India’s Deputy Chief of Mission in Nepal, Dr. Ajay Kumar inaugurated a new school building constructed with New Delhi’s assistance of 38.60 million Nepali rupees.
Many political and community leaders also attended the inaugural ceremony. The three-story building of Kuleshwor Awas Secondary School comprises 20 classrooms, separate sanitation facilities for boys and girls on each floor, an underground water tank, a septic tank and furniture.
The school, established in 1989 by Kuleshwor Awas Pariwar Kalyan Sanstha, is run with community support. At present, over 800 students are enrolled in the school. Of them, over 50 per cent are girls. Most of the students come from marginalized sections of society.
The newly built infrastructure is expected to boost the learning environment for students. Government of India is happy to be associated with the project which complements efforts of Government of Nepal in augmenting infrastructure in the field of education.
