“School up – far west”: (almost) all that’s missing is the paint job

View of one of the two school buildings
More than 350 pupils can be taught in the school – here one of the two buildings.

When you’re swinging a paintbrush, you’re on the home straight. Anyone who has ever built a house or renovated an apartment knows this. When you can apply paint, the rough work is done and you can start to make it beautiful. Because it’s clear that you’ll soon be able to move in. This is what is currently happening to the people in the mountain village of Rama in Humla District in the far west of Nepal with their new school, which will soon be ready for use thanks to “School up – far west” and your donations.

“The two buildings, the two toilet blocks and the kitchen wing are currently being completed,” writes Shyam Pandit, the program coordinator of Nepalhilfe Beilngries in the Himalayan state. “I have sent a team of painters from Kathmandu to do the painting work.”

Handover in April

It should be completed in the coming week. The plan is to officially hand over the school to the village at the beginning of April. However, it will not be completely finished by then. This is because the exterior work is still to be done: The schoolyard has to be prepared, the access path paved and a fence put around the school.

So after 20 months, the finish line for “School up – far west” is in sight, but not yet reached. I hope that my reports on the progress of the project over the last more than a year and a half have shown you that every euro donated has been put to good use. This will continue to be the case – right up to the finish line. Here are the bank details once again:

Recipient: Nepalhilfe Beilngries e.V..
Bank: Volksbank Bayern Mitte eG/Germany
IBAN: DE05 7216 0818 0004 6227 07
Intended purpose: School up – far west

I will never tire of thanking you for your generosity. Also on behalf of the Austrian top mountaineer Gerlinde Kaltenbrunner, who is also diligently collecting donations for the project – and of course on behalf of the people in Rama. You are great!🙏
