Nepal Earthquake Relief Two Years On

“I lived in this house most of my life, together with my husband and children, but it was damaged during the earthquake. Today I am building a new house! It is stronger and safer. I am no longer afraid of another earthquake.”

Swosthani, 14 years old
“This is where my house used to be, but it was destroyed during the earthquake. We still live in a temporary shelter, but a lot has changed in my village. World Vision rebuilt our school and we now have a children’s club that makes sure children in my community are safe. ”

“Family is important to me and being around them makes me happy. I have my mother and my sisters, we are very close. Maybe I have lost my house, but I still have my family.”

“We are no longer afraid of earthquakes. We learned what to do during a disaster from school and we are better prepared now. Our lives are normal again and I am not scared.”

Simran, 15 years old
“We came to know World Vision after the earthquake, they helped my community. I joined a children’s club and I am now the president. We have learned that we – children – are important and we want to share this with our community. Together, we help prevent child marriages and child labour.”

“My children’s club does a lot of interventions. We speak to girls engaged in child labour and tell them how important education is and that it’s better for them to go back to school. Many have returned and are studying again. All this started after the earthquake with World Vision’s help.”
