Nepal Earthquake Update

The earthquakes in Nepal have devastated many of the remote villages where we have worked for the past eight years. Houses have collapsed. The schools we helped build no longer exist. Exactly how many people have died is unclear.

Now, in the face of unimaginable suffering, we dedicate ourselves to restoring lives. Our team in Kathmandu is working tirelessly to determine how to best use our resources in partnership with the affected communities.


Why donate?

Shanti Education Initiative Nepal is run entirely by board of volunteers. That means 100 percent of your donation goes directly to the community, to support our programs to train teachers and rebuild schools. We’re also a tax exempt nonprofit organization registered in Nepal, so all donations made are tax deductible.

Your contributions are critical to our success. Every little bit helps! You will be giving children in a poor rural village in Nepal the chance for an education and a better life.

You can make a donation online or by mail. PayPal is a secure and easy way to send money online. All you need is an email address and a bank account or credit card. PayPal charges a small processing fee (about 3 percent) for its online service.
