A Mile for Nepal

On April 25, 2015, a 7.8 magnitude earthquake struck Nepal. As most of us know, thousands of Nepalis have died due to this and the catastrophic turn of events that have followed. Nepal is a breathtakingly beautiful country famous for its mountains (Mt. Everest in particular), its rich history, cultural diversity and its resilient people. However, Nepal is also one of the poorest nations in the world.Majority of the population lives below the poverty line and without outside help, the country will struggle to rebuild. At UCI, we want to make a sustainable impact. Our goal is to sponsor a mile of peace flags (2,640 | each flag is a $10 donation) and put all the funds to build a school in Nepal.
