Narayani Higher Secondary School of Gimdi, Lalitpur district was established in 1963. The school has 16 teachers and staff serving more than 400 students in nursery to grade 11. It is to the south east of Kathmandu,around 75 kilometers away, connected by mostly gravel road.
The school was recently relocated to where it is now as the previous place was not very suitable to operate a school. As the cement black boards fixed in the wall could not be moved, the school was looking for support in purchasing white boards to use in its classrooms. The school also lacked drinking water system.
We are helping the school by providing 12 white boards to be used in the classes of nursery to grade 12. We are also helping the school in setting up water system so that children can use the water when they need it.
The total estimated cost of this project is NRs. 55,400, in words, fifty five thousand four hundred (around US$ 650) only. We will contribute around $ 500 while the school will bear the rest of the cost along with the transportation and fitting charges.
An agreement was signed with the school for the provision of white boards and the installation of drinking water system on January 10, 2013.
White boards and components required for installing a drinking water system have been delivered to the school on January 27, 2013.
