In November 2011 Nepal Schools Trust granted funds to Bhimsen Secondary School to assist in building additional toilet and shower facilities for female students. When school leaving certificate time comes around, students and staff live at the school for almost 3 months for special study and revision. There was a desperate need to provide private washing, showering and toileting faciltities for the young women staying at the school. This photo, taken this week by Mukunda, shows that the facility is built and in use already.
Below you can see bedding rolled up during the day in one of the classrooms. It is indicative of the extraordinary commitment of Nepalis to schooling that staff and students should live in the school during the lead up to the final school examinations. Hard to imagine such a thing happening in the UK!!
