Today Journeys visited the Baluwa Village in the Gorkha District, near the earthquake’s epicenter. The population of this village is 600 people, and most of the houses and buildings were damaged in the earthquake and aftershocks.
Journeys is knee-deep in rebuilding Sanjiwanti Higher Secondary School in Dhulikhel. Most of the school buildings were damaged in the devastating April 25th earthquake and its aftershocks. We are currently reconstructing the computer lab of this school. This is one of the biggest schools of Kavre District with 836 students (421 boys and 415 girls) studying from grades 1 to 12.
The rebuilding in Khokana and Bungmati is complete! Today Narayan said, “We are very happy to handover our shelter to the earthquake affected families. Special thanks to Journeys International Inc and family, all our donors globally who help us help the affected families, without your support this program could not be successful.”
It’s been more than 100 days since the Nepal earthquake hit. Our shelters in Khokana and Bungmati are almost complete, and now efforts are focused on electricity, water supplies, and putting in three toilets. In one week, all the new houses will be turned over the people.
