The Story

Nepal's 2015 earthquake was devastating, destroying over 9,000 schools around the country. Over two years later, children are still attending classes in "Temporary Learning Centers" (TLCs), simple structures meant to bridge the gap until schools could be re-built. Nepal Rises is one organization working tirelessly to re-build safe, clean, permanent schools for children throughout the earthquake-affected area.

Shree Surya Primary School in Nuwakot was damaged by Earthquake making it unsafe to conduct classes inside the school building. School is located in an isolated terrain led by female teachers. The majority of the children belong to indigenous Tamang community of Nepal in which trafficking rate is quite high due to low literacy rate and high poverty rate. The only way forward for them is by educating the younger ones and helping them build their future.

Another thing that was observed was  there is small stream on the way to School. During monsoon crossing the stream by the children becomes really dangerous since the continuous rainfall make the stream full of water and quite dangerous. Parents are worried and keep kids at home, resulting in more absenteeism.

Nepal Rises aims to build 2 buildings with 6 classrooms with WASH facilities. Nepal Rises has raised enough funds to build classroom but we don't have any fund remaining for building Safe Drinking water system, toilet and bridge. The proceed to this fundraiser will directly go to build Bio-sand filtration system in school for safe drinking water, 3 toilets and a bridge.

About Us

Nepal Rises is a not for profit working to create positive and lasting change among weaker communities in rural Nepal. We initially started as a volunteer wing to help provide relief and recovery to the survivors of the 2015 Earthquake in Nepal. We are also registered as 501 c 3 organization in US. Which means every donation that you provide to this fundraiser is tax deductible. 

During relief phase, we rescued people by distributing food, medicines, water purification jars, tarpaulin, and sanitation materials impacting around 187300 people. In the recovery process, we collaborated with partner organizations to build temporary learning shelters and temporary buildings in some of the disaster stricken districts.


We are currently working on the Project “Rebuilding Hope” to rebuild physical infrastructure for some of the damaged schools to ensure safe learning.

Another area we are focusing is integration of technology in education system to improve the quality of learning for children. For this we will be installing computer labs in some public schools around Kathmandu.

We are on a long journey to rebuild Nepal and we need your love and support to continue our works.

There is a small flood river on the way to Shree Surya basic School (To see how students cross the flood river click here). Children (age 3 to 8) have to cross the river every time coming and leaving school. During rain in monsoon the flow of river is thrice the amount than seen in video and becomes risky for children to access the school. Please support to build bridge.

"Difficult roads often leads to beautiful destination". It has been a challenging journey but now coming to near end we are happy that we didn't give up. The construction of Shree Surya School is complete now. But we still don't have funds for bridge and toilet. Please help us providing toilets and bridge by donating
