April 25, 2015 Nepal Earthquake

A strong (7.8) earthquake hit Nepal in the area near Barpak, a mountain village between Kathmandu and Pokhara. The earthquake was followed by many powerful aftershocks and a very powerful one (6.7) hit Nepal on Sunday April 26.

The earthquake caused extensive damage to buildings and thousands of deaths and injuries. This tremor was also felt in Pakistan, India and Bangladesh.

Many historic buildings collapsed, temples have been ruined, and roads are also destroyed. Nearly 9000+ deaths in Nepal and tens of deaths were in India and Tibet. The quake was followed by more than 260 aftershocks.  According to seismologist Roger Musson, the standard pattern for aftershocks is that the biggest aftershock will be one day after, and one magnitude less. Thus, the 6.7 magnitude aftershock on 26 April 2015 following the 7.9 magnitude main shock would fit this pattern. It is highly unlikely that the earthquake was a foreshock preceding an even larger earthquake. Therefore, an earthquake larger than 7.9 in the near future after 25 April 2015 is not expected. Anyone can go through this link for list of aftershocks in Nepal.

Smile in the midst of melancholy

The deplorable news of April 25 is not still rescinded. The feeling of threat is governed by the unbeatable none other than nature. Neither any hypothesis has been proved to eliminate this tremor nor there any pragmatic way to predict. Hence, this type of situation can occur anywhere anytime in this world. So, alertness is a sole solution to eradicate the loss to panic.

Every youth organizations along with different NGO and INGOs came up with relief program from the very first day of the quake. The youth clubs appeared more sensitive to this aftermath. They reached with some relief materials to such places where government organization has not been yet. Our organization Solidarity International Nepal too is not the exception to this case. So, with the additional support from Solidarity International USA, Solidarity International Hong Kong, Solidarity International Australia, Solidarity International Canada, Solidarity International Malaysia, Solidarity International UAE and Solidarity International Korea, the national councils of Solidarity International, The global coalition against poverty and inequality. We managed to get some relief materials for the survivors. Likewise few active local organizations in this tremor provided us with medicines and sanitary materials.

During the time of projects, we faced difficulties. The risks of getting looted, steep road, restriction of family members to go to earthquake prone areas, were some hindrances we faced at first. Despite, all these we came up with our mission on full swing. What we felt is that, still the villagers thought of getting cured soon if granted with more medicines. Some decided to take the medicine on their will without prescription from doctor. We were amazed to see the innocent faces groomed by the active young generation.

What we found?

In almost all of the medical camp we conducted, we saw a gradual increment in blood pressure level than previous. Most of the men in comparison to women had a high blood sugar level. Similarly, our medical camp at Thankot showed the trend high blood pressure in almost every men and women. But in the villages of Dolakha, Nuwakot and Sindhupalchowk the blood pressure of only few people were found high. This shows the unbalanced heath situation in urban than on rural areas. A tendency of sleeping after eating habit is a major factor to this scenario.

Likewise, the life expectancy of people in villages is more than the city areas. We didn’t saw any octogenarian in urban areas but dozens of what we saw in Dolakha, Nuwakot and Sindhupalchowk. Though much of the destruction occurred in rural areas, the people have not taken much of stress in comparison to urban. The greed, anxiety, worry, irritation, hustle and bustle are some causes that deteriorates the health in urban.

One of the most disappointing facts we faced is that some local denizens of capital city though they are prosperous and wealthy were demanding the food. But the locals of Hawa VDC, Dolakha when we requested didn’t demand for food rather they urged us to help in building of the school. We saw a sort of humanity in them. This shows the capital city has been a land of normless and a toxic city filled with noxious behavior.

Project HOPE

Project Hope

Investing in education is the single most effective means of reducing poverty.

Education is a key need, along with other basics, in today’s world for anyone, anywhere to have a good quality of life. In developing countries like Nepal, basic education is crucial to alleviating poverty, reducing inequality and driving economic growth.

Quality of education in Nepal is generally poor, characterized by high drop-out rates, lack of child- and girl-friendly facilities and child-centered learning environments. Nepal is home to 26.6 million people, with children younger than 15 years old making up more than 40% of the population. More than one in three people in Nepal live in extreme poverty, subsisting on less than $1 per day.

Education has given many of us the opportunities to lead a better quality life and attain our goals. However, for thousands of Nepalese children, education remains a distant dream due to poverty, caste, gender discrimination and lack of access to schools. The quality education remains the most important tool towards the realization of rights of all children.

Why Project HOPE?

This project offers educational scholarship, uniforms, stationery materials and resolve their basic & genuine human rights issues. It is associated with increasing the living and educational standards of underprivileged, war victims and Dalit so called untouchable children’s in rural areas of Nepal.

Education is one of the most important investments a country can make in its people, its future and is critical to reducing poverty and inequality. Education plays a decisive role in a child’s development. Project Hope helps to improve participation of children, their parents and the community in education planning, improve learning levels and reduce dropout rates of children.

Project “HOPE”:

Project “HOPE” is a literacy program initiated by Solidarity Nepal, A registered non-profitable and social welfare organization dedicated for Social Transformation in Nepal with a goal to provide Full Educational Scholarship to needy students in all 75 districts of Nepal to support more than 75,000 school going children in the future.

Besides this project also helps to improve participation of children, their parents and the community in education planning, improve learning levels and reduce dropout rates.

Goal
The goal of this project is to assist all the needy students in becoming good writers, active readers, creative thinkers, and resourceful learners by providing them educational scholarships.

Vision

With the support of local and international sponsor, we want to provide educational scholarship to the needy students of different community based schools in remote villages of Nepal. In this way, we hope to improve their communication skills & improve literacy rate in Nepal.

Why Scholarships for the students of community based schools in Nepal?

Community based schools in Nepal are generally financed by local people and get little assistance from government to run the school. The majority of the students studying the community based schools are from backward and poor family who cannot afford abundantly for their education. The parents with good income teach their children in private and boarding schools in Nepal. So, we focus to help the public run school with the HOPE project.

About the project site:

Solidarity Nepal initiated this project to improve literacy rates in Nepal and to support National Literacy Campaign (NLC) launched by Government of Nepal.

“Project Hope” means 1 Donor – 1 Child program to support more than 75,000 underprivileged, war victims and Dalit so called untouchable children’s in all 75 districts of Nepal.

Through the success of our pilot phase program conducted at Shree Dumshijhang Lower Secondary School – Dolakha, Shree Dhaulagiri Primary School – Baglung and Shree Indrachowk Primary School – Gulmi, we are confident to meet the campaign target as this program is highly recognized, participated and supported by medias, individual donors and local people. The “Hope Project’s” aim is to connect One Child with One Donor having a common motto “Changing Lives, One Child at a Time.”

Since the beginning of the project to till date more than 400 individual students were benefited by receiving Hope Scholarship. Please find the details of the schools, no of students and supporters of the project, total financial contribution in the HOPE PROJECT PROPOSAL.
