Gaurishankar Higher Secondary School is located in Jagat village in the Dolakha District in the north-eastern Nepal (6-8 hours drive from Kathmandu). The village consists of over 448 households, whose primary occupation is agriculture. The majority of families have no income since they do not produce sufficient agricultural products for resale. The inhabitants also have a low level of education, since most of the children drop out of school after the fourth or fifth grade.

Due to the poverty in The Jagat village, 80 % of the male villagers, travel to other parts of Nepal and abroad to take on low-paid work (about 200 dollars/month).

Since the earthquakes last year, the children in the village has not had any good the school facilities. It is our hope that with a better teaching environment, and concrete goals for the development, we can support this community for a better future.

The building will be earthquake resistant and has eight classrooms.

Today, the school is almost finished, and the official opening ceremony is expected to be held in September 2017.
