  • Kathmandu, Nepal: Education & Reconstruction in the Himalayas
    10-19-2018 | 10 a.m. - 10:50 a.m. | Massey Boardroom

    Kathmandu, Nepal sits in a valley surrounded by the Himalayan Mountains and its history spans several thousand years, rich with ancient Buddhist and Hindu culture. In 2015, a massive 8.1 earthquake split into the valley and killed over 9,000 people, leaving homes, schools, and infrastructure in crumbles. With the help of the Lumos Award, Sam Osborn joined an ongoing effort to help rebuild schools and support the teaching staff of schools that were affected the most by the earthquake. Join us as Sam speaks about his 5 months spent teaching English, joining the reconstruction effort, and the importance of education in Nepal, the roof of the world.
