Nepal Project Update


Durga Aran, our Nepal director has recently returned from a very busy season in our project area.    Our early childhood centres and school classrooms are progressing extremely well, even as some are still transitioning out of temporary learning centres that they have been in since the 2015 earthquake.  

We had a large number of volunteers from all corners of the world helping to build two new earthbag classrooms at Dyali school, which are now nearly complete.   A huge THANK YOU again to Court Construction of Auckland, New Zealand, who raised over NZ$70,000 to fund these classrooms, and who returned to Nepal for the third time to help build also.   

We would also like to thank our gold sponsors Nebulite and The Empowerment Project, and our silver sponsors Royale Kitchens and Black Steel Mobile for their generous support.

We were lucky to have several international teaching volunteers with us this season, who provided some amazing training to the local teachers on classroom management, use of resources, encouraging oral language and introducing new games and songs.  We are very grateful for their help.
