School Extension phase 3
In a last step of extending the school building we are looking for a music and assembly hall on top of the new extension building. Some pillars and wall elements of the top floor are already existing (then the money run out).
Unfortunately the prices for construction material have literally exploded in consequence of all the repairs and rebuilds after the earthquake; so the last floor has to be build at elevated costs.
More Solar Power to the School
The new constitution of Nepal has lead to a smoldering conflict between India and Nepal: to raise pressure on changing the constitution India is blocking any delivery of any kind of fuel since early October. This is also affecting life at our school: no gas for cooking, no power for pumps, internet, light.
We can not influence the conflict, but we can assist the school by raising a fund for an extension of the solar power plant at the roof of the building to provide at least a little energy by own devices.
Even when we not reached our goal completely: the school got enabled to instal 2more solar panels including adjusted electronics. Another step forward: THANKS TO ALL SUPPORTERS WHO ENABLED THIS SUCCESS !
School Extension Phase 2
After the big quakes in April/May 2015 there is debris all around in Nepal, but there is also
repair, rebuild and new constructions.
Only 2 years after start of the project School Extension the building skeleton of ground, second and third floor is complete, including walls and frames for windows and doors. Now priority is given to make the building usable.
Finishing the interior:
electrification, plastering of walls, floor and ceiling, glass for the windows, doors, fittings, locks: all together this is available in Nepal for just € 5.100.- per floor
tables and chair, desks and benches, cupboards and white boards make class rooms, for € 2100.- per floor
This project was completed by Aug 2016 with completing the constructions for the 3rd floor and partly installations for use like doors, windows, reeling at the balconies and safety stairs. THIS IS GREAT: THANKS TO ALL SUPPORTERS !
Next step will be to support the last construction etappe nr 3
Emergency Fund Earthquake 2015
After the massive earthquakes in April and May 2015 all summer long this was our top priority project: we aimed to provide an emergency fund fast, directly and complete to our main partners in Nepal: TOIT (the school) and KOPILA (the orphanage). We were surprised by the wave of support: just a few weeks after the quakes we transferred € 2.000.- to the orphanage and € 10.000.- to the school organization: 89 children were supported with food, clothes and materials, damages at the school building got repaired and the building skeleton of the extension building was stabilized, all by YOUR SUPPORT: CORDIAL THANKS to all supporters!

Long-haul project School Extension
This is a true strategic and long-haul project to secure the future:
the current school building is completely in use. How will the school progress to the future? A 3-level extension building offering 2000 squarefeet per level shall provide the space needed in the next future ! Based on the courage of the school founder INdra Prasad Khaitu and with support of the donators in Germany and France this ambitious project was started; planning and the first works have already been completed; so the ambitious venture already begun!
The extension building is planned to be erected in phases and is aimed to be completed by 2016. Each level is estimated to cost about € 10.000.-
By Nov 2014 the skeleton for ground and first floor has been completed and will be continued in the following weeks to the 3rd level.
September 2015: the building shell is almost completed: thanks to the many supporters who made this ambitious project becoming reality!
Only the start of the next phase: make the building usable: plastering, electrification, painting furniture: a respective project will be issued here soon.
Basket ball and table tennis to the students
Once the school yard has been paved for use even in the rainy season let's help to better use it!
For just € 750.- the school can buy locally in Bhaktapur what's needed to play basket ball and table tennis, this also includes work fees. Read more.
Collection of funds and donations have been completed and the fund has already been transferred to Nepal, we will keep you informed here on the progress at the school yard (see also the BB&TT project page). THANKS A LOT to all sponsors and donators!
Paving the schoolyard
The school Saraswoti Pathshala has a little schoolyard where the students can play durimg the breaks, before or after the lessons. As the yard is made of clay it is soaking wet after rain or especially during monsoon saison and can not be used for playing.
Based on donations by another organisation the school has started to pave the yard. As the fund is not sufficient yet to complete the work we would like to support: for € 500.- plastering incl.work fees can be completed and the student can use the schollyard all year long.
The project got meanwhile funded by a fund raising party "2xSIXTY of Sabine & Christian". Cordial thanks to all sponsors !
Solar Power for the school Saraswoti Pathshala
Electric power is available in Nepal at only 8 - 7 hours per day, partly at night times: a daily changing schedule dictates the rhythm of life for the Nepali. Lighting, water pumps, computer: with YOUR support solar panels, a battery and respective electronics could be provided for about EUR 3000.- !
Availability of at least a minimum of power at the school Saraswati Pathshala will significantly improve the conditions for living and learning. YOUR donation helps the people to help themselves !
