It is with a great sense of achievement and pride that Chairman, Chris Dickinson, Trustee, Jackie Thomson, Honorary Trustee, Mukunda Raj Shrestha and guests Jan Canning and Jim Campbell, attended the formal opening of the new building at Milijuli Primary School on 22nd November 2012.  This is a project that has transformed a school from a grass, mud and bamboo structure into a viable, quality building, with potential to build additional storeys.The school was part funded by Nepal Schools Trust over three years and in particular we would like to acknoweldge generous support from the Erach and Roshan Sadri Foundation who provided £6000.  Funds were also received from Cody Evan and his father in Ecuador, because the fund raising for this school was in memory of Pablo Evans, of Ecuador, a great friend of Chris’s, who had visited Nepal, who sadly died in a road traffic accident in Ecuador.  Other funds were given by Chris and also from the Nepal Schools Trust general fund raising.  Milijuli community raised a great many funds for themselves.

The welcome being organised… the grass and bamboo school is on the left, the new school straight ahead, and the celebration canopy on the right.

The Chairman and visitors receive the traditional welcome…

…an offering is made to the goddess of education Saraswoti.

To date the Milujuli school project is the second largest undertaking by Nepal Schools Trust. It is exceeded only by the filtered water project, reported elsewhere.

Congratulations to the community at Milijuli and everyone who has contributed to the school, to the staff and to our donors and best wishes for the future to you all.
