The good work continues – 3 more primary schools to be rebuilt by the Autumn of 2018
The success of JT’s school rebuilding programme goes from strength to strength as work begins to rebuild three more primary schools in Nepal, in villages devastated in the earthquake of 2015. The schools, in the remote villages of Siruwa, Saraswati and Namuna, each have around 50 students who are still using temporary shelters for their education, over two years since the earthquake.
Situated in the remote villages in the foothills of the Mountain Everest Region, where Juniper Trust has already built several schools since the earthquake, its over a four hour walk from the nearest roadhead. Juniper Trust plans to rebuild each school with new classrooms, furniture and provide new uniforms and equipment for all of the children. Work began in March and is due to be completed by November 2018
The cost to rebuild each school is approx. £7,500 with an additional £1,500 per school for uniforms and equipment, a fundraising target of £27,000.
