Project implementation

In November 2019, a group of Acronis employees went on a trek to Nepal to start school construction in Rajipur Chaumala. Volunteers for the project were chosen for their diverse backgrounds and geographies, matching Acronis’ global standing.

The team broke ground and started the construction process, which will be completed by the community. All the travel expenses are paid by Acronis, not taken from donations.

The school still needs funding and we hope to receive donations: whether monetary contribution or gifts in kind. The school needs furniture, stationery, textbooks, computers, uniforms, etc. and we hope you will contribute generously.
