Stories of EF philanthropy in Nepal

The crew and criteria for finding the right school

When we decided that a major initiative under the EF Global Classroom  was to rebuild a school damaged by the devastating earthquake in Nepal, our first order of business was ensuring we had the right team and standards in place. This would guarantee we’d be providing help for those truly in need and assist in the long-term recovery of Nepal.

THE SCHOOL STANDARDS
Finding the right school isn’t easy. The EF Nepal team has visited more than 50 schools, assessing the damage to each location. The final selection will be a school that is:
1. A public school
2. Open to both boys and girls
3. A village school
4. Damaged by the recent earthquake
5. Not receiving recovery assistance from another NGO or local governmentWHEN THE SEARCH IS OVER
Construction is set to begin at the start of the New Year. We will also share all of our school analysis and building designs with other organizations to further help with Nepal’s recovery.

Learn more about the community where we’re building, the school itself, and to follow our progress by checking in every few weeks.
