Miyamoto International is providing in-kind engineering services to repair and retrofit the Shree Shiladevi Madhyamik Vidhyalaya school in Nepal. This public school was red tagged because of structural damage in a column that ruptured in the April and May 2015 earthquakes that devastated Nepal. This is one of 495 schools in Nuwakot, one of the worst earthquake-affected districts in Nepal. The nonprofit Miyamoto Global Disaster Relief stepped in to help. This work is being done in partnership with the Government of Nepal’s Department of Education and Round Table, another charitable organization. Miyamoto International analyzed and engineered a reinforced concrete shear wall retrofit system to strengthen the building to meet international standards for life-safety in schools. More than 300 students attend the school, which serves 10 grade levels.
