Construction of ten new classrooms

The new classroom block will house ten desperately needed extra classrooms.
Once complete these new classrooms will provide students with an environment that is safe, comfortable in all seasons, and conducive to learning.

Providing community access to education

Increasing the number of children, including ‘landless’ children, who have the opportunity to take part in a good quality English language education up to year 12.

Construction of Science and Technology Block

The building of a Science Lab, Computer Lab, Library and Early Learning Centre will give teachers, students, and community members access to the necessary resources to create opportunities for further education and preparation for college and the working world.

Access to education is a basic human right, and is something most of us take for granted, but for many of these children growing up in a remote rural village in Western Nepal, this is far from their reality. Only a quarter of Nepalese children actually finish high school.

Our goal for this project is to raise a total of AUD $165,000, over 4 phases. 

Help the children and families of Western Nepal

Your generous donation helps to:

PHASE 1: Success and Building Update

FUNDRAISING COMPLETE

 

We are excited to share with you that an application has been lodged and once approved the school will be able to offer year 11 and year 12 from April 2020.

PHASE 2: Success and Building Update

FUNDRAISING COMPLETE

Our objective was to keep the construction team on site beyond Phase 1 to immediately commence Phase 2 works, so that the building of five new classrooms on the lower level of the classroom block could commence. They are now close to completion. If time permits before monsoon, we will also complete the civil works and foundations for the science and technology block. Otherwise this activity will be priority after the Monsoon rains finish. Whilst work is close to completion for Phase 1 and well underway for Phase 2 we have commenced fundraising for Phase 3.

 

Your donation to Phase 2 is being used for the:

  • Construction of five new classrooms. These five classrooms are the ground floor classrooms of the new block that will house ten additional classrooms, once complete. The new classrooms provide students with an environment that is conducive to learning.

 

  • Civil works and foundation for new Science and Technology block. When complete, the students will have access to a dedicated 4 room block that will be fitted out for more technical and skill specific education for the students (library, science laboratory, early learning centre and computer laboratory), as well as creating facilities for training opportunities in health, human rights and entrepreneurship for the broader local community. Phase 2 includes the completion of excavation, civil works and foundations for the Science and Technology block.

 

Phase Three: CONSTRUCTION OF THE SCIENCE AND TECHNOLOGY BLOCK

FUNDRAISING TARGET: AUD $48,000

 

Phase 3 is raising funds for the building of the Science and Technology Block, which will provide one dedicated teaching space for Science, one for Computing as well as being home to the Library and an interactive Early Learning Centre. The building will be a 2 story structure, with Science and Technology labs on the upper level, and the Library and Early learning Centre being situated on the lower level. These spaces will also be used for community education for the broader population, in areas such as: education, health (including nutrition and hygiene) as well as enterprise. We are working with STEM Education specialists in Australia to maximise the impact of the design for the block. Our objective is to complete these works by the end of 2019.
