Post Earthquake: School rebuilding

KE Adventure, Juniper Trust Project & the PLMF have put their hands together to support four schools in the Solukhumbu district which were badly damaged due to the recent devastating earthquake. The team has already visited the area to gather more information on the extent of damage caused and to find out the required support and assistance needed to rebuild the schools.

Juving Secondary School (Kharikhola)

Juving School immediately requires four classrooms, 2 toilets (male and female), a computer room, library, science room and a staff room for the teachers. The local community is very poor and it’s unlikely that the school will receive funding from any other sources. The new school will cost around £12,500 ($20,000) to build, using local labour and locally sourced material.

Sagarmatha Primary School (Surkey)

All of the 5 rooms and toilets are damaged. The students are shifted to a nearby house. The rent of the house is borne by the Himalayan Trust. Apart from this, there is no any help received so far. The estimated fund to construct the school is £9,375 ($15,000).

Yuwa Barsa Lower Secondary School (Monjo)

Shree Satkanya Primary School (Mankha – Sindhupalchowk)

All the classrooms, offices and toilets are damaged. Temporary baboo classrooms are made at the moment. Apart from this, no any help has been received so far. The School immediately requires 6 class rooms, 2 toilets (for male and female students), 1 library room and 1 teachers’ room. The cost of the new school will be £12,500 ($20,000).
