Nepal Earthquake Update

The earthquake in Nepal has devastated many of the remote villages where we have worked 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.

We pledge that your donation will reach the people who need it most. Please donate now to help us rebuild Nepal.

UPDATE MAY 11, 2015: So far, we’ve raised just over $8,000 of our of $100,000 goal. We have a $5,000 match during the month of May. All donations up to $5,000 will be matched by an anonymous donor.  Please donate today.

The Santi School Project is run entirely by volunteers. That means 100 percent of your donation goes directly to Nepal, to support our programs to train teachers and rebuild schools. We’re also a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization, so all donations are tax deductible.
