An earthquake with an estimated magnitude of 7.8 struck Nepal near the capital of Kathmandu on 25 April, 2015. Thousands of people lost their lives across the region and many more were injured. 39 of 75 districts of Nepal were reported to be affected by the earthquake.
The Nepal earthquake left almost a million children without classrooms, calling for urgent action to repair damaged schools and set up temporary learning spaces. For a young person in Nepal, access to quality education, healthcare and job opportunities is tough enough. But rebuilding after an earthquake when family members have been killed or injured, homes have been turned to rubble, and schools and hospitals have been destroyed, called for efforts on an epic scale.
