Shree Bhimsen Secondary School

$

Shree Bhimsen Secondary School is located in Khatrithok, Sindhupalchowk. This already vulnerable community was one of the worst affected districts in the April, 2015 earthquake. Umbrella Australia are currently supporting the rebuilding of the school and invite you to be part of this community.

The School is centrally located and is attended by 252 children who walk on average 1 ½ hours from their homes daily to attend classes.  The project is to be managed by the Nepal River Conservation Trust and overseen by Megh Ale, chairperson of the trust and The Umbrella Organization Nepal. 

Many of the donations for this project have been made by Australian schools and we hope to establish a friendship program between these schools. This will be of benefit not only to the students in Nepal but will  be a wonderful opportunity for Australian youth to experience a cultural exchange program, trek and donate some time for community projects.

Umbrella Australia chose the school due to the desperate need within this community and its proximity to Kathmandu which allows supporters the opportunity to visit and see how their donations are being utilized.  This area suffered greatly in the 2015 earthquakes with many communities still living without homes for the second winter season.  Currently there are 4 classrooms for 252 children, 1 unfinished temporary building with the original school badly cracked and dangerous.  There are limited desks with children sitting on the floor to learn.

To date we have completed 2 levels of the school and are now on the home run.  By donating and supporting the project you are giving a child an opportunity and a future.  You also become part of the school community in our wall of gratitued which will include your contribution.
