The Santi School Project has years of valuable experience reaching deep into the mountainous corners of Nepal, helping to shape lives for the better. This project will support rebuilding of schools and classrooms damaged or destroyed in the earthquake, both in villages where we have long-lasting partnerships as well as villages that need to restore their schools after the earthquake. 100% of funds we receive will be spent in Nepal.
The earthquake devastated many of the remote villages in Nepal where we have worked these past eight years: Ramche, Lakuri, Nallu, Nawalpur and southern Lalitpur have significant damage or have been destroyed.
This project will provide direct funds to support the rebuilding or renovation of schools in Nepal, based on need and more than a decade of experience working in remote villages in Nepal. The first rebuilding project supported by the Santi School Project is Kshamawati Higher Secondary School. The school has around 450 students from K-12, with the majority being from the disadvantaged Thami community. As the oldest government school in Dolakha district, all but 2 of its 28 rooms were destroyed.
Our bonds with these remote communities are strong. We have trained their teachers, shared a smile with their children, and had tea with their parents. The Santi School Project is committed to restoring educational opportunities for children in rural villages in Nepal to enable those children to have the brightest future possible. Our vision for Nepal is a country where every child is educated and who one day will contribute to its growth.
