EDUCATIONAL MATERIALS DISTRIBUTIONS IN KASHIGAUN AND KERAUJA VDCS IN GORKHA FOR EARTHQUAKE VICTIMS

 

EDUCATIONAL MATERIALS DISTRIBUTIONS IN KASHIGAUN AND KERAUJA VDCS IN GORKHA (19th – 24th MARCH 2016)

All packed and ready to go for educational distributions in Kashigaun and Kerauja VDC’s. Over 300- 50kg capacity rice sacks were packed, weighed and measured with grade specific school bags as well as individually tailored uniforms for 1,551 students in preparation for this epic adventure.

On 19th March we drive over 10 hours to reach the road head in Sotikhola. The next day we will transport the supplies via mule and helicopter to these rural communities in Gorkha!

We arrived at Soti Khola to the road head after a harrowing but beautiful 12 hr journey.

The team woke up at 4.30 am on 20th March to unload the vehicles and pack up the mules for their 12 hour journey. 50 mules just set off for the village with 2 SATHI staff accompanying them on foot. A second mule train will leave by tomorrow. It’s now time for breakfast before our helicopter arrives to shuttle more supplies to the other villages. Helicopter arrived and 3 of 8 shuttles to deliver the supplies have been completed. We maybe out of contact from here on in. Looking forward to updating everyone as cell towers permit in the days to come!

Thank you so much to our dear friends at Karma Flights for their generous donation to cover the balance of our transportation costs and for providing your vehicle for our staff. Thank you as always to our long term partners CAIRN TRUST UK for sponsoring this entire project. Last but not least thank you to our team of heroes from SATHI NEPAL for all their amazing work.

Together We Are Strong!!!
