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 Shree Shanti Niketan 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 Shree Shanti Niketan School in Kavre, 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 Shree Shanti Niketan School has been structurally analyzed by Miyamoto engineers and have determined it is a green-tagged building which did not sustain heavy damage in this earthquake. However, the weak structural system will likely collapse in the next earthquake.
