#RebuildSchoolsRebuildNepal-1: Jhagare Danda P School, Dhading

Nepal has massively suffered from the mega-earthquake of April 25th and aftershocks to follow, which took almost 8800 lives, injuring uncountable people. Not only that, it went on smashing immeasurable number of private and government properties, which included government offices, residential homes, heritage sites, religious places, hospitals, schools and many others.

From the very beginning, we have been working on the immediate relief programs for those people in need, voluntarily. We managed some instant food items, tarpaulins, blankets, mosquito nets, hygiene items, medicines and others. We reached more than 900 families in 7 districts: Kathmandu, Rasuwa, Nuwakot, Kavre, Sindhupalchok, Dolakha and Okhaldhunga. We offered whatever we could voluntarily.

Along with other things, schools are hit the worst. It is estimated that with more than 15,000 schools affected, more than 25000 rooms are partially or totally destroyed affecting more than a million students in it. Since, we have long been working for children and their education, we decided to move from immediate relief items, to something long-lasting. So we created this campaign : Rebuild Schools, Rebuild Nepal.

To begin with, we have managed to build 5 rooms for a HIV School at Kirtipur, Kathmandu, Nepal where lives 21 children with HIV.
After that we moved to Dhading to build another school in a Chepang Community.
Shree Jhagare Danda Primary School where most of the students are from poor and marginalized Chepang family, had two buildings and one was completely damaged by the earthquake.

After preliminary visit, our engineer friends came up with the design and proposal and our friend Binamra Silwal managed to get letter of approval from VDC and District Education Office, Dhading.. As soon as we got the approval, the agreement to build the school was done on 15 August 2015 in the presence of tfcians, School Management and the contractor.

New School Building

List of helping hands of tfcNepal.

Due to blockade in the country the estimated time and budget both exceeded. With the support of the school management, VDC, the community people, our friends in Nepal and outside Nepal 3-room school building was completed in almost 8 months.

On May 1, 2016 we had a small programme at Jhagare Danda Primary School to handover the new building to the school management and the community.
Along with the new building, we donated 12 desk-bench sets, school bags and stationary materials to each students of the school. There are 90 students in the school from class 1 to class 5, where 90% of them are from Chepang Community. The students and parents were very happy to receive School bags and stationary materials.

We would like to thank Organization for Nepalese Culture and Welfare (ONCW) UK, NFFD (Nepal France Famille et Development), Shruti Indiana, USA (via Saurav B Singh), Kalika Prasad Ghimire, Sameer Mani Dixit, Ngawang Yonten Gyatso UK, Photojournalist Club, Ekaraj/Shubhadra Silwal, Prabin Bajagain USA, Niraj Gautam USA, Late Yadav Prasad Risal, Sunil Shrestha, Roshan Joshi, Nabin Thapa, Madhusudan-Serene-Saurab-Megha, Janak Raj Bhata for financial support, Ujjwal Acharya and Tara Adhikari helping us build Ujjwal-Tara Chautari at School premises where children get to play and rest during break time, Dhulikhel Rotary Club for School furniture, Sudip Khatiwada for Stationary materials and 2 white boards, Sudip Koirala for 90 school bags, ODOAN (Orthodontic and Dentofacial Orthopedic Association of Nepal) for Jasta Pata.

नयाँ आशा - भूकम्प पीडितका लागि tfcNepal को सहयोग प्रयास

२०७२ वैसाख १२ गते मध्यान्ह ११:५६ बजे !

नेपाल ठूलो बिपत्तिको शिकार भयो। सबैले अनुमान गरेको तर कहिले आउला भनेर भन्न नसकिएको ‘ठूलो भूकम्प’ले काठमाडौं उपत्यकाका तीन जिल्ला सहित ११ जिल्ला हल्लायो। लगभग ५८ सेकेन्ड कम्पन हुँदा उपत्यका लगायत देशको मध्यपुर्वी भागका जिल्लामा जन, धन, सम्पदा र मनहरु तहसनहस भए।

आजसम्म प्राप्त जानकारी अनुसार शनिबारको भूकम्प र त्यसपछि आएका २ सय ३५ भन्दा परकम्पबाट साढे ८ हजार भन्दा बढीले ज्यान गुमाएका छन् भने २७ हजारभन्दा बढी घाइते भएका छन्। ध्वस्त भएका नीजि,व्यवसायिक, सरकारी तथा सांस्कृतिक सम्पदाको विनाशको तथ्याङ्क आउने क्रम जारी नै छ।

कम्पन र परकम्पबाट क्षतविक्षत देशका विभिन्न भूभागमा तत्काल उद्दार र राहतको आवश्यकता थियो। भूकम्पको प्रकोपपछि सरकारका साथमा स्थानीय जनता जागरुक भएर आफ्नो आफ्नो स्थानबाट आफूले सक्ने ठाउँमा उद्दार र राहतमा जुटे। उद्दार तथा राहत कार्यमा देशका तीनैवटा सुरक्षा निकायहरु नेपाली सेना, सशस्त्र प्रहरी, जनपद प्रहरीले आफ्ना सिमित स्रोत र साधनका बाबजुद प्रभावित क्षेत्रमा खटेर अनवरत सेवा गरे। सरकारी निकायका कर्मचारीहरु, गैरसरकारी संस्थाहरु लगायत विदेशी समुदाय तथा व्यक्तिगत तवरबाट देशभित्रै यो पीडामा मलम लगाउन सबैले योगदान गरेका छन्।

About Mega Disaster in Nepal, Earthquake 2015

Natural disasters are beyond our control. And now, we are unfortunate to bear this pain of immense loss of lives and properties in Nepal. The country was hit by 7.9 Ritcher (Rector) Scale magnitude Earthquake on 25th April, 2015 (Baisakh 12, 2072).  The country can't even mourn as it has the tremendous responsibilities to console disaster hit Nepalese almost all over the country.

Saying 'Youths' are the next resources to Nepal, We have a huge responsibility of consoling earthquake hit friends/brothers/sisters. This is the time to act to support and ease the lives of survivors who are in immense need of basic requirements to living. We have been continuously in touch with friends in social media. This however is not just enough. We need to reach to most of the earthquake victims and homeless individuals not only in Kathmandu but also to nearby villages in Gorkha, Nuwakot, Makawanpur, Sindhupalchowk, Rasuwa and more.

Our volunteer friends have been continuously supporting in individual accessible rescue and relief activities to donations and more. We would like to thank to those kind hearts as well as those supporting us morally over social media. Since, @tfcnepal is a diverse group of individuals and professionals, friends from various backgrounds are delivering their expertise on medical to engineering, relieving to consultation, rescuing to social mobilization works.

We have received funds from various kind hearted friends which we have used for various rescue and relief activities. We will be updating the list about these soon.

Lets act together to fight back this disaster. Lets build a better tomorrow. Together we can.
