What is the issue, problem, or challenge?
Currently, 120 students are studying at Emmanuel English Boarding School at Thori, village. But, unfortunately, the school management decided to sell the school to a new party and the new management of the boarding school is relocating Emmanuel School in another village called Swarnapur. So, for that location, it takes almost 3 hours of walk to reach the school which is impossible for all the kids and along with 35 scholars of MEI. Now, all the local parents of 100 kids, and we as guardians of MEI children are facing a great problem to educate our children from a good boarding school.
How will this project help to solve the problem?
This project will guarantee the safety of school children and teachers and improve the learning environment and curriculum implementation, which directly leads to an improvement in the children’s learning outcome and development. The school will have appropriate rooms for classes, offices, toilets, and library.
Fortunately, in 2016 the locals have donated 1690 sq. a meter of land for the MEI School building project. “The smallest act of kindness is worth more than the grandest intention ”
In 1690 sq. a meter of area 15-rooms can build as for the use of classrooms, principal room, staff room, dining room, IT room, library. School is going to be built in eco-friendly and the classroom will be prepared in stimulating classroom environment base on the resources available at the local level.
School Building 3D Design:
– MEI has already collected 5000 books (equivalent to $15000) from Kathmandu valley with the help of 12 college students and those books will be kept in community library which will be operated by MEI and our children and teachers will also use the same library for any reference books and materials.
– MEI’s president and Europe coordinator Mrs. Sina Tanner have already collected the donation of $3000 from the generous donors.
– While Building the school 10 youths have committed to work voluntarily for 7 days in the construction site.
– In the local level, MEI will be getting 30% off from forest management while purchasing the wood for the school building use.
We make a living by what we get, but we make a life by what we give. Let’s build a school for orphans and poor children in the remote village.
MEI is an organization run by the people who were brought up from an orphanage and a volunteer (Sina Tanner) who was once a volunteer at NAG, a home for homeless ones (a non-profit organization) run by Swiss and French people. So, all team members of MEI has a clearly know the importance of education in children’s lives and who have once experienced, grown up with the help of sponsors in their childhood.
All the board members are working voluntarily for the organization since 2013. Now, MEI has been able to send 35 children to school. Due to the Emmanuel school, the reallocation problem team is working out to build a new school on the land donated by locals to build a school.
