School Reconstruction : Lali Guras Primary School of Panuati, Kavre


Laliguras Primary School is situated in Kushadevi VDC-9, Kavre.  This school is badly hit by April - May earthquake.  This school runs playgroup to grade 5 and educated 80 students. 

Now, these students are taking their classes in a bamboo makeshift. It’s noisy and   crowded.  The teachers have to wait to teach, as there are 4 grades in a one-bamboo makeshift.

According to the District Education of Office (DEO), Kavre, the earthquake has damaged 527 schools of Kavre district. 


Intercultural Women’s Educational Network (IWEN) has been supporting different welfare activities in Nepal through Creating Possibilities Nepal. After the devastating earthquake, IWEN did relief work and has been supporting to reconstruct the schools, which were demolished by the earthquake.

School Principal Sanobabu Wagle says, “The classes were disrupted and it was noisy. Running 3 grades in a one temporary room was very difficult.  Now, We are very happy and satisfied with the work progress though there are not enough supplies due to the Indian blockade.
He adds, “ This school and students are very lucky as we got the good donors.”

The Happiness

The school building has been started to construct from October.  The construction will be completed by December 2015. There are 4 classrooms. The students needed rooms as soon as possible so this building constructed with iron truss and metal roof. There will be false ceiling to avoid noise from rain   and it will not be hot in summer.

The locals and teachers are actively participating for the construction.  Locals are very happy and have praised the construction work done by IWEN as the time of necessity whether the government is delaying its reconstruction program me due to the disagreement among political parties.
