Shree Pratibha Primary School, Makwanpur Gadhi VDC9 Makwanpur District – Opened 7th May 2009
Shree Pratibha Primary School, Makwanpur was our eleventh school build and was very kindly donated by the school children of Congleton High School. Co-ordinated by Caroline Eckersley, the pupils did a variety of activities to raise the necessary funds to build the school. The school was opened on 7th May and capped a busy month of four school openings. Shree Pratibha was opened by father and son, Peter and Luke Jones.
Both are based in Lytham St Annes, the home of the charity and had been out to Nepal to climb Island Peak. It wasn’t their first trip, having been to Nepal the year before to do Everest Base camp, and were part of the group to open Shree Sunkoshi school.
Thanks to all who made this possible. As always Akka Lama for everything and Guna Lama the engineer and logistics man. Thanks to Peter and Luke Jones for opening the school. And a very special thanks to Congleton High School for donating the school funds.
