Build A School, Build An Education

Education is the ticket to knowledge, to freedom, to life. The children in rural Nepal lost their school to the earthquake last April and we want to help rebuild it.

Our goal is to build an elementary school for 128 children in a rural village in the Sindhupalchok district in Nepal. Help us raise $15,000 CAD in building materials.


Earthbag Technology

The school will be made of "Earthbags", a cost-effective yet quick and durable method of construction. Earthbags are made of polypropylene bags and are filled with soil. They are gradually stacked in a staggered pattern similar to brick-layering. Barbed wires between the layers add strength and stability to the structure. Other materials such as bamboo and metal sheet are used for the roof.
