Shree Shanti Biddya Primary School, Nepal:

After the earthquakes in 2015, we launched a fundraising initiative for the Shree Shanti Biddya Primary School in Nuwakot, Nepal.
The natural catastrophe not only destroyed many houses, but also the school in the small mountain village.
Through the great cooperation with Nepalaya and several collection and sales campaigns, we soon had enough together to build a new school for the 150 children.
Since then we have also financed a teacher for the school, because the state does not pay enough teachers.
Top and right, October 2016:
In the pictures you can see the new school shortly after its opening – in purple and white.
To the right are the ruins of the old school. The children are waiting for us with flower chains after we have hiked up the mountain for 2 hours.
(the school is not accessible by car…).

On the left the school directly after the earthquake – or what was left of it – and the building site for the new school with steel beams and building materials. When we arrived there, workers dug the large holes into which the foundation was poured with shovels and pimples. The water for the cement was fed directly into the holes and mixed there.
On the far right you can see an intermediate solution for classrooms during construction: board sheds with plastic – so at least the lessons can continue.
Thanks to everyone who helped and donated, all your donations went directly to the school project <3 <3 <3

Jaya supports Friendcircle-Worldhelp,
an organization that helps people in
need in India and around the world.
Their projects include soup kitchens,
distribution of clothing for street
children, support for schools, medical

general help for self-help in many
different ways. All associates are

Here you can see a few impressions of concrete projects.

On the right: These children enjoy their new self-knit caps. Besides donating clothing, Friendcircle-Worldhelp also provides blankets, since winters in northern India are very cold.
