Shree Sunkoshi Primary school, Madan Kudari VDC 6, Kavre district – Opened 9th May 2008
Shree Sunkoshi Primary School was our sixth school build and was opened in May 2008. The finance for the school was donated by HSBC and was the work of Andy Collins. Andy had been present at a UAP Charity Ball and saw what work they were dong building schools in Nepal. Andy contacted us and pledged the funding to build a school in Nepal from HSBC Bank. The school was opened by the group of trekkers from our 2008 DCWC Nepal Everest Base Camp Trek and also were joined by
Tomas and Ludmila from Namaste Nepal (Czech Republic version of DCWC Nepal). Shree Sunkoshi is in a very beautiful area near to where the Sun Koshi river and the Chourikhola river meet. The school is accessible by road and is a 5 to 6 hour drive mostly by dirt track from Kathmandu. We were treated to a tropical early monsoon storm half way through proceedings which went as quickly as it came.
Thanks to all who made this possible. As always Akka Lama for everything and Guna Lama the engineer and logistics man. the group who came – Peter and Luke Jones, John Probert, Cliff Honey, Jamie Newburn, John Farrow, Tomas Baranek, Ludmila Hnilikova and Binay Lama. And a very special thanks to HSBC Bank for providing the finance to make this happen.
