Shree Gorakhnath Basic School is situated in Panauti Municipality of Kavre district, some 35 kilometers away from the capital city Kathmandu. Despite a tendency of sending children to better private school in the area, this school retains constant number of students for the past few years as many of the children studying in the school are from the poor family background.
“Most of the parents even can not afford for uniforms and stationary in sufficient numbers,” said Ishwor Bahadur Bhandari, “support from ADRA will certainly reduce the financial burden of our student’s parents.”
ADRA Provided school kit to all 85 students of the schools that includes uniform, bag, notebook set, shoe polish and brush, socks, handkerchief, ribbon for girls, water bottle, and geometry box among other.
As part of lending support to strengthen public school, ADRA Nepal has also set up libraries in three schools recently in Kavre including Shree Gorakhnath School following construction of school rooms in 2017.
Many of the schools had turned into rubble because of devastating earthquake in 2015.
