The Learning Center (TLC)

Help the Government of Nepal with the reconstruction by building low cost houses (using prefab and locally available material) for the victims of the earthquake of 2015

About the Project

The Learning Center (TLC) founded in 2006 is a not for profit organization and has been active in the field of education and health for the last 10 years. And when the devastating earthquake of 7.8 Richter struck the country in April 2015, TLC sent its team to Dukuchhap in Lalitpur and Deurali in Dhading for relief work.

During the emergency phase, TLC provided immediate relief items to the most vulnerable households in very remote areas. As of 31st December 2015, TLC has reached over 60,000 individuals, targeting the worst earthquake-affected households. TLC and its local implementing partners have been working in shelter, WASH, livelihoods and food security, early recovery, coordination, and Camp Coordination and Management.
TLC’s areas of intervention have included remote areas that do not have access to roads and helicopters are the only option of transporting materials. While there have been obvious logistic challenges, TLC teams have managed to use local resources, such as porters and tractors to transport items, in highly remotes areas of all its Districts of operation.

Social Impact

This project will resettle the internally displaced persons affected by the earthquake. In the process of reconstruction, the local will receive employment through Cash for Work (CFW) program which will train the local and provide employment in the reconstruction of houses.
