Villagers Hold Inauguration Ceremony for School

More than 200 residents of Ramche attended an inauguration ceremony for Shree Santi Primary School in late December 2008, during a visit by Santi School Project president Christopher Heun.

The crowd included local politicians, education officials, and principals from the other schools in Ramche VDC, the administrative area that includes the village where our school is located. The Santi School Project gave each of the principals a box of books and materials to show our support.

Clearly, the community supports our school. In fact, many parents even believe the instruction is superior to that at government schools; some have gone so far as to withdraw their children from a government school and enroll them at our school. We plan to address this discrepancy in the coming months.

We would like to thank all of our donors for helping to make our success possible.
