We are excited to let you know that the school in Nepal have reopened after being closed for several months due to COVID-19. The school you helped build in Rajipur is complete and 122 students (69 boys and 53 girls) are now attending classes! Five teachers are teaching five grade levels in the school.
We couldn’t have done this without your donation and support!
Like all our schools, the village of Rajipur was empowered to lead this project. The local community contributed land, local materials and more than 1,769 volunteer working days. The women served side-by-side with men on the worksite, an especially important achievement in Nepal, where women are often denied the same opportunities as men.
