For the latest updates from Nepal incuding our school rebuild at Dhandakharka, please follow our blog
Our mission statement:-
“All children have the right to a decent education. We are helping children from disadvantaged communities in rural Nepal to realise their full potential”
How are we helping?
Our Major Project following last year’s earthquake is to rebuild Dhandakharka School
Dandakharka is by far the most disadvantaged of the local communities. It is composed of a very different tribal group experiencing a much greater degree of poverty. School attendance and literacy rates are lower , as low as 50%. The school was completely flattened by the earthquake and Kasin has raised £32,000 to build a new school. The first block of 6 classrooms is almost complete and we are now fundraising to start the second block. For the latest updates see our blog
This school is extremely remote and the local community don’t have any financial resources of their own. We hope to complete this before the summer monsoon.
