In the six years since the devastating earthquake in Nepal on April 25, 2015, Nepal has renovated more than 7,000 schools. A combination of funding from the Nepali government, donor organizations, and school management committees has played a crucial role in rebuilding the schools in the 14 most devastated districts of the nation.

An important step in the country’s post-quake rehabilitation efforts is the reconstruction of the schools. The Nepali government set up the Central Level Project Implementation Unit (CLPIU) and the District Level Project Implementation Unit (DLPIU) to manage the restoration effort, using funding allocated from its own budget.

During the rehabilitation phase, because several schools were found to be in poor condition and were also rebuilt, we erected more schools than those that were damaged in the earthquake. We will finish renovating all of the schools by March 2024.

We reconstructed a total of 7,677 schools. School management committees have taken over 7,561 of these schools, and we are currently rebuilding 116 more. We have constructed 3,453 separate restrooms for boys and girls in the renovated schools, and we have provided basic drinking water facilities to 2,170 schools. At the district level, every newly built school complies with the standards.

Although the schools were rebuilt, they now meet high standards, but the management teams have faced practical difficulties. For instance, several schools have complained about a lack of classrooms and amenities that are accessible to people with disabilities.

Despite these difficulties, Nepal has made significant progress with the rehabilitation of its schools. For thousands of Nepali youngsters, the new schools will offer much-needed educational possibilities.
