I have seen so few projects meet my definition of success, which includes not only that a project was accomplished but that it did so while respecting the dignity of everyone involved. It was an honor to do my part to help ensure his vision became a reality.
Sunita, a student in the tenth grade at Shree Shanti school in Nepal, says thinking about the Nepal earthquake makes her sad, but at least it "did not completely destroy my school and we can still continue our studies.” Many students continue studying in schools that may not withstand another stong jolt.
This is a worldwide problem.
My name is Charles and I live in Simon Pele, and go to school here. We were learning under a sheet metal roof. It was hot and prevented us from learning well. The young people in the repaired school are learning better, better supported and they will be better trained.
Four children from our school passed away during the earthquake. Now I want to have strong classrooms for my students to study in.
