Nepal School Projects
Post Covid Vision
NSP’s Post Covid Vision is to continue to better the quality of life for the vulnerable populations in rural Nepal. We are firmly established in the villages and our Nepali partners continue to work hard in partnership with us.
There is so much news to report since our last newsletter! Our 2021 projects have all been successfully completed. Unfortunately they were a little over budget, due to the cost inflation and an increase in the cost of goods in Nepal. Both NSP Canada and NSP USA were able to cover these overages…..this year. 2022/23 will be a challenge.
New Projects for 2022/23
The project this year is extensive work on Shree Kaleshwori Primary School.
The work includes the construction of an 800 metre water pipeline, reservoir and tap stand; a 2 unit latrine; and the repair of a roof on the school in the village. It will benefit thirty-two households / families, including seventy-six children who attend the school and their twelve teachers. Babalal’s crew will have to clear and level the land to build the toilets. For the water demand, they will dig trenches for the pipeline, build a reservoir tank, and construct the tap stand. Lastly, they will repair the roof of the school. Don’t forget, most of this work is done with hand tools, not machines.
A New Fundraising Campaign will take place with Giving Tuesday on November 29, 2022
ARE YOU READY…WE REALLY NEED YOU!!!!! Watch for it!

High School Students Join us!
Last June, grade 8 students from Erin Centre Middle School, Sonika, Jude and Afnan, were winners in a charity challenge. Their group chose to research Nepal School Projects. They have since reached out to us and requested to join NSP as Junior Board Members. They will bring skills to the table like website design and social media skills. They are also fulfilling their secondary school, volunteer hour requirements. We are excited to welcome them. Watch for changes!
