Village Jhule, Lapsi-Phedi (VDC-3), is located 25 kilometers east of Kathmandu, about an hour’s drive. This village is mainly inhabited by Tamang Buddhist ethnic group, for several centuries.
The greater Jhule area consists of about 60 to 70 houses and 150 to 175 children attend school in another nearby village, which is about an hour’s walk. The walk is through a thin forest and dirt road which is made more by wild animals. Parents or adults do not always accompany these children to and from school.
KSP is willing to help the village with a construction of a Primary to medium level school that will be easily accessible to the students as well as provide them with a good standard of education. The village development committee has submitted a construction plan as detailed below.
The initial phase of this project provides for the construction of three classrooms, an office and a toilet block with 2 toilets.
