Short Term Coordination: One of the primary things that needs to be done after a disaster of this scale is to coordinate the linkage of resources (volunteers, goods, money) to the proper distribution channels, so that aid reaches those in need. KG staff and volunteers are available to coordinate any relief work. If you are aware of anyone looking for such coordination support, please contact us.
Long Term Rebuilding: Many children have died or been wounded from collapsed buildings. Schools, in particular government schools which are resource-poor, have suffered heavy damages from Saturday's earthquake. KG will work to ensure that all of the 25 government schools in its network will be structurally sound so that students do not have to go to an unsafe school. In the next 10 days, we will have structural engineers/architects survey the damage in these schools. If the buildings are unsafe, we will work with the schools to find alternative teaching spaces. Later in the year, we will work with donors and government agencies to help construct safer classrooms and toilets for these students. If you would like to finance this effort to rebuild schools, contact us.
May 05, 2015: In reference to point "1. Short Term Coordination" above, please note that KG is no longer involved with co-ordination of relief efforts/ resources.
