This short video was filmed last November during my visit to Rathankot. The children here are siting in their temporary school, since their usual one had been destroyed by the 2015 earthquakes. The Gayatri Fund, directed by Eva Holmberg-Tedert, provided the materials and training for the villagers to rebuild their school.
Specialised training was provided to learn how to build earthquake-resistant bricks. With this knowledge the village has built their new school but has also boosted its economy as they can offer this service for other villages.
The new school is now finished and was opened last March. We can't wait to go to visit in October and film there.
That's the way Eva likes to work: small scale projects with large impact.
Help us tell her story an join our crowdfunding campaign on the 4th of September 2017.
