Project Kapilvastu, the kindergarten 'Ram Dulare' south of the provincial center 'Taulihawa', was completed in 2013. First there was a mud hut built by parents. A hut without a door, running water, or toilets.
Now, with the Foundation's support, there is a sturdy, lockable stone building, the interior walls beautifully decorated with colorful images of animals, the alphabet, and objects. At the back of the school, a toilet has been built and there is water pump on the property for clean water.
With the Foundation's assistance, the construction of a kindergarten has commenced in the village of Gauri, located slightly above Taulihawa. Hopefully to be completed in the spring of 2014. For lack of beter shelter, the children in that village used to receive education under a tree.
In the village of Baluhawa, the wish is for a school for 200 students, including 40 ECD pupils, because there too, education is given under a tree.
It probably sounds appealing: a canopy as a shelter, but in very warm and wet weather, a good building to be a better solution.
The foundation will make every effort possible to collect as much money to be able to support this even larger project.
