Project Manager: Prof. Dr. Reinhard Stockmann

Contact Person: Prof. Dr. Reinhard Stockmann

Staff: Theresa Weippert


During the two massive earthquakes in Nepal in 2015, several thousand schools got destroyed. Together with the consortium partners Helvetas and Swiss Red Cross, Caritas Switzerland built and rehabilitated 36 schools in the hard to reach district of Sindhupalchok. The Project encompassed trainings regarding disaster risk reduction, operation and maintainance, WASH (water, sanitation, hygiene) and social interaction with drop out students. The final evaluation was based on three of the Core Humanitarian Standards (appropriateness and relevance, effectiveness and timeliness, preparedness and resilience) in order to draw lessons-learnt and give recommendations for further humanitarian outreaches. The evaluation utilized different methods: next to interviews with the leadership of the project, representatives of national authorities, team members, head of schools and mayors; Focus Group Discussions gave voice to school management committees and teachers. A comprehensive survey among hundreds of students, parents and teachers enabled a in-depth quantitative analysis.
