It was matter of joy, pride and happiness for me to see NSP Director Fran Lloyd, Betty Irwin and other delegates in our village. We at the village in Kaavre had thought that NSP would not continue its operation but after Fran Lloyd’s visit we are hopeful and believe that NSP will continue working for the benefit and welfare of the villagers. Nepal School Projects has done lot of things for the villagers and I am also one of the fortunate one to be benefitted from NSP as the school I studied was built by NSP. There is only one Higher Secondary school in my village. There is lot of problems in my school. There are more than 70-80 students in one class. The school lacks adequate number of teachers. The students don’t have access to proper drinking water, sports, computers etc. Students have to trek down 3-4 hours to reach the school. Guardians and parents in my village are illiterate and ignorant. Despite all these ground facts, NSP has provided drinking water to many schools. Similarly, it has also constructed toilets that have helped in leading a hygienic life to the villagers. Villagers have learnt how to live a hygienic life thanks to NSP. I would not have been able to write down these few lines had it not been for NSP and its activities in the villages of Kaavre district. There are more areas where NSP can work in Kaavre. Government of Nepal has no presence in any area of the village and whatever development the villagers have seen is only through NSP. Villagers in Kaavre are very thankful to NSP and they want NSP to continue working for the benefit and welfare of people of Kaavre. I want to be a doctor in future but all depends on financial aspect. If I am not able to become a doctor, I would like to be a journalist and serve my village and my country.
