Our project coordinator, Lila Jung Gurung, has conducted an evaluation of our first academic year:

• All 25 of our first-grade students passed the government’s final exam in March • Student attendance reached 91% between January and March • Teachers have requested we add a 4th teacher since we added a Grade 2 class • Parents are satisfied with their children’s reading, writing and speaking skills


The government in Nepal has awarded our school with an annual stipend, based on our enrollment, of about $1,200 -- about the cost of one teacher salary for a year. This support signals the government’s intention to fully fund all of our teachers’ salaries next year.

Thanks to all of you for helping to make it possible!
