SEI Nepal also trained 12 teachers of the school in the early childhood development philosophy. The local community has also contributed its efforts for completing the building construction.

He said, “I would like to thank and congratulate the school administration and management committee for completing the project. Our organization has, and is willing to partner with the school in other areas as well.”
The principal of the school, Thakur Updahaya, thanking the SEI Nepal’s support said, “We are pleased that this support has helped in creating a better learning environment for our students. Now we do not need to conduct classes in old private houses.”
