Nepal: Water and sanitation in schools (WASH) and school support (with RC Kathmandu)

Brought to us by Trevor through Utsav, his contact at RC Kathmandu, it is a support for the Shree Surya Ratri Primary School Surkedangi, Dang, a school of seventy-three pupils.

The aim is to enhance the quality of education by providing stationery materials, creating awareness about the importance of health & sanitation, developing the public image and relationship of Rotary in the community, and improving the attendance of the students. They need desks, benches, stationery, sports equipment, school bags, WASH training and hygiene kits (nail cutter, toothpaste, brush, oil, Dettol soap) as well as school transportation.

A detailed budget shows a total figure of C$ 3,892 . The Rotary Club of Kathmandu will put in $ 2,392; we have committed $ 1,500.  In view of the project’s great necessity, the important input of the local club itself, and having recently received an updated project proposal , “we are ready to go” says Trevor.
