Nepal is vulnerable to large earthquakes and is one of the poorest countries in the world. Which makes procuring food, clothing and basic shelter the most pressing issues for most citizens. Our challenge is to bring seismic resilience to as many buildings as possible by building awareness and implementation strategies.
The orphanage that Kids of Kathmandu supports is our case study to raise awareness of seismic retrofitting of existing building stock and how it will create a safer built environment for the people of Nepal. Our implementation plan will structure safety for more buildings by creating awareness and opportunity.
