Our partnerships in Nepal provided educational outreach to adolescent girls and contributed to birthing centers and health facilities to promote the health of newborns, children, and mothers.
In 2015, All For One Foundation collaborated with CARE to help with disaster relief efforts in Nepal after the April 25, 2015, Gorkha 7.8 magnitude earthquake. It was the worst Nepali natural disaster since the 1934 earthquake that damaged many homes and flattened entire villages.
As reported by CARE, most girls in Nepal are forced to drop out of school at a very young age to work, do household chores, and have children. The SOAR initiative in Nepal helped 413 out-of-school adolescent girls at four different schools successfully acquire a fifth-grade education in just 11 months. 73% of the girls in the program were mainstreamed into formal schools and provided additional vocational skills.
- Of Nepal’s population of 29 million, 25% live in poverty, which makes Nepal one of the poorest countries in the world. Poverty in Nepal contributes to a high mortality rate.
- For every 1,000 children born in Nepal, 35 die before their fifth birthday due to lack of healthcare.
- In 2015, the Nepal Earthquake (Gorkha Earthquake) killed over 8,000 people, and thousands were injured.
- Over 500,000 homes were destroyed during the 2015 Nepal Earthquake.
