Edge of Seven October Newsletter

Eo7 Update on Nepal

Children at Ramailo Jyoti Lower Secondary School where Eo7 built a temporary learning center and working to build new classrooms.
Edge of Seven recently returned from a visit to our program sites in Nepal where we are working with our implementing partner, The Small World, to evaluate the seven Temporary Learning Centers that we funded as well as the seven permanent school buildings we are in progress on. Learn more about our project 7+7: Rebuild Nepal.
The trip included visits to schools in: Saleri, Basa, Mukli, Deusa, Tingla, Kastop, Damku and Taksindu, among others. We were especially interested in seeing exactly how things were “on the ground” and how these remote villages (3-12 hour hikes) were faring after the earthquakes in the spring. In the Solukhumbu Region, we found that while most kids were still in school, that there is widespread hidden damage. Many buildings that collapsed fully are now stacked stones. Many more buildings were damaged beyond use or damaged with the danger of falling in. Many of these buildings, both homes and schools, are STILL in use. It is a heartbreaking scene to see the Russian Roulette that is being played with lives there.
As a first step in rebuilding, we were able to prioritize the schools that we will start work on immediately as the government sends out its guidelines for rebuilding, and then gives approvals to our plans. We will be posting a series of blogs to our Facebook page here over the coming weeks to tell you and show you more of what we found on the ground.
