Dharma Drum Mountain Social Welfare & Charity Foundation (DDMSWCF) Funds the Building of Temporary Learning Center in Nepal to Help Schools Cope with Monsoon Season

In order to help displaced teachers and pupils affected by the earthquake in Nepal continue with school safely before the upcoming rainy season, DDMSWCF will set up 100 units of Temporary Learning Center (TLC) in the worst-hit mountain regions by working with the local government and NGOs. More than a temporary shelter for local residents, the TLC can also serve their education and care needs.

DDMSWCF indicated that the worst-hit areas are mainly in the mountains. More than 3.5 million people have lost their homes, and the heavy rain makes the reconstruction even more difficult. The central and northern parts of Dhading region need volunteers and funds as there are still more than 264 schools without classrooms. While supporting the rebuilding of schools near Katmandu, DDMSWCF will also assist this devastated region to establish TLC to help school children make it through the rainy season.
