Monsoon has just started.
With the support of WILD YAK EXPEDITIONS and the BUTTERFLY HELP PROJECT (www.butterflyhelpproject.org), the provisionary primary school Shree Palep Ramche in the Rasuwa district of the national park area of Langtang could be built with the steel sheets that we brought on 7 June 2015.
All though the whole area is full of landslides, the 103 kids are happy and excited to go to school with their incomplete school uniforms, which were buried in the collapsed houses. We got also the information that till now, 17 people whose bodies couldn’t be recovered are still missing.
Norbu brought a few sports material such as footballs, volleyballs, badmintons, skips, disk flyers, together with two caromboards. Even if the kids do not have a big place to play such sports, they were so happy to receive such material.
To encourage these beautiful butterflies (kids) to come to school, we gave each of them a notebook with pencils, erasers, sharpers, together with food for a daily lunch and snack at the tea breaks. WILD YAK EXPEDITIONS has appointed its own company cook (Saila Tamang) and assistant cook for a month to cook good food for these young butterflies.
We are so pleased to see that these kids can study, eat and play, whereas in the meantime their parents can work on rebuilding their broken dreams and two people can work.
Once more we THANK YOU all for your great help and support thanks to which we could bring little smiles and cheers on these beautiful butterflies faces.
