Nepal is still rebuilding after devastating earthquakes destroyed cities and left more than 500,000 displaced and homeless. A 7.8 earthquake struck the country on April 25, 2015, and a second quake struck on May 12 that year. More than 8,000 died and close to 20,000 were injured as a result of the earthquakes and their aftermath. Forty of Nepal’s 75 districts were affected, 16 of them severely, with homes, schools, buildings, cattle, fields ready for harvest and other property destroyed.

Even before the earthquakes, Nepal struggled with a poverty rate of 25 percent with the rate jumping to 50 percent for those living in remote parts of the country where farming is almost impossible.

Build primary & secondary schools

In addition to the immediate aid and assistance provided, Salesian missionaries set out with long-term planning and rebuilding. Missionaries have been building temporary schools and addressing needs for long-term training.

The United Nations noted that more than 1,300 schools were destroyed during the earthquakes. Salesian missionaries are utilizing the skills of the newly trained students from Don Bosco Thecho to assist in the rebuilding of schools with a goal of reconstructing at least 40 schools. To date, more than 21 temporary learning centers have been completed. The temporary learning centers are of such high quality they may serve as permanent school buildings.
