Juni 2017 – Der Schulalltag ist eingezogen

Mittlerweile ist der Schulalltag eingezogen. Zu täglichen Schulbeginn steht, wie in Nepal üblich, der „Frühsport“ auf dem Stundenplan. Die einzelnen Räume sind mit Leben erfüllt. Dies gilt sowohl für die Kleinsten, die neben dem Lernen auch das Spielen genießen können und auf den täglichen schulunterricht vorbereitet werden.. Dank großzügiger Unterstützung des Rotary-Club aus Patan steht auch ein gut ausgestatteter Computerraum zur Verfügung.

2016 - From blue to yellow

The school in Sukute is the first school to be renovated. The pillars were fortified and the damaged walls were repaired, which meant an expenditure of about 30,000 Euro. The lessons could already be started at the end of 2016 by the special support of the family foundation of Philipp from Neuburg. According to the new building regulations of the Nepali government we had to change our white and blue into the new school colours of yellow and red. The (re)inauguration will take place in February 2017.

Finally some progress in reconstruction!

Certainly, donators as well as the members of NHB themselves have long waited for some pictures from Nepal. Despite the available donations, the Nepali government prevented the reconstruction for more than a year as they took 13 months to make new governmental building regulations. In these 13 months of standstill no public nor private building could be repaired nor reconstructed. What a sign of inability and indifference on part of the government! And when finally the green light was set for reconstruction, the monsoon started – this year with especially heavy rain – and the construction work had to be stopped again.

The first 50,000€ of donations could be transferred for the reconstruction of the schools in Sukute and Kadambas. The NHB was generously supported by the foundation of the company VPI from Neuburg/Danube. Reconstruction work should be finished by the beginning of 2017, so that pupils in Sukute will be able to move into their new school building. In Kadambas the earth quake spared only the new building. The small damages can be fixed and six classrooms can be used from the beginning of 2017. The reconstruction of the old school, which was completely destroyed, is planned for 2018.

March 2014

The school community organized a big welcome celebration for the NHB delegation in March 2014 for the inauguration of the new Lower Secondary School, a school in Sukute in the valley of Sun Koshi. Special about this school is the good location right next to Arniko Highway, which leads to Tibet, and thus is one of the few schools that can be reached by car or school bus.

The still missing furniture will be delivered in the short run to guarantee the start of lessons soon. The inhabitants of Sukute insisted on the chance of an early inauguration in the presence of Roman Meier and Max Stix of NHB.

The school building consists of five classrooms, which offer space for about 150 pupils.
