We are currently seeking funding for this project, please donate.
During the earthquake in 2015, Shree Kihun Basic School, Bhimad, Tanahun District was badly damaged and is in a state of disrepair. The existing buildings are made of mud and stone with a corrugated iron roof. The roof is not insulated, meaning that the rooms are hot in summer and cold in winter. A lack of full-height partition between rooms also makes them noisy making it hard for students to concentrate in lessons.
The village is located about 2 hours South of Pokhara and the school is a short walk from the nearest road. The village has approximately 300 households and the main source of income is from farming in the local fields. Around 5% of the community work overseas.
This Primary (Basic) School provides early years education to around 50 students from Pre-Primary (Early Childhood Development) to Grade 5 (9yrs). Three teachers are funded by the Nepali Government and two are funded by the local community. Despite the damage to the building the classrooms are still in use as there is no alternative building for use. We are seeking funds to demolish the existing, damaged buildings and replace them with a new, 5-room school building with an insulated, CGI roof. This will provide a spacious and safe learning environment for the students. This will also provide an opportunity to increase the enrolment of students at the school from the surrounding community.
With your help we can assist this community to improve the education provision to their young people. As well as receiving a new building we will work with the school and local community to review and help improve the quality of the education provided in the school.
