Education is a Priority.

Dear friends and supporters.

My apologies for this brief report and I do hope to have more detailed information for you by the next report. Our work continues with the construction of new schools and the upgrade and repair of many more. We treat education as a priority so that children and the young generation can grasp the rungs of a ladder to a better future. The earthquake of nearly 4 years ago destroyed many schools and damaged many more. It is now very apparent that some schools will have to be totally replaced as cracks and subsidence become more obvious. This is a tremendous burden on a poor country like Nepal and they will need our help and support for a long time yet.

Our first school project is now up and running. The school at Tarkegjang in Sindupalchowk has enabled the children to leave their temporary accommodation and move to the shiny new building with its wonderful views of the Himalayas. The school is at the heart of their community and a proud monument to their resileance and hard work.

A second school, the Shree Bajarhatti school for deaf and disabled children in Chitwan, has a lovely new teaching block with upgraded facilities. This school, although far from the earthquake epicentre, still suffered and buildings were unsafe for use. Many of the young students already have a difficult start to life but the new facilities have helped to improve their chances.

A similar story can be told about a current project. Kalika school in Nawalparasi suffered similar damage making the buildings unsafe for use. This is a very poor area and national funding support is very limited. Most children will have only a very limited future if they do not have a proper education. The new school buildings are now well underway and should be ready in a few months.

Thank you for all your support and I hope you will continue to help. Perhaps your friends would like to hear about us and what we are trying to achieve? Building new schools is very expensive and your help to spread the news would be very welcome. I know the world seems to be full of disasters these days but we can all help in some way.

Namaste
