Building Schools in Rural Nepal

Nepal children school building fundraisingEducational opportunities are crucial to young people in rural Nepal with hopes for a better future. In Nepal, most children attend primary school up to age 10, but in rural areas there often is not a secondary school near enough for them to complete their education.

In partnership with the Kathmandu Environmental Education Program and Three Summits for Nepal, Crooked Trails has built or refurbished six schools in Nepal.

In the village of Chandani, our travelers have refurbished the elementary school and built both the lower and upper secondary schools. Villagers in and around Chandani now have access to a full education, extending through the 10th grade, which they have not had before. Subsequent groups of Crooked Trails participants helped build the water system and a new well, as well as toilets for the school.

In 2015, following the devastating earthquakes, we were able to repair damage to the village school we built along with mending the village water supply. We also delivered over 100,000 lbs of essential food to sustain the 1,000 families of this community for 3 months. In addition, we built a library for the 400 students, and one inspired Crooked Trails supporter has spearheaded the collection of books to fill it with.

2016 marks the kick-off a new school building project in the village of Hil in the Solo Khumbu region where we are building a 3 room school in conjunction with the Sherpa Welfare Nepal Foundation, to be completed by September. We are also working on a school in Shree Thungi Primary School, Chatredeurali with 60 volunteers in November of 2016 to repair the earthquake damage and paint it.
