Disaster Preparedness for Safer School Project, Nepal
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.

using schools as the centers and the students as the agents to promote a
culture of safety and disaster preparedness among the communities.
