As part of our mission to provide access to education, Karuna-Shechen plans to build one school every two years in a remote area of Nepal. Previously we built a school hostel in Humla and a school in Dolpo (see map).
This January, we will begin construction on an elementary school in an isolated village in the district of Taplejung in northeastern Nepal, 2100 meters above sea level.
Eighty children from 350 Sherpa families will attend the school and have access to a quality education that respects their cultural heritage. There will be 9 rooms for classes and administration, a caretaker’s house, and sanitary facilities with reliable access to water. We hope that the school will be ready for enrollment in June 2018.

We will also support another 6 schools in isolated areas as part of our ongoing program that annually introduces new schools that need assistance.
Thanks to your generous and essential support, our education projects in Nepal will be able to continue and benefit 730 more elementary school children in 2018.
