Field visit to see Bhotenamlang - Sindhupalchowk

 

VILLAGE NAME : TIMBURPOTOO 8
VDC : BHOTENAMLANG - SINDHUPALCHOWK

AIM: FIELD VISIT TO SEE THE DAMAGED SCHOOL AND TO HANDOVER 2 PERSON TENTS AND FOOD FOR THE TEACHERS OF THE SCHOOL.


 Yesterday our team decided to visit Maya Gurung's Village (She is one of the first nepali woman, seven summit team member who has scaled all of the 7 highest mountains in all the 7 continents) at her special request. Her village had been severely affected by the Earthquake. The drive was around 3 hours with some serious off road driving required.

 


 

We reached the school around 10 am and it was wonderful to meet Maya, we then took a detailed inspection of the school. Our Vice-President, who is an engineer and an architect by profession got to work swiftly. He began taking measurements and other required data of the site. The school is currently deemed not safe for the children to study in due to which there were a few volunteers who had been helping Maya in building temporary schools, structured out of bamboos for the children. We had a good meeting with the headmaster and the president of the school from whom we were able to get abundant information regarding the village such as the severity of the damage caused, number of homes destroyed, the schools condition and several other data.

 


 

We handed over 10 (2 person tents), 10 bags of rice ( 30 kg each ) and lentils to Maya. All of this was meant for the teachers, we planned for it to be a form of incentive so that the teachers would stay and teach the children.

Our plan at the moment is to collaborate all the information we have received regarding the school and the village community and to then have a detailed meeting at the NGTF office. Whereupon we can come to a conclusion as to how we can help re-build the school and ways in which we can generate potential donations which will then be diverted towards the construction of the new school.

 


 

NGTF would like to thank ONE PLANT COMPANY Mr. Andrew from Australia and Philip Van Dueren from OUTDOOR TRAVELS MELBOURNE for their kind HELP and donation of the 2 person tents and sleeping bag. Please support at: http://igg.me/at/ZrIYGV4p0kA
