Supporting teenage girls after the Nepal earthquake

When Samjhana's school reopened one month after the earthquake, nothing was the same. With a partner organization we have worked to rebuild it with even better hygiene facilities than before, encouraging girls to stay in school for longer.

Building Back Stronger. One year from the Nepal quake

On 25th April 2015 a massive earthquake struck Nepal. Oxfam was one of the international non-government organizations to provide life-preserving aid to almost half a million people. Since then we have been supporting recovery efforts in seven of the most affected districts.

Building back right

As recovery in Nepal begins after the earthquake that struck in April 2015, there is an opportunity to ensure that reconstruction and resettlement policies and programmes are inclusive of women and those who are landless.

Six months on from Nepal earthquake, delays in policy and fuel crisis holding up recovery efforts

Relief for the 8 million people affected by the huge Nepal earthquake six months ago is still being disrupted by delays in reinstating the government’s National Reconstruction Agency, says Oxfam. An on-going fuel crisis is adding to the problems, putting at risk the health and safety of thousands of people as winter approaches. More than 8,600 people were killed and half a million houses destroyed by the quake.
