Ceremonial handover of the new school

A public holiday in the mountain village of Rama in the far west of Nepal. On Monday last week, the new school, the construction of which was made possible by your donations to “School up – far west”, was officially handed over to the villagers. More than 1,000 people celebrated exuberantly.

They came not only from Rama, but also from other villages in the municipality of Tanjakot in the Humla District. Numerous dignitaries were also present, including three mayors from Humla and seven principals from the region. Dances were performed – and speeches were given. The gratitude towards Nepalhilfe Beilngries, which had organized and implemented the school construction, and towards the “School up – far west” project was “heart-warming”, writes Shyam Pandit, the program coordinator of the German aid organization in Nepal.

With your money and the expertise of Nepalhilfe Beilngries, the construction of the new school in the village in Humla District goes on. “I’ve experienced studying in a school with a makeshift roof, facing challenges like wind, rain, and clouds. Today, I express heartfelt gratitude to the Nepalhilfe organization for enhancing our school’s standards,” says Prabhav Shahi.
