Architects and Nonprofits Rebuild the Nepal Education System from Ground Up
Since a devastating earthquake, the country's schools have been in desperate shape, but the future is looking brighter with schools that adapt to destruction
In April of this year, Nepal's 7.8 magnitude earthquake killed over 8,000 people and destroyed more than 25,000 classrooms in about 8,000 schools. In an effort to rebuild the country's most devastated regions, SHoP Architects is partnering with two nonprofits to rebuild 50 public schools and lift Nepal education standards to new heights. While the government plays some role in the overall process, this venture displays how private organizations can help initiate progressive change in communities.
