Naved-e-Seher: A new Dawn for a hope filled Future for J&K (Jammu & Kashmir School Recovery Program)

 
 

Organization : United Way of India

 
 

Location : Jammu and Kashmir

 
 

Project Description

The unprecedented flooding of Jammu & Kashmir in September 2014 left in its wake a trail of destruction that the state is still recovering from. According to the Education Department of Jammu & Kashmir, 1000 schools were affected across the state. Five years since, many school buildings still await restoration and classes continue to be held in buildings rendered unsafe by the damage caused by floods. While material destruction has had obvious consequences, disasters such as the Kashmir floods also affect the children’s psyche deeply, leaving behind a trail of invisible but powerful trauma. It is to cater to these needs that United Way India have partnered with SEEDS India to reach out to the flood affected schools in the valley. The objective of this partnership is to restore twenty-six classrooms across three schools in Pulwama district of Jammu & Kashmir and to work towards capacity building of its five hundred students.
