UNESCO – Nepal

The United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization was created to address social, economic and environmental aspects of development and to create peace in the international community through effective policies. Known as an “intellectual” agency, UNESCO prides itself on innovation in scientific cooperation in the face of natural disasters and understanding of cultural diversity. The organization also highlights the importance of education and its requirement for human rights development. UNESCO funds and creates projects in order to fulfill their aims for eradicating poverty and increasing intergovernmental conversation. They have developed a series of goals called Millennium Development Goals which encompass the Organization’s eight goals to improve development across the world.  Here UNESCO will specifically be working on the nation of Nepal, a developing country that suffered a major earthquake and aftershock earthquake in April and May of 2015.
