Project will add 4 classrooms at a village school in Nepal, so the children can get education up to secondary level at their village. Currently, they walk for more than 4 hours to go to another school


Rawal Danda School in Dhading District, Nepal, has 381 children studying between pre-school and 8th grade. The school runs on a limited infrastructure, because of the lack of classrooms the school has put students of grade 2nd and 3rd into a one room.Once they complete their 8th grade, they have to walk further up to 4 hours or more (for a round trip) to go to a secondary school. Naturally, many drop out. In general, less than 50% of secondary school age children enroll into a school in Nepal.


In partnership with high school students in Kathmandu, Sarvodaya is running a campaign to add four classrooms at Rawal Danda School. The students will contribute their labor. The community members will also contribute 50% of the cost required.

Long-Term Impact

Once completed, the school will enable children in the vicinity to study at their own local school saving them 4 hours of daily walk. It will enhance educational level of the community, which will lead to better health & economy of the community.
