Shree Himalayan Secondary is an important pillar of the local education ecosystem serving as the main secondary school for several local communities, including a feeder school in the larger village of Landruk. There are over 100 students between the ages of 3 and 16 years that attend the school.
To show their commitment to the project, the parents in Tolka will raise $8,000 and provide the manpower to build the school. Hope Corps and Stepping Stones have committed to raising the difference. To add perspective, nearly half of Nepal's population lives on less than $2 a day. The community's commitment to raising $8,000 demonstrates just how much they want this school. This will be no small feat!
