How we deliver earthquake resilience infrastructure?

In  association with leading architectural firms in Australia (COX Architecture and David Francis Architecture), and together with leading engineering firm TTW, REACH for Nepal is delivering a construction program of earthquake resilient classrooms and health clinics in remote parts of Nepal.

Recent Case Studies

Earthquake Resilient Classrooms

Our first earthquake resilient designed project was delivered in March 2023 with the build of 2 classrooms at the Shree Amar Jyoti Primary school in Firfire Tanahun. 

Earthquake Resilient Health Clinic

Our first earthquake resilient health clinic planned for delivery in late 2024 is not only safer and more sustainable, lasting for generations to come, but also adaptable to cater for the diverse health needs of remote communities.

''Impact Stories

“Thank you for building much needed infrastructure at our School. The classrooms we had were leaking and walls cracking which made it unsafe for kids to be in the classrooms. The condition also meant the parents from the school were not trusting the management committee to run the school infrastructure. Now that we have brand new classroom sets, its more appealing and provides us the platform to go out to the village and garner more students from the region and not have them walk to another village to get education. We are very happy. This provides hope for the entire village. Thank you REACH for Nepal for your investment in our village.” 

School Chairmen, Shree Amar Jyoti School, Firfire Tanahun.

“Children in our communities come from far and away to learn and learning is essential for the opportunity to build a better life and support their family. After the earthquake, children and teachers did not feel safe to come to school and they were exposed to the elements. The work of REACH for Nepal has given us hope and a future for our children.”
