New Project 2017-18
Shree Ganga Milan Secondary School, Nepal
In February 2017 we completed our first school rebuilding project at the Shree Jateshwor Secondary School in the remote Nepalese village of Tulibesi.

We have now identified another school in a nearby area which is in need of post-earthquake rebuilding:

The Shree Ganga Milan Secondary School in Ghermu, Lamjung, Nepal.
We have already got the formal approval from the local government and education department for the school rebuilding: if want to support this urgent project please check out our Volunteer and Donate page.

About the School:
Shree Ganga Milan Secondary School provides education to 270 children, ranging from Grade 1 to 10. It has six blocks, one of which (with 8 classrooms) was partially destroyed by the earthquake. So we are planning to rebuild this block.

Location of the School:
Ghermu, Lamjung, Nepal.
 
Situation of the School:
 
Project Goals:
The school was partially destroyed during the earthquake in April 2015. Since then, the school has still been taking a risk by using the damaged classrooms, as they may collapse at any time. So we plan to rebuild this block and to build a new block instead.

In order for the local community to develop a sense of ownership and responsibility towards the school, we will only supply the building materials. The community will be responsible for transportation of materials and labour. Moreover, we also ask the school to recycle materials as much as possible, such as re-using the window frames and the doors of the previous building.

We encourage the local community to use local villagers and international volunteers. At the same time we will bring volunteers via our 'Light On Your Path Journey' Program.

In additional to physical support, we would like to build bonds between overseas volunteers and the local community.
