About ISAK's Project Nepal

The earthquake in Nepal that occurred on the 25th of April, 2015; measured 7.9 on the Richter Scale, shook the nation and spread chaos throughout. Almost 10,000 lives were taken, and nearly three times more people were injured. 3 years after this tragedy, tens of thousands are still left homeless, devastated and without enough assistance, especially in the rural areas of Nepal.

Just two days after this calamity, students of ISAK (currently UWC ISAK Japan) decided to establish a non-profit organisation aimed help the victims and families whose lives have been put into turmoil because of the earthquake.

“When I heard the news from my friend, I couldn’t help worrying; for a day or two, that was all I did. Then, I thought of how we could help; when I talked with the other Nepali students, they were of the same mindset and we started our project.” - Karma (Nepal, 2016 Alumni)

Our Mission
“To empower rural communities through health and educational opportunity for the sustainable development of post-earthquake Nepal.”

Past Accomplishments
Project Nepal is one of UWC ISAK Japan’s longest running students led projects and has worked to have multiple projects become successful. Projects Nepal’s accomplishments include:

- Funding 13 temporary schools to be rebuilt
- Building a health post in Phulphingkatti, Sindhupalchok
- Work with Phulping EQ Relief Project to provide emergency medicine at medical camps
- Setting up a medical camp in the Tsum valley for two weeks that provided medical care and acupuncture
- Forming a partnership with Toy-Factory International to send Dr. Car (a mobile medical unit) to Nepal

We strongly believe to be able to accomplish our goals, we need to show transparency. Therefore we plan to keep everyone involved with ISAK’s ProjectNEPAL updated with the progress and the amount of funds we raise and use through our website.

We hope all the people who will read this message will galvanise themselves for this cause, and ultimately cause major change both in the lives of the people of Nepal and in the country itself.

Dear supporters and donors of UWC ISAK's Project NEPAL,
We are glad to announce our next project.

Project Nepal hopes to holistically support a school by renovating the infrastructure, providing a stable source of water, and finally making the school a community center for any other natural disaster that may occur. As a result of the concept of revival and rebuilding in this project, we decided to name this project Project Lotus.

Project Lotus aligns with and supports our project mission statement to "empower rural communities through health and educational opportunity for the sustainable development of post-earthquake Nepal.”

Project Nepal has formed a new partnership with the NGO Pahar Trust, which has experience in reconstructing and renovating over 100 school buildings in Nepal. Together Project Nepal and Pahar Trust will collaborate on the rebuilding of Kihyun Primary School.

The specific goals in renovating the school are the following:
1) Provide Kihyun Primary School with safe and conducive spaces for learning
2) Make sure the school has proper plumbing, so that students do not have to worry about access to water when they are learning
3) Keep Kihyun running in the long term by making sure teachers are properly trained and the school is well furnished
4) Set up Kihyun Primary School as an emergency shelter in case of another natural disaster in Nepal.

Dear Donors and Supporters,

Today, we are proud to announce a new and a major project! We are collaborating with ToyFactory International to bring Dr. Car to southern Terai plains of Nepal.

Many health posts in Nepal were destroyed and people are not getting the support they need. This is why we decided to work on this project to bring health care to people.

Toy Factory and our group are already working on getting grants from foundations and government agencies in Japan. However, since the implementation of Dr. Car costs money, we are looking for further support from our donors and supporters.

We have launched another campaign in GoFundMe to highlight this cause. PLEASE help bring quality medical care to Nepal by donating through the link below. Also, sharing it with your family and friends would be greatly appreciated!

The team is thrilled and is very much honored to receive this award. We would like to extend our deepest gratitude to the Karuizawa Rotary Club for their support and the warm welcome.
