During his visit in July 2015, close to the old, but destroyed school building, the school committee showed Manfred Lindner a shell of an unfinished building, whose construction hadn’t been continued due to the lack of financial means on the part of the Nepali government. Manfred Lindner had the idea of buying the unfinished governmental college and finishing the building to turn it in a school with ten classrooms.

At the beginning of 2016, as soon as the municipality of Sangachok had got the official allowance to take over the unfinished shell as well as a construction engineer had inspected it and given the green light, construction workers could start continuing working on the unfinished building and turning it into a school. Walls were set up and the area in front of the school building was also fixed. Doors and windows were installed and so the school is ready for 450 pupils of grades 8 – 12. The pupils will move in in August 2016 and so their time in provisional housing made of bamboo will end.

The reconstruction of the destroyed school on the former premises is planned for 2017.
