Kathmandu, Feb.2 (ANI): The European Union (EU) and the United Nations Children’s Fund (UNICEF) have joined hands to launch a four million Euro project to help Nepal restore education for one million children in nine districts affected by the devastating earthquakes last year.
The project will include construction of 650 transitional learning centres, provision of essential learning materials in all newly established centres in collaboration with the Department of Education and the concerned district administrations and NGOs, the EU and UNICEF, reports The Himalayan Times.
The project will be launched in nine districts that were badly hit by the last year earthquake.
Thousands of buildings including schools were damaged in western, central and eastern districts of Nepal in the temblors that killed around 9,000 people last year.
UNICEF has been working very closely with the government and partners to minimize the disruption to schooling in the earthquake affected districts.(ANI)
