Dhrubatara School, located, in Dunahi, Dolpa, got extensive damage from falling rocks when they broke through the tin roof. “A student was hit on the head by a rock that fell through. “Some of the parents have stopped sending their kids to school”, said the principal requesting help from Himalayan Family. We were requested about $40,000 to relocate and rebuild this school. However, the board decided to pursue a phase- based approach to rebuilding this school. We approved $10,000 to purchase required land, level and fence off the school property. We were also able to build a reserve water tank for the school within our budget. We completed the project in the first week of August. We have informed the school that successful completion of the first phase will enable us to raise funds for the second phase.
Himalayan Family board has also approved $16000 towards the next phase of this school rebuilding. In this phase, we will add a permanent building with three rooms.
