This winter we'll be building new classrooms at three different schools, and installing drinking water systems at two of them. Overall, we'll be improving conditions for nearly 700 students in rural Nepal.
One of those schools is Kali Devi Higher Secondary School of Pyutar, Lalitpur. Built in 1962, the school has 20 teachers and staff serving more than 360 students. The school is around 50 kilometers away from Kathmandu.
The government's District Education Office provided funds to construct a four-room building to accomodate overcrowding, but the funds were only sufficient to complete the frame of the building.
We are helping the school complete at least two rooms so that classes can begin in April 2013, the start of the next school year. The school will bear a quarter of the estimated cost of the project.
