The Santi School Project is providing new furniture and other classroom improvements for 150 students at Dhadkharka Primary School in Nepal. Students at the school have been sitting on the floor.

The work—which includes new desks, benches, white boards, carpet and seat cushions, as well as teaching materials—will be completed by the end of November. The total cost is estimated at $4,400.

The local community has agreed to contribute 20 percent of the total cost, a stipulation that is required of all of our projects. The Santi School Project and Mahesh Dahal, an alumnus of the school and a member of our board of directors, will raise the remaining amount.

Dhadkharka Primary School is located in the Kavre district of central Nepal, about a two and a half hour drive from Dolalghat, the nearest town. The classrooms were originally built in 1990 with support from the local government and village residents.

Two new classroom buildings were constructed recently because the threat of erosion from landslides made the original structure unsafe. However, the school lacked funds to replace its furniture, which had fallen apart after 20 years of use.
