Summary

Fulmati Mijar, a mother of three living in Nuwakot district in Nepal, learned carpentry and earthquake-resistant techniques for housing reconstruction after a magnitude 7.8 earthquake struck Nepal in 2015. The catastrophe destroyed Fulmati’s house and made her family more vulnerable, but it did not dent her resolve.
