STRUCTURAL ENGINEERING STUDENTS FOR HUMANITY (SESH)
2017 SESH TRIP
We are weeks away from our 2017 SESH trip and we are now accepting donations for the 2017 trip to Kathmandu, Nepal.
These funds will go towards the seismic rehabilitation of a school in Nepal. The school in need, The Patan Higher Secondary School, is the second oldest school in Nepal. It was heavily damaged in the 2015 earthquake, and was deemed unsafe to enter. In addition, the Patan Higher Secondary School is a place of history and a beloved monument to the community. Miyamoto Relief is determined to save children’s lives from future earthquakes and provide safe schools. The nonprofit, supported by SESH and donors, is partnering with the Government of Nepal’s Department of Education to repair and seismically strengthen the Patan Higher Secondary School.

DONATE TO OUR CAUSE
We Need Your Help! Each member of the travel group will be contributing about $1,700 of their own resources for a flight, lodging, food and immunizations. But, we need to raise an additional $10,000 in support, that will go towards the seismic rehabilitation of the Patan Higher Secondary School. Regardless of whether or not you are able to support at this time, we appreciate your time and consideration.

Structural Engineering Students for Humanity (SESH) is partnering with Miyamoto Relief for 14 days in Nepal during Summer 2017. This year SESH will be comprised of 15 Architectural Engineering students and one faculty advisor from California Polytechnic State University, San Luis Obispo with a collective mission to use engineering knowledge to help communities after disaster.
Nepal is a unique opportunity for students to incorporate learned engineering and construction practices outside of school in a place recently affected by disaster. Our goal is to connect with the Nepali people and communities through the built environment.
Together SESH will be working alongside Miyamoto Global Disaster Relief we will be working on various social impact projects. One of which is The Patan Higher Secondary School, Nepal. This school teaches children from ages 6 to 18 from the surrounding town villages who walk an hour to the grounds every day because they value their education. The Patan Higher Secondary School has been structurally analyzed and ultimately red-taggeded due to the heavy damages sustained from this earthquake, requiring the building to be evacuated. The school has unfortunately remained unoccupied since, resulting in students subjected to a lower quality of learning in temporary structures. With our help, along with the help of Miyamoto, we hope to provide these students a better learning environment that they are in desperate need of.
