July 12, 2015 – Help Support Education in Nepal

Posted by Tina Newman on July 15, 2015  /   Posted in Blog, News

Visible Good has been engaged in talks with World Education, a Boston-based organization That “…improves the quality of life through education for half a million children and adults in 22 countries…” and is one of UNICEF’s largest partners for education in Nepal.  Our talks center on RDM units for use as replacement schools for the thousands of buildings destroyed or damaged by the devastating earthquake in April and the follow-on tremors.  The World Bank has stated that the recovery in Nepal is likely to take ten years.  With 40+ year’s experience in Nepal, World Ed is taking the long view and Visible Good is happy to support their efforts.  We are currently seeking funding to support the assembly of a dedicated inventory for this purpose.  If interested in providing financial support for this effort, please contact us at tina@visible-good.com.
