About the project

Bhawani Higher Secondary School. 

In the Himalayan foothills of Nuwakot district is beautiful Kakani village. Located 1.5hrs drive north of Kathmandu city this community is blessed with incredible vistas of Ganesh Himal and the Manaslu mountain range. This region is home to the Bhawani Higher Secondary school. 

  

There are 765 pupils and 21 teachers. Of the 26 classrooms 16 were damaged. Funding has since run out for certain rebuild projects.

Active Hearts has been assisting this wonderful school since Nov 2018.

- We have installed classroom windows and doors:

After visiting the classrooms and speaking with the school Principal and teachers, we saw there was a huge lack of seating and workplaces for the students. In one class alone there is 85 students and not enough space for them to learn sufficiently.

  

With that in mind Active Hearts Foundation agreed to fund the construction of 20 bench and table combinations. Local builders were employed for the job and they were made on site.

The project was a success and although small a huge diffence has been made to the quality of the classrooms for the students and teachers.

A group of Active Hearts members attended a lovely celebration ceremony at the school complete with wonderful speeches and dancing by the students. Follow this link to see the Active Hearts documentary which includes footage of the Bhawani celebration ceremony.
