School #3 Rehab to Begin Soon

In the area of Nepal where we work, often the greatest impact we can make in education comes not from building new schools from scratch, but repairing those that already exist, and providing books and classroom materials.

We’re getting ready to start repairs on Bhatte Primary School, which was originally built in 1984 and consists of two buildings, only one of which is used because the other is near collapse and must be destroyed. 109 students attend, in kindergarten through 5th grade. The school is located about 90 minutes from Ramche, the site of our first school.

We require that the local community contribute at least 25% of the total cost through donations of labor and materials. We’re also looking forward to collaborating on this project with Youth for Nepal.

NEW ONLINE INFO ABOUT VOLUNTEERING AT OUR SCHOOL

We’ve updated our web site recently with a new interactive brochure about volunteering in Nepal. It gives lots of great details about what to expect. (Thanks to David Stein for creating it.) We’re always trying to recruit volunteer teachers to spend time with us in Nepal.
