Building work is well underway and rapid progress is being made at Shree Kharikhola Secondary School in the village of Kharikhola in the Solukumbu region of Nepal. This exciting project will provide a specialist Early Years centre which will make a big difference to the youngest children and the wider community of Kharikhola.
Thanks to help from the local community, demolition work of the old, inadequate school building has been completed and local building materials have been gathered. This has allowed for the team of labourers to prepare the ground and lay the foundations. Exemplarily construction techniques are being used to ensure the build is of an Earthquake resistant standard. Reinforced cement concrete and strong columns have been put in place to provide great strength and durability.
