Who: 170 students from Yangrima School plus wider community benefits 1,300 children and 800 households in the region.

worked with the local community to restore the school, renovating its classrooms and paying for teacher’s salaries. The school is now open again, and attendance levels are growing, with many families returning back to their native community. This year, we continue to support the school, by providing teacher training and are now working on a new health project that will see Dhulikhel Hospital provide healthcare to children in this rural district of Nepal.
