Would like to introduce one of the potential projects Nana’s House is currently looking at to complete during our 2 month trip starting on September 14th.
At one point, this land was the site of Mahendra Primary School in the Kaski District of Nepal. Because of the horrendous April 25th earthquake, the school was so badly fractured that it was deemed unusable and subsequently was demolished. What lies there now is a temporary shelter so that the children may still be able to attend school during the monsoon rains. The temporary shelter is a terrific short term solution but is in no way the size needed to educate the 120 children who currently attend Mahendra Primary School.
The proposal of the re-build is to have 7 classrooms, 3 bathrooms, 1 library and 1 teacher room. The previous building had 0 bathrooms, which meant children and teachers were previously and currently having to venture into the woods to relieve themselves.
Many people from the village, including those with construction-oriented jobs, have volunteered to participate in the construction of the building which will keep labor costs at an absolute minimum.
If this is the project decided upon the Nana’s House Staff, we are currently half way to the projected cost of $12,000
