Providing clean water and gender specific toilets with 4 new classrooms has provided unique facilities for young students at Shree Sagarmatha High School. Over 750 students from age 3 upwards attend the school. In a remote and underprivileged village, many children find work and support their famililies by carrying out heavy farming tasks and fetching and carrying. Education can break the cycle of poverty and the provision of good quality classrooms, dedicated teachers and healthy environments is a huge factor in keeping students at school.
CITCNepal has supported the building of 4 classrooms, gender specific toilets and clean water. Significant funding from an International Rotary Grant and the British Foreign Schools Society provided a springboard to other fundraising by CITC. The quality of the building is plain for all to see and attracted many complimentary comments from the local community. The excitement in tasting clean freshly filtered water was inspiring. No one in the village will have tasted filtered water from a tap in their village. The village's common water source runs in the main street from a standpipe and people use this to wash, cook and drink from. The District Education Official has said in various settings that the CITCNepal supported project is the model for all other NGOs to follow!
