Young students at a school in flood-prone western Nepal learn how to stay safe in the event of disaster.

We're working with Nepal Red Cross Society to teach kids how to prepare and respond to emergencies — and educate others with their new skills. As part of their curriculum, children participate in hands-on drills and first aid training, and learn about safety precautions through games, art projects and drama competitions.
