What it is about
- The earthquake of 2015 destroyed the village of Thade almost completely. Until today the village people still mainly live in emergency shelters because they have scarcely received any government support.
The aim is to support this village in the central themes:
- Health care
This village is supervised with the Austrian-Nepalese organization Cha Ya which has already begun building a school there.
Education is still a luxury for many children in Nepal, especially for girls. With individual scholarships Roots for Life supports girls, for which it wouldn’t be possible to attend school. All costs are being covered: school uniform, books, school meals, events, examination fees and many more. Thanks to these scholarships, many single mothers are now able to send their children to school.
Our part in this project
Roots for Life finances the last construction stage of the rebuilt of Shree Sarawati L.S. School in Thade: Three classrooms and respectable toilets with washing facilities (separate for boys and girls). The completion of the missing rooms and toilets is planned for summer / autumn 2017.Some families have lost their livelihoods due to the earthquake and its consequences, also the school attendance of their daughters were endangered. Roots for Life has therefore awarded scholarships for 6 girls to ensure their education.
