giving hope to students

giving help to teachers

giving shelter to a few


May 2014

Earlier this year the head teacher of the Shree Mahendrodaya Secondary School in the Gajuri district approached Ashraya Nepal in Kathmandu and asked for help with their plans to develop and improve their facilities. In particular as lack of toilet facilities is a serious deterrent to many girls attending an improvement in this area would lead to better attendance. A group from South Devon College has expressed an interest in going to help with this. Secondly and more ambitious they have plans to build a hostel to accommodate at least one hundred of the smaller children. The school serves a community scattered across the surrounding hills and many children have a three to four hour walk to get to school every day. The staff at the school are very committed and there is a structured, detailed plan for the future as a proposal to improve the teaching and learning activities.

With local contribution of labour the above projects can be achieved at a cost of approximately 20 000.
