Trekking Encounters organized Educational materials distribution programme on 23rd July, 2015 to the children of Shree Kuteshwori Primary School, a community school based in Makwanpur district of Nepal. The School is located in a remote village of Agra about 100 kilometers far from Kathmandu at an altitude of 2,500 meters approximately.
It is a primary school where children are from 5 to 14 years. The geographical site is completely remote and the main crops of the people are potatoes, seasonal vegetables, maize and millet. Teachers and children have to walk for 30 minutes to one and half hour to reach the school twice every day. The trail condition is very poor with many ups and downs.
We saw many houses demolished by the devastating earthquake. The school building couldn't remain safe either. We were requested to support the children with uniforms, notebooks and pencils. We distributed uniforms to 70 students. We made a jacket and a trouser to each of the students who were admitted at the school till date. The Principal of the school, Mr. Madhu KC said there are more to come.
We would like to thank our well-wishers and the contributors, Dr. Mehmet-Emin Korkmaz (Turkey), Mr. Dean Dunbar (UK), Ms. Lia Savage (Australia) and Ms. Helene Busser (France) who made this possible. There are more schools needing such support and our journey has started already…
