Children are the Future: Strengthening Schools
Description: In 2015, Nepal was struck by a devastating M-7.8 earthquake, causing the collapse of more than 30,000 classrooms. Luckily, the earthquake struck on a day when schools were closed. Miyamoto earthquake structural engineers landed within three days to assist with the crisis. In the immediate aftermath, Miyamoto provided expert advice and quickly assessed whether buildings and homes were safe to re-enter. Two years later, we continue providing support to local entities. Find out how local communities and Miyamoto are assisting schools in this video. Then visit us at miyamotorelief.org.

Description: A team of Miyamoto engineers, led by Kit, himself, helped the Government of Mongolia begin to assess the seismic safety of schools in the capital city of Ulaanbaatar. Mongolia knew its aging schools are not likely designed to withstand catastrophic earthquakes, and large faults in the region are increasingly active. Join Kit on a video tour of this fascinating project and learn why we’re applauding Mongolia for doing the right thing. Is there hope for Mongolia and other countries around the world where seismic risk is high? Watch the video and find out, then visit www.miyamotointernational.com for more information.
