MIT's Nepal Initiative

On April 25, 2015 a magnitude 7.8 earthquake struck Nepal, killing more than 9,000, injuring more than 23,000, and leaving tens of thousands lacking food, shelter, and water. Aftershocks continued in the following days and months, including a 7.3 magnitude quake on May 12 that killed or injured another 2,700.

This website is a report on our efforts to date to pair MIT expertise with reliable partners in Nepal, in order to help the country rebuild , it is also a statement of our commitment to foster a long-term relationship between MIT and the people of Nepal that we hope will prove mutually beneficial. Finally, it is a plea to support our efforts.
