Mahenro Daya Lower Secondary School

Headmaster: Kamal Thapa Magar

mahen1 Mahenro Daya Lower Secondary School has 364 pupils aged 3 to 16 years. There is a mixture of new and old buildings here but the main problem is no water supply. This means that children have to carry drinking water to school and some of them have to walk for up to 2 hours. Other children have to carry younger sibling’s part of the way, so carrying water is very difficult. A new toilet has been built but cannot be used as there is no water. We saw children disappearing into the neighbouring trees. The science teacher here said that he has no science equipment with which to teach the children even basic science.

The new classroom provided by Friuli Mandi being used even before completion

We had yet another warm and prolonged welcome from this school, which has made much progress in the last three years, thanks to Massimo and the Government.

There is a new classroom block which is almost finished and already being used and another block about to be started of which Trustee Arthur Benbow laid the first stone. There is also now water and toilets thanks to Massimo.

There are 350 children attending the school and the headmaster’s name is Kamal Bakadur Thapa. There are 14 teachers and four of them attended Harihar’s training. They all thought the training was fantastic and were excited about using the ideas in their classrooms where there was already evidence of this. As the training was only for primary teachers, the secondary teachers at the school were also asking for training.

An award winning library

There are 7 computers in the school and a library and resource room funded by the Government and the community which has already won an award. The Science teacher would love some equipment with which to teach and English and Grammar books were needed for the older children.
