Repairing devastation in Nepal
Kat regularly visits Nepal on climbing trips, but when she returned after the earthquake in 2015 she was shocked by the devastation she saw in the city of Pokhara near the Annapurna Mountain Range, particularly the ruins of the local school. She saw children sitting on rocks being taught under a roof held up by bamboo poles.
As a former educator, she couldn’t just look the other way. Instead she began to think of ways The Kat Florence Foundation could help to rebuild the school and provide the children of Pokhara with a safe place to learn.
