Nepal - Reroof a school to withstand disasters

Despite being one of the most disaster-prone countries in the world, with earthquakes, landslides and floods, many schools in Nepal are using thin corrugated iron sheets for their roofing. These do not protect the school children from the elements nor does it provide a conducive learning environment. When the sun is beating down on the roof, the heat is let in easily leading to a rapid rise in temperature of up to 50 degrees Celcius. During the night or through the winter, any small amount of heat inside the buildings passes through and out the roof, causing temperatures to go down to -12 degree Celsius. Moreover, when there is heavy rain, the rain falls on the thin iron roof generating loud noises. Allow children to learn in a safe and conducive environment by providing a new roof for the school.
