Program: Webinar about Rebuilding Nepal

9/28/15 –  Webinar about Room to Read’s Rebuilding Efforts in Nepal

Offered two times: October 5th @ 6:00 pm PDT / October 7th @ 7:30 am PDT.  Register by: September 30th.

Dear Sarah,

We are excited to invite you to a special webinar featuring our Founder, John Wood, sharing details from his recent trip to Nepal. As you know, the earthquakes that struck earlier this year devastated much of the country’s infrastructure, including its schools. The Nepalese people have started the long, hard road to recovery, but in many regions—especially in the poorer, remote areas where Room to Read works—communities lack the means to rebuild on their own.

During John’s trip, he met individuals throughout Nepal who are eager to overcome these challenges. He spoke with Girls’ Education Program participants who lost their homes, parents who hope to see their communities thrive, and the President of Nepal, Ram Baran Yadav, who wants to see Room to Read’s education model implemented throughout the country. Join this webinar to hear John’s first-hand account of our plans to help rebuild safe, effective learning environments in Nepal.

We look forward to connecting with you!

-The Room to Read Team

I left the site visits saddened by the desperate condition of the schools and more in awe than ever at the power of nature. I also felt inspired by the resilience of these communities. Rather than being incapacitated by the earthquake, parents had already cleared away the rubble and were eager to rebuild. The children were still putting on their school uniforms and walking miles to their temporary schools each day.
