Help us make BIG improvements to Shree Krishna Primary School

Status: Stalled

Shree Krishna Primary School is located in the remote area of Gamauli, Nepal. It is a small school, but as enrollment has grown, so has the need to expand the existing school building. Students range in age from 7-12 years.

Gamauli is a very poor area of Nepal. In May 2008, the World Food Program ceased providing a daily meal to the students at the school. As a result, enrollment has dropped from 200 students to 140. The school has no electricty or other means of power, lacks a proper toilet, has no access to clean water and is heated only by the sun. Parents cannot afford to purchase school uniforms and students often come to class dirty and poorly dressed for the weather.

The local community would like to work on making much needed improvements to the school. They hope one day that the school can be transformed into a model school that others can look to as a positive example. They have prioritized their plans to address the issues at the school as follows:

1. Access to drinking water. (COMPLETED-April 2009)
2. Expansion of the existing school building.
3. Construction of a proper toilet(s). (COMPLETED-April 2009)
4. Other improvements (compound wall, books for the school, etc)
