Dartmouth Mobilizes Resources for Nepal Aid

April 27, 2015  

In an article for Dartmouth Now, Kenneth Bauer, program manager of human development initiatives at the Dickey Center, stressed the importance of working with established humanitarian organizations with a presence in Nepal as a way to help Nepal following a devastating earthquake and ongoing aftershocks. Bauer and others are concerned that relief efforts reach the remote villages cut off from Kathmandu.

“Traveling in Nepal for 26 years now, there has always been this dichotomy between Kathmandu, the capital, and the rest of Nepal,” Bauer says to Dartmouth Now. “One of the things we’re very concerned about and trying to think strategically about is how it’s helpful to get to villages and rural communities, and what does their future look like in terms of rebuilding.”

The community is invited to a 6 p.m. meeting in Silsby Hall, room 317, to continue discussion of how the College community can help with relief efforts in Nepal.
