskilled labor.
