Project Update November 2018

Our final school building project in Dolkha, Nepal is in it’s final stage. Here are few photos of the construction work. While we are working towards completion of the building work, challenges such as inflation, unofficial blockade in Nepal and weather , landslide, transportation means, our estimated budget (£30,535) has slightly increased by £7000(estimate).

We need to raise this fund to complete the building so it can be  used as soon as possible . We’ve planned few events this year and early 2019 to raise this much needs funds and need your help.

It is a great to see a progress in supporting the school building work in Nepal. I have been informed by our partner Pahar Trust that the library building work in Manbu, Gorkha is in its final stages and should be opening soon.

MoU for the other two projects Shree Gosainkunda Secondary School-Rasuwa and Rajeshwori H S School-Sindhupalchowk have already been signed and foundation work should start soon. We are targeting the completion of the buildings before the monsoon season starts in Nepal.

New November 2016 Update

Nepal Earthquake relief program update

Dear all, work on the NSA phase II program in the rebuilding of the schools is on-going on the selected projects with the help of our charity partner The Pahar Trust.

Because of the situation in Nepal it was important to re-estimate the new requirements of the building work and survey forms have been collected and submitted to the Pahar Trust team for review and evaluation. The next stage is a finalization of the work required and design of the plan in co-operation with the School management & local government bodies.

Out of many request for help we received from Nepal, the NSA board has decided to support the below 3 schools initially. Further proposals will be reviewed and supported as required.

  1. Shree Gosainkunda Secondary School-Rasuwa
  2. Rajeshwori H S School-Sindhupalchowk
  3. Siddhartha Banasthali L S School, Manbu, Gorkha.
  4. Dolakha Suspa Kshemawoti Higher Secondary School(project with support from RBG, Edinburgh)
