Construction of Libraries in 4 VDCs in Ilaka 12, Sindhupalchok district commencesJune 23rd, 2016 by CMI Nepal
The construction of libraries in Gunsa, Baruwa, Bhotang and Bhotenamlang VDCs in Sindhupalchok district is currently underway. The libraries are being built through the Establishing Accountability and Transparency Mechanism in School Governance Project funded by Give-2-Asia. The libraries will be built in the following five schools in each VDC:
- Chandika Secondary School, Baruwa VDC
- Kumbeshwory Primary School, Gunsa VDC
- Bhotang Devi Secondary School, Bhotang VDC
- Kshetrapaleshwory Higher Secondary School, Bhotenamlang VDC
- Thangpaldhap Higher Secondary School, Thangpaldhap VDC
All the above four schools suffered major destruction during the earthquake and require new libraries. In the future, the libraries will not only serve as a reading room for the children but the monthly Village Education Committee (VEC) meetings will also take place in them. The truss and civil work is currently going on in Kshetrapaleshwory School, Bhotenamlang and Bhotang Devi School, Bhotang.
On the other hand, in Chandika School, Baruwa and Kumbeshwory School, Gunsa the truss and civil work has already been completed. The iron frames for the structure and the tin roofs are now being set up in these two schools as can be seen from the images below. Construction is yet to begin for the library in Thangpaldhap Higher Secondary School in Thangpaldhap VDC. We have set a target to complete the construction of these 5 libraries by the end of July as long as the monsoon does not delay our process.
