The AKM Foundation allocates its scholarship fund ($1000.00) of 2015 towards education sector of earthquake victims in Nepal
The Abi Kattel Memorial Foundation is deeply saddened by the recent major earthquakes in Nepal. The Foundation extends its condolences to the families of the deceased during the catastrophic earthquakes as well as the deepest sympathies and prayers to those who survived, but are living in dire conditions. The country needs help to rebound, and this process will take many years.
Nepal will rebound, as its people are a strong and resilient group. The Foundation intends to help in any way it possibly can.
Two powerful, devastating earthquakes shook the country of Nepal to its core on April 25 and again on May 12, 2015. Thousands of people lost their lives, but even more tens and hundreds of thousands of people lost their homes, their livelihoods, their places of worship, and their places of education.
We can’t control nature. We can, however, choose to rebuild. Seeing families forced to sleep outside, in fields, huddled together, without any knowledge of what their next steps are, is scary. But, with every tragedy comes hope. And with hope, nothing is impossible.
Education is the foundation for a people and their success. Nowhere is this more true than in Nepal, a country with a thirst for knowledge but a lack of infrastructure. The earthquakes destroyed many schools, university buildings, and other educational buildings. While there are established donation links intended to help with medical survival, necessary items, and food, there aren’t many that are focused on the intangible aspect of an education.
The Abi Kattel Memorial Foundation (Foundation) intends to put forth full effort to raise funds to help rebuild the educational sector in Nepal. Specifically, the Foundation will utilize funds to help reestablish educational institution(s) that are damaged and need support to revive. Because of immediate need for support in educational sector the Foundation has decided to move its academic scholarship fund ($1000.00) for this year toward supporting education sector in Nepal. Thus, applications will not be accepted this year for the Academic Schlorship.
