Construction work at the various construction sites shows efficient progress in Nepal. The reconstruction of the Shree Setidevi Higher Secondary School in Thulosiruwari, which was destroyed completely in the earthquake of April 2015, and the new building of Shree Saraswati Mandir HSS in Mirlung/Tanahun District represent examples of this positive estimation.

The Cologne journalist Stefan Nestler has mostly been organizing the funding of the first of the two schools, which used to be called “Gerlinde and Ralf School” named after its former benefactors and famous mountaineers. He has been raising a high 5-digit Euro amount with his aid project “School up!”. A special thanks to the organizer himself and the donators.

Only at the end of September 2016, the first stone was laid for the new school building in the village about 80 km north-east of Kathmandu. Not even six months later, the second storey has been finished. The responsible construction supervision plans to have the building mostly finished by the start to the monsoon season and to be able to start exterior work and add the finishing touches during autumn 2017. The pupils will be able to move from the TLC with its corrugated sheet roof, where they have been learning for nearly two years, into the new building in a couple of weeks’ time. The costs of this reconstruction will amount to 200,000 Euro.

First steps toward a new school building

There is a new building project on the list of NHB, namely the construction of a new school in the district of Thanahun, about 150 km west of Kathmandu and not far from Pokhara. There will be a new school built in Mirlung for approximately 100,000 Euro. The project was started at the beginning of the year and meanwhile the construction site has been levelled, the groundwork prepared and the construction steel set in concrete towering into the blue sky. By the middle of the year most of the building will be completed.

122 boys and girls as well as their 12 teachers are looking forward to moving from an old mudbrick building which didn’t have any electric light and which was damaged by the earthquake into a new school building which will be a building with two storeys and four classrooms each. The 1100 village people also contributed financially and offered a local seed capital of nearly 2,000 Euro.

These and all our other projects can only be realized because of all your donations. Thanks for them. However, we will need further financial support and donations to continue our work and we would appreciate and be grateful for them. For more information regarding donations, please click HERE.
