School Construction Project in Hil, Nepal
The village of Hil, in the Solo Khumbu area of Nepal, clings to the side of a steep mountainside. When the earthquake hit in 2015, much of their school was destroyed. With the support of the Welch family from Seattle, Crooked Trails collaborated with local non-profit Sherpa Welfare Association to build two new earthquake-proof schoolrooms and two bathrooms. Now, the community would like to build a dormitory for visiting English teachers and volunteers. English is very important for locals to learn, so they can work in the tourism industry at a higher level than that of porter.
The building will have four rooms, one for meetings and three bedrooms. Construction costs are estimated at $20,000. The community will donate the land and a good part of the labor.
