Bagh Bhairab Secondary School of Chaughare, Lalitpur district was established in 1960. The school has 14 staff serving more than 250 students from nursery to grade 10. The school is around 40 kilometers away from Kathmandu.
The school conducts its classes and administrative activities from ten rooms that are operational. Since at least 12 rooms are required for its basic operations, it has partitioned its classrooms into smaller rooms to provide a room to each grade. To address school’s need for additional classrooms, the District Education Office, Lalitpur provided a partial grant to complete the construction of a four room building. With the assistance of the District Development Office, Lalitpur and Village Development Office, Chaughare, it completed the construction of two rooms and completed the frame for two more rooms. The school is seeking for resources to complete these two rooms so that classes can be conducted at those rooms.
We were approached by the school to help it complete the construction of two rooms. We have made field visits to the school to assess the need of the school and have held discussions with the school regarding our involvement in the project.
The school management committee has expressed its desire to contribute at least 25 percent of the estimated cost of about NRs. 670,000 (US$ 8,000).
An agreement was signed with the school on June 9, 2013 and the construction is expected to complete by end of August.
