Back in Person!The students of the Vidhyashram school took their final exams. Our fifth grade graduates are now moving on to secondary schools in the area, many on scholarships to very good private schools thanks to the generosity of our donors.After a two-week break the new session has now started, and brand new students have been added to the nursery class. It is so encouraging to see their little faces eager to learn.

Dipesh, a Star Student

Like all of our students, Dipesh’s family has serious financial challenges. They come from a village in rural Nepal. In fact Dipesh’s father still lives in the village. Dipesh’s mother works night shifts, so when Dipesh comes back from school, he is on his own.Dipesh has just graduated fifth grade at the top of the class. He is a brilliant student. He also shows incredible character. Due to the family’s financial challenges, he has to work and earn money after school. He delivers donuts to various bakeries in the area. After that, he has to cook his own dinner before spending a few hours on his homework. In spite of these challenges, Dipesh is an excellent student, and always has a ready smile on his face.Dipesh is now entering secondary school on scholarship. We are confident he will follow in the footsteps of so many previous students who are excelling in their further studies.

New Water Tank and New Greenhouse

An underground water tank to meet the needs of the school.Unfortunately water is a scarce resource in Kathmandu. It is not unusual to not have water for two weeks at a time. This really affects the running of the school. The good news is that we now have a large underground water tank, ensuring that the school never runs out of water!A greenhouse at the Chhaimale village center.Now that the pandemic is over, we can re-start the production of pear candy at the small factory in the village center.We needed a greenhouse to be able to dry the fruit. Now we are ready for the pear season!!! The great news is that the pear factory will help support the vocational training program at the village center, so the aim is for the center to be 100% self-sustained financially.
