Stories of EF philanthropy around the world

Celebrating a milestone in the road to rebuilding Nepal

Almost two and a half years ago the EF Nepal team, set out to rebuild a damaged school in one of the most affected areas following the 2015 earthquake in Nepal.

On December 1, 2017, the EF Nepal team welcomed all EF staff members, in the Shanghai Headquarters, to join in celebration of the completion of Shree Jalapa Devi Higher Secondary School. The team, joined by Alex Hult, announced the completion of the school. They took all staff members through a short, visual experience of the team’s journey in Nepal, from creating new friendships to foraging for food in local villages. After all the hard work, endless dirt road journeys and sleepless nights, the school is in the final stages of completion and is set to open its doors in early 2018.

Thanks to the research, technology and all the local helping hands, Shree Jalapa Devi is now one of the safest school structures in Nepal – eager to open its doors to the local community.
