Antarastriya Yuba Barsa Ni Ma Bi school, Pudi Ghyang, Lakhanpur VDC, Ramechap district
Opened 26th August 2008

  Natarastriya Yuba Barsa Ni Ma Bi School was our seventh school build and UAPs third school. The school was opened by UAP employee Chris Pankhurst and his daughter Emma Wise on 26th August 2008. The school was dedicated to the memory of the late father of Lynne Jennings, wife of UAP MD Dave Jennings. Natarastriya school is in a very rural area of Ramechhap which makes access to it a little testing. They eventually made it to the village in time for it to be opened. Any event that is scheduled during the monsoon creates a lot of difficulties. The rains came along as expected driving the proceedings indoors. The school treated the western guests to a Traditional Tamang dance festival as part of the proceedings.
