Nepal - Rebuilding the Road to Recovery
We are seeking the generosity of Rotary Clubs, other partner organisations and individuals to donate funds to finance essential community development projects as part of a long term programme of disaster recovery & sustainable community capacity building across remote rural communities. This important work will benefit the village of Kalikasthan and neighbouring communities within the Rasuwa District of Nepal.
The Rotary Clubs of Southbank and Huon Valley in collaboration with the Rotary Club of Rasuwa have formed a team of passionate volunteers from various other Rotary clubs around Australia and Nepal as well as education professionals from the University of Southern Queensland. Our work aims to improve the lives of thousands of Nepalese people affected by the devastating earthquakes in 2015.
The current project will focus on English language skills and health care/hygiene educational support to school children and teachers through the provision of volunteer English language teachers and nurses as well as educational resources including laptops and other materials for schools across rural and remote areas of Nepal.
We are partnering with Days for Girls, a grassroots global not-for-profit organisation focussed on providing the opportunity for every girl in the world to receive education, safety, and dignity by gaining access to quality sustainable feminine hygiene and awareness. This is achieved by the direct distribution of sustainable feminine hygiene kits, by partnering with non-profits, groups and organisations, by raising awareness, and by helping communities around the world start their own programs.
Southbank Rotary is working with Days for Girls to provide these kits and life changing health education to communities in Nepal.
Additionally we will be undertaking community building and facilities repair and maintenance works in the region to assist with earthquake recovery efforts.
A group of volunteers will be travelling to Kalikasthan in November 2015 to provide school teachers and children with computer aided English language tuition, healthcare and hygiene education as well as providing laptop computers and other educational resources for the community.
Our work aims to address long-term sustainability and recovery needs of these communities and to improve overall health outcomes and provide economic and social opportunities to improve the lives and livelihood of the people of Nepal.
Southbank Rotary with our partner club Huon Valley Rotary has launched a fundraising campaign to support our project work in Nepal. Please donate generously now using our online fundraising page supported by Rotary Australia World Community Service. All donations over $2 are tax deductible.
