LSERR

Background:

The devastating earthquakes that occurred in April and May 2015 in Nepal caused extensive damage and destruction to the majority of schools in Solukhumbu district. AHF, HTNZ, and HTUK are committed to assisting in the recovery and rebuilding of the education sector in the district – through the building of earthquake resilient schools, the repairing and retrofitting of damaged school buildings to meet earthquake safety standards structurally, vocational skills training, the training of teachers on quality, inclusive, child-centered education approaches (our regular, long-running program in the district) and on disaster preparedness.

Salient Feature:

Project Name: Lower Solukhumbu Education Rebuild and Recovery (LSERR) Project
Project Period: October 1st, 2015 to Dec 31st, 2017
Project Budget: NPR 53,000,000 (US$ 504,762)
Project area: Solukhumbu district, Nepal
Beneficiaries: School children, school teachers& local communities of the district
Implementing agency: REED Nepal
Donor agencies: Australian Himalayan Foundation (AHF), Himalayan Trust New
Zealand (HTNz) and Himalayan Trust UK (HTUK)
Number of New school construction: 8 (36 classrooms)
Number of school reconstruction: 19 (38 classrooms)

Goal: Children in the Lower Solukhumbu region have improved access to a quality and disaster-resilient education.
Objectives:

I. To ‘build back better’ schools that have been damaged by the earthquakes in Lower Solukhumbhu.
II. To build capacity for and assist in institutionalizing disaster preparedness and disaster safety concepts in schools.
III. To continue rights-based, inclusive quality education and ensure child-friendly learning environment in the schools.
IV. To develop related vocational skills among local people, particularly young adults of the district for rebuilding schools and for contributing to the recovery of the district post-earthquake.

Overall Principles:
REED Nepal agrees to follow the principles stated below that underpin the Donors aspirations for the LSERR project:

i. Focus on the most needed areas.
ii. Make sure that government funds are not substituted and do not overlap/duplicate other donors support.
iii. Open to working with others to come up with the best design and implementing techniques (balancing cost, safety against future earthquakes and local sourcing).
iv. Get clear benchmarking on costs.
v. Get economic of scale by working with other partners as possible.
vi. REED Nepal will be open for experience and knowledge sharing from other organizations.
vii. REED Nepal will develop high-quality operational management tools (eg. based on Gorkha Welfare Trust Model but customized for this project).
viii. Seek for community contribution during the construction period.
ix. Ensure work with trustworthy and well functioning SMCs and Head Teachers and other stakeholders.
x. As Donors, work together with REED Nepal as efficiently as possible with shared accounting and reporting so that the three donors’ interests are aligned and restricted funding to be reduced to the absolute minimum.

Expected output:

• 8 schools with 36 rooms are constructed.
• 12 schools of 19 EQ blocks having 38 classrooms are retrofitted.
