The Nepal Safer Schools Project (NSSP) is a Department for International Development (DFID) funded project seeking to increase the safety of approximately 250 vulnerable schools in Nepal and build the resilience of pupils, staff and the wider community to disasters. It is a consortium of Crown Agents, Save the Children and Arup international and NSET is implementing the one of the programme. The project is one part of DFID’s wider ‘Strengthening Disaster Resilience in Nepal” programme seeking to build the resilience of vulnerable people and reduce the impact of natural hazards in Nepal.
