Building Education serves to build safe schools in development countries to end the cycle of extreme poverty. Our Mission is 1,000 schools and we aim to transform rural villages into prosperous, dignified communities.
In April 2015, there was an 8.7 magnitude earthquake that struck Nepal, damaging 9,000 schools. Since the earthquake, only 4,000 schools have been rebuilt.
Approdximately 80% of Nepal is rural and suffers from multi-dimensional poverty with lack of resources to clean water, energy, education, food security, healthcare, and infrastructure. Without proper education, children become farmers at the age of 7 or 8, yet still suffe3r from food insecurity 6 months out of the year in rural Nepal. Girls get married at the age of 12 or 13, have babies at 14 without proper resources to sustain the family, thereby perpetuating the cycle of extreme poverty. For girls below 14 years old, an additional year of education can increase their future income by 25%.
We serve to build schools, install water systems, provide school scholarships, and create hydroponics systems to create a more sustainable village.
