starting school construction works

03 June 2013


First fundraising completed successfully! Total value of collected funds: 15.000 USD.  Funds allowed us to make our dream come true and finally start building the school!

Endless gratitude to donors:
Main donor who decided to remain anonymous.
Raman & Irene
Hari Khatiwada
Ramesh Baral
and Voluntary work of the Community of Taplejung.
All the funds were invested into the school itself. Dozens or hundreds of hours of work of the foundation members including fundraising, development, management, designing and supervising are voluntary contribution and in their local reality are worth probably as much as another school.

Brief school description:
School altitude: 2200 meters above sea level.
Capacity: provides education for 150 primary level pupils per year.
The construction works are in progress, release planned in October 2013. Soon we will start collecting funds for the second school project.
Updated photographs of actual works coming soon.

more details :

as you can see, even googlemaps didn't bother to put details of this place. This is the most you can zoom to keep image clear. According to googlemaps (as for 2013) the altitude is 1700 meters above sea level but I think it is poor altitude data coverage as the Suketar Airport a few hours walk away (although never worked so far) is officially described as located at the altitude of 2900 and does look like subalpine level, while googlemaps is pointing 2450. I assume it is approximate 400 meters error over the entire area.
