Updates on our program schools

May 2015 | Kathmandu

The magnitude of 7.8 richter scale earthquake had hit Nepal very hard destroying many lives. The earthquake left many people homeless by destructing numerous houses and destroying our infrastructures, religious sites, historical monuments and many of Nepal’s precious artifacts. Small magnitudes of earthquakes has always occurred in Nepal due to its geographical placement. However, the one that occurred in March 25th, 2015 was one of a kind that many people had never experienced before. OLE Nepal family would like to convey its deepest sympathy to those who lost their lives in this natural disaster and also to those who lost their loved ones in this unfortunate turn of events. May we all find courage to overcome this disaster soon.

Through this post, we would like our well wishers, supporters, stakeholders and project partners to know about the current situation of our program schools starting with the ones in Gorkha district. Gorkha which lies in the Western Development Region was the epicenter of the earthquake, particularly the village of Barpak. We have been constantly trying to contact schools and gather information about their situations on the ground. With the heavy-heart, we have attained the status of our program schools which lie in the districts near to the epicenter.
