In the year since Nepal was hit by its worst earthquake in decades, much of the nation remains at a standstill. Many buildings partially maimed or entirely razed to the ground remain in ruins. Thousands of people still live under flimsy tarpaulin-covered shelters. Families still mourn irreplaceable loss. In rural villages, some Nepalis shoulder the heavy burden of rebuilding and move towards the future.
