First days on the building site
A few days ago, we arrived on the building site at Mulkharka village. The works had already started a few days before we arrived. The team, made of 15 nepali workers and 8 international volunteers, is working hard and fast : the foundations are already dug, a few rows of earth bags are built and the door and window frames are placed. How nice to see the project getting off the ground!
The atmosphere of the project is great, we are surrounded by the Himalayas, wonderful people and children, it feels good to have our hands full of earth!
We wanted to thank warmly Fred Mersch and Vincent Lens (and his company Oh Yeah!) for their great support in the creation of our project's communication. Thanks to their help, communication has been a success and we have raised over 16 000 €!
Arrival in Nepal
On wednesday the 16th of March, we arrived in Kathmandu, Nepal, after 2 days travelling with Pablo, one one of the volunteer from Gran Canaria who will work with us on the rebuilding of the school. Yesterday, we met Durga, the director of First Steps Himalaya in Nepal, to organize the weeks to come. In the evening, we went to pick up Celia, Idaira and Manolo, 3 other volunteers from Gran Canaria, at the airport. They will join our volunteers' team in one week.
Tomorrow morning, we will head to the mountains, where we will start rebuilding the school of Mulkharka, a small and remote village on the heights of the community of Kadambas. According to the needs on the ground and following FSH's advices, we decided to rebuild that school reusing, in an ecological concern, the existing metallic structure (recycling architecture). This will help saving time and money!
There is already a team of local laborers working on the ground and digging the foundations. The project has well started and runs smoothly. We are looking forward to putting our hands in earth and start rebuilding.
Thanx to all our donors, this project is getting off the ground.
Thanx you for your generosity and your trust!
YOU CHANGE THE WORLD!
