BHAKTAPUR, NEPAL - JULY 20: A young boy crosses a square where all the houses collapsed or were destroyed by the earthquake that hit the country on his way to his school in Bhaktapur, Nepal on July 20, 2015. Months after the earthquake, rebuilding is still far from starting. Bhaktapur is one of the historic cities situated in the Kathmandu Valley. The city was heavily affected by the earthquake and hundreds of families lost everything, but life is returning to normality. According to UNICEF, more than 25,000 classrooms in more than 8,000 schools were damaged or destroyed during the earthquake, and thousands of children are still attending schools in temporary learning centres.
