Nursery and Primary school Re-opens
We re-opened our nursery and primary school yesterday together with thousands of schools in the earthquake affected areas. There were still many schools that remained closed due to the extensive damages caused by the earthquake. Some school managed to build temporary classrooms from bamboos, woods and tarpaulins. Luckily KTS primary school building only sustained minor cracks which have been repaired last week.
The student turnout in primary school was very low. This week the students and teachers will be involved in group activities to help students and teachers recover from the trauma caused by the earthquake.
Repair works at KTS:
Repair works at Nursery and Primary school was completed last week making it ready for the school re-opening this week.
From this week repair works at dye unit boundary wall has started.
Supports to earthquake affected Artisans
Mrs Dev Laxmi Mushyako, a group leader from Thecho, Lalitpur was the first artisan we had visited after the first earthquake. She has been working with us for more than 10 years. One side of her home had collapsed completely she had been taking shelter in her neighbours newly built house unaffected by the earthquakes. They completed demolition of the house and are going to build a temporary shelter nearby where her house once stood. They will be using the woods and corrugated roofs from her demolished house for temporary shelter and KTS has provided more corrugated roofing to complete the temporary shelter. She will be sharing the shelter with her family of 5; mother-in-law, husband and two children aged 8 and 5.
