Sad but true......School reconstruction faces a huge funding gap of Rs. 27 billion.

Our work must continue in Gorkha!!

Four years after the devastating earthquake, the government is yet to ensure necessary budget, which amounts to billions of rupees, for the reconstruction of school buildings, which could mean thousands of students will have to study in makeshift structures for a few more years.
