Latest School Reconstruction Halfway Complete

We got off to a running start this year. Construction of 4 new classrooms for the Bhatte Primary School, the first of our 2011 reconstruction projects, actually began last December. Conditions at the school were so bad that teachers often held classes outside; holes in the roof made rooms unusable during the rainy season.

This project is a partnership with Youth for Nepal and the villagers of Bhatte, who are contributing nearly 25% of the total construction cost. Villagers dismantled the old building, re-used some of the stone in the new building and a local farmer also has donated stone from his fields.

The new school building should be finished in about 4 weeks.

The village of Bhatte is about a 90 minute walk from our first school, in Ramche, in the mountains of Nepal.

Women are no strangers to construction work.
