Bal Manorama Lower Secondary School of Ashrang – 3, Lalitpur district was established in 1967. The 10 teachers and staff serving more than 210 students from nursery to grade eight. The school is 60 kilometers away from Kathmandu.
The school has identified a water spring and piped the water from there to the school. However, the water collection at the spring is not managed properly and so is the distribution at the school.
The school was seeking to replace its black boards and chalk with white boards and markers so that teachers and students do not have to suffer from the chalk dust inside the classrooms. The school was looking for external resources to implement this project.
We have stepped in to manage the water collection at the source and the distribution system at the school. We will also be assisting the school in purchasing ten white boards for use in all the classrooms.
The total estimated cost of the project is NRs. 63,000 (around US$ 630). We are contributing NRs 47,888 and the school contributing the rest of the estimate. Rising Tide, USA has financially supported this project.
An agreement was signed with the school on January 6, 2014 and the work is expected to complete by mid March.
