Nepal is ranked the eleventh most at risk country with regard to earthquakes,
and the thirtieth with respect to floods. The communities also suffered from
other disasters such as fires, windstorm, thunderstorms and landslides.

Children to Children and Children to Adult (C to C and C to A) approaches,
using schools as the centers and the students as the agents to promote a
culture of safety and disaster preparedness among the communities.
