Rebuilding Nepal isn't only about homes. Jobs have been lost with children now missing out on an education due to lack of money for school fees. Just £170 a year (£14.20 a month) can pay for a child to remain safely in school learning the skills to help rebuild Nepal in the future.
Attending school doesn't only provide a chance of employment later in life; it gives a safe place for children to spend the day, whilst avoiding the threat of falling into child labour or being trafficked into India and beyond; two very real threats.
