More than 6,000 people have been confirmed dead since the magnitude 7.8 earthquake struck Nepal on April 25th, with thousands more left injured, homeless, and still unaccounted for. The devastation across the country is immeasurable, and the need for immediate relief on the ground, immense.
This need will linger for weeks and months to come. But the process of healing and rebuilding Nepal will take years considering the scale of human loss, the breakdown of certain basic infrastructure, and the destruction of ancient cultural patrimony. The 20-year old Shikshya Foundation is a Nepal-based organization founded to provide the best possible education to underprivileged children.
Currently, the Shikshya Foundation is actively seeking donations to assist with Nepal’s immediate and long term rebuilding post-earthquake. Consider donating generously now at www.crowdrise.com/nepalearthquakefund. A portion of the donations received will be applied to immediate disaster relief, while the remaining funds will be applied to long-term sustainable rebuilding efforts. 100% of donations received will be distributed among those who need it most.
