Support For Nepal: Working With The British School Kathmandu

On 15th April 2015, a devastating earthquake rocked the foundations of Nepali society to the core. A magnitude 8 earthquake, it was the worst natural disaster to strike Nepal in 81 years. An estimated 8,000 people lost their lives to the quake, over 19,000 have been injured and thousands of homes across of the country have been damaged or destroyed. Furthermore, the impact of this earthquake extends far  beyond the immediate aftermath. The lives of thousands of Nepali citizens have been drastically altered in the span of a few weeks through the changes this will bring to their families, their society and their  livelihoods.


Our partners at the British School Kathmandu have gone above and beyond the call of duty to provide aid to those afflicted by the earthquake. The generous staff and students have offered the school car park as a place of temporary shelter for those affected and the school has hosted the arrival of aid materials from Medecins Sans Frontières. They have also arranged visits to their local school partners which were  decimated by the violent tremors. So far, the school community has provided food and tarpaulins for 83 families.


The scale of destruction, however, is beyond comprehension and rebuilding will be a monumental challenge. Many local schools such as the Dhading School, the Disabled New Life Centre and the Bungamati DSA School, which cared for and taught hearing and sight impaired children, were completely devastated during this tragic event. These schools had a massive sphere of influence, providing education for large communities of impoverished people who needed them desperately. Rebuilding these schools would provide education for children in the local Nepali community and would be a significant step towards repairing a shattered society.


We, as part of this global community, seek to continue our support of people in need and help those less fortunate than ourselves. As such, during the next few weeks, BIS students will be working with the British School Kathmandu to raise funds to rebuild the local schools with the hope that we can ease the suffering of those who have been affected by the disaster. Every little bit counts towards assisting those in need and we hope you will give generously. Prefects will be collecting in school and awarding badges to the most generous.
